Oaxis Inkcase i7 Plus

Inkcase i7

The Oaxis Inkcase i7 Plus proves two screens are better than one by turning the rear of the iPhone Plus into an e-reader. 

It might look like any ordinary phone cover, but this waterproof, shockproof and scratch resistant case has an extra trick up its sleeve in the form of an E Ink second screen.

Once connected to an iPhone Plus via Bluetooth, the InkCase uses an accompanying app to let you buy books, customise widgets, view images, personalise calendars and tasks, check the weather and more.

If your battery level is running low, switching content from the phone’s main screen to the 5.2-inch Carta 1.2 E Ink display can save precious power and deliver text and pictures at a super clear 540 x 960, 217dpi resolution.

The case adds just 4.5mm depth to the back of an iPhone 6 Plus, 6S Plus or 7 Plus and weighs in at just 80g, making it half the weight of an Amazon Kindle and Oaxis claim this makes it the lightest and thinnest e-reader in the world.

Currently crowdsourcing on Kickstarter, the InkCase i7 Plus is expected to start shipping worldwide in August. Oaxis already offer E Ink cases for the iPhone 6, 6S and 7.
