The case is made of aircraft aluminum and polycarbonate, (read that as “sturdy as hell”), and the enclosure has 16 tools enclosed in it.
The tools are as follows:
- 2.5″ knife with 0.75″ of serrations
- 1.8″ Sawblade
- Small flathead screwdriver
- Large flathead screwdriver
- Medium Phillips screwdriver
- Needle-nose pliers
- Wire cutters
- 6 metric Allen wrenches
- Wire stripper
- 120mm ruler (110mm on iPhone 4/4s)
- Bottle opener
Now you can carry a fully functional, high-quality multi-tool built right into the case of your iPhone. And at 89 grams you won’t even notice it is there. Utilizing quality hardened tool steels, aircraft aluminum, and polycarbonate, TaskOne is the next generation of multi-tools. Sixteen of the most useful tools are engineered into a package that adds no more thickness to your phone than a standard case.
The site claims that the total thickness of the case is as thin, or thinner than many other cases, and comes in a variety of colors: Slate Grey, Cherry Red, Jet Black, and the Indiegogo only color Orange Flame.
The tools are housed in a light but strong precision machined aircraft aluminum enclosure connected to the phone via molded outer polycarbonate bands. The tools are secured via custom spring assemblies. Extend them via the low-profile buttons on the back of the phone, and the tools are automatically fixed in the extended position during use. The raised bezel on the front of the case keeps the screen safe from damage.
As is usual in this type of offering, various pledge levels are available, ranging from $25 (you’ll receive a holiday thank you card), all the way up to $6,250, (The Mega Distributor Pack. One hundred TaskOne cases, with free shipping in the US.) The Early Bird Special will probably receive the most action at first, where for $75 bucks you’ll get a jet black TaskOne for either the iPhone 4/4S, or the iPhone 5.
This looks like a really cool project, and I’m hoping it will get off of the ground. I’ll be making a pledge as soon as I finish writing this article.
If we can get our hands on a TaskOne we’ll be sure to give you a full and complete report on it.
