Element Cases releases Vapor

When I release vapor, people clear the room. When Element Cases does it, heads turn every which way. This new iPhone 4 case by Element Case is a 30 gram aluminium frame lined with shock absorbant rubber. It looks absolutely gorgeous and will begin shipping on July 11.

Bad part? It costs $79.95 for the basic model and $99.95 for the carbon fiber back plate. But trust me – these cases are monsters. I looked at one a while back and you could probably run over any iPhone in it with a very small truck or, barring that, a bike.
