Here’s an interesting iPhone case called DB Cases that brings the sound of your internal speakers from the back to the front of your phone, effectively increasing the sound by 4 decibels.

The dB Case is an acoustic case that amplifies the sound of your iPhone by 3-4dB by redirecting the sound towards you. I have a few different models to choose from, including a clip on accessory for people who don’t like to wear cases that much. Each of the cases come in a variety of “green” plastics and different wood grains to choose from, all of which offer performance and protection in an easy to carry solution. I’ve had a lot of musicians inquire about the wooden cases and how they want one to match their guitar, I thought that was pretty cool idea. I’m starting with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad cases at first.. But ultimately I plan on building dB Cases for Android and other mobile platforms too. The cool thing about my project is I plan to manufacture the cases from new types of bio-resins, so even the plastic cases will be 100% natural just like the wooden models.
I am currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, in the hopes of moving onto the next step of manufacturing and packaging the dB Cases. Within the first few days, I’ve already raised 11% of my goal with only a few people backing the project. Ive also had interest from a large case company that wants to start licensing the case idea and selling it under their own brand, which is really cool, but I need some help spreading the word to reach my funding goal before I can do any sort of deal with them.
He is also looking for help funding his project so he can go on making more cool DB cases for all types of phones including Android. – Go here to help him with his project.
