Arc Pulse: iPhone 12 case reduced to the bare essentials

With Arc pulse The Dutch start-up Arc wants to rethink the smartphone cover for the Apple iPhone. Because instead of one comprehensive iPhone case, which covers the entire edges, buttons and the back, there are two attachable parts that only protect the four corners and the camera. The smartphone protection project is currently still being financed by Indiegogo. On the side there however, you can already find a few prototype pictures, an introduction video and further information. I have summarized the most important things for you in the following.

With Arc Pulse, the makers behind Arc want to keep the iPhone feeling, but still offer protection. Here the iPhone case is rethought and only the corners and the camera are protected.

Arc Pulse iPhone case with a unique design

According to the timeline of Moritz, Tom and Niclas - the three men behind Arc - the idea for the newly designed smartphone protection came about at the end of 2018. Arc was then launched in August 2019. The first prototypes came a month later. After more than 40 adjustments to the design, the current look of Arc Pulse for the iPhone was determined in August 2020.

So the three of them found Indiegogo in October. If the financing target of 10.000 euros is reached within a month, the first copies of Arc Pulse should be delivered as early as January 2021. After the early bird offers, all other investors should also receive their delivery in February 2021.

So far, almost 1.300 euros have been collected for iPhone protection

When I wrote this article, 1.297 euros had already been collected. This sum was invested by 11 people. But there are still 28 days left, so that the financing target will certainly be easily achieved. If the financing target is exceeded, then among other things a larger color palette for the Arc Pulse protection device should be realized. The right protection could then be offered for every iPhone color. 

Personally, I think the idea is good because I'm not that big a fan of smartphone cases either, but I drop my iPhone at least once a month. Mostly it then falls on straight surfaces (tiles, floorboards, footpaths) so that Arc Pulse would be sufficient as protection. With this link you can follow the project, which is also about maintaining the look and feel of the iPhone despite the protection.

    I'm still waiting for my iPhone 5 Kickstarter case, the € 35 is gone. Have become more cautious about crowdfunding.

      Hello Raffi! I've never baked anything before, but I've heard the saying "baked is not bought" a number of times. That probably shows that your case is not uncommon. Unfortunately…
