smartphones might multitask across the entire digital universe, but when it comes to dealing with basic physical problems in real life, most of them don’t go much beyond the capacities of your average doorstop. the ‘taskone‘ swiss army knife iPhone case by tasklab is set to change that, offering an array of 22 tools while simultaneously protecting devices from scratches, scrapes, and falls. a knife, three screwdrivers, wirecutters, pliers, a ruler, and of course a bottle opener are among the tools usable directly from the case, while a removable tool provides six allen wrench heads and wire strippers. the ‘taskone’ also includes a built-in dual kickstand for use in either landscape or portrait orientation.

 

the tools are manufactured from hardened stainless steel while the actual case, weighing in at 89 grams, is composed of a protective internal polymer cushion covered in aircraft aluminum and polycarbonate.  strength-reinforced edges feature cutaway access to buttons and controls.

 

after a successful indiegogo campaign earlier this year, the first ‘task one’ swiss army knife iPhone cases are expected to begin shipping in the next few days.

  • … and not only airport security would be an issue. technically this thing is a knife disguised as a phone. at least in switzerland you are not allowed to carry this kind of gadget (i’m not sure about possession but it could be illegal as well) and i’m sure there will be simialr rules in many european countries.

  • How to have your phone confiscated by airport security!

  • I was thinking the same thing as Alexander plus the amount of pressure, liquid and vibration that would come in contact with the phone. Not to mention the totally unergonomic grip.

  • I was just going to order but I thought… what about security checkpoints?
