Most Bizarre iPhone Accessory Ever – An Android Phone That Straps Onto Your iPhone- Getting Released
While we’re all for advancing technology- both with upgrades and with innovative accessories- a new iPhone accessory that is garnering a lot of attention on Kickstarter is rather bizarre.
The product, which is called “Eye- The Smart iPhone Case”– literally straps a 5 inch, 256 GB Android phone onto the back of your iPhone. It also has battery power, wireless charging, two sim card slots, and more.
The Kickstarter began with a goal of raising $95,000, but it has already exceeded this, pulling in $123,611 and receiving 890 backers. There are also 32 days still to go, so it will likely continue to pull in money.
The issue with this product is, simply, why? While Android has always been more open than iPhone, people tend to stick with a particular operating system for specific reasons. Having an additional phone on the back of your phone not only seems bulky and unnecessary, but also has us cringing at the thought of what would happen if you were to drop your phone. Now, you would have the chance of smashing two screens, as opposed to just one.
If you want more battery power, buy a battery case. If you’re an Android user, then rock an Android. If you prefer Apple, stick with that. This product doesn’t seem to do anything to advance technology and just seems like more of a nuisance.
