The Consumer Electronics Show is a week in the past now and as expected the annual event was as a showcase of tech titans, flexing their guns and showing off their wares for the next 12 months. But now that the dust has settled following bombshells such as Samsung’s monster 89-inch S9 UHD TV and Sony’s powerful Xperia Z smartphone, another band of little heroes has surfaced as an unexpected highlight to this year’s show!
Being the giant comic nerds we are here at Gadget Helpline, we were delighted to discover this range of Chara-Covers by Huckleberry, which are based on some of our favourite comic icons and will please both DC and Marvel fans alike!
With cutesy interpretations of characters such as Superman, Batman, Spider-Man and Wolverine, the colourful and rubberised covers fit snuggly around the iPhone 4, iPhone 5 and iPod Touch, with the touch screen and camera lens accessible on the back of the character, giving the gadget a unique appearance and super-power protection against the thumps and bumps of day-to-day battles!
We think you’ll agree they’re pretty cool but we can see the DC and Marvel Chara-Covers coming up against an arch enemy in the form of small pockets – Because unless you’re a youngster or a dedicated geek these aren’t the most practical of Apple iPhone accessories!
Series 1 is now available from retailers such as Amazon, costing around $35 each and Huckleberry looks to expand the Chara-Cover brand throughout 2013 with licences including Despicable Me, The Muppets, and a number of Disney properties. We’ve got our fingers crossed for Star Wars!
