InkCase

Requiring virtually no power to display an image. Once an image or text is set, it consumes no battery for as long as it is displayed.

Oaxis is touting the InkCase i7 as the world’s lightest E Ink display for the iPhone 7 and you can pre-order it now. The InkCase’s 4.3-inch display harnesses anti-glare properties, offering users the ultimate eReading experience. The InkCase i7 features a “Read It Now” function, allowing readers to bypass all distractions with the option to download and archive advertisement-free articles from mobile browsers and apps as well as countless eBooks for enjoyment. Another thing to note is that the InkCase i7 screen is always on, only utilizing battery when refreshed. Oaxis touts the following features of the InkCase.

  • Customizable photo wallpaper
  • Ability to receive push notifications and create task lists
  • BubblePro Technology for drop-proof protection
  • Health App Integration
  • Increased RAM power and storage capacity

The company also made the same sort of case for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s which can be seen in the video demo below.

The InkCase certainly looks like a useful tool especially for those who do a lot of reading and want to consume less power when doing so. The specs on the E Ink display are 217dpi at 480×800 resolution which isn’t too bad for a black and white low power consuming display. I can see this being useful for notifications and e-readers as you wouldn’t have to use your main display for simple tasks which drain power.

Requiring virtually no power to display an image. Once an image or text is set, it consumes no battery for as long as it is displayed. Minimal battery is consumed only when the screen is refreshed. Choose your favorite photo and have it displayed for months! InkCase i7 offers military standard drop protection. Using the latest BubblePro Technology, millions of Micro Weave locks together to reinforce the case rigidity. Energy from an impact is absorbed by the Micro Weaves and spread across the entire outer case. Giving you a complete peace of mind.

You can pre-order the case for iPhone 7 now and the iPhone 7 Plus version is expected to be available in Q1 of 2017. What do you think of the InkCase? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.
