Kickstarter has become the new home for up and coming accessory makers for smartphones. Whether it be cases, or a Pebble smartwatch, Kickstarter has been home to some great projects, and today one more became officially available for purchase.
The AL13 bumper is a lightweight aluminum bumper for the iPhone. The bumper costs $79.99, and all Kickstarter orders have already been shipped and delivered. While bumpers are known to have a significant impact on signal in the iPhone 4, 4S, and 5, the maker of the case, designed by m, claims that the case will only cause – at the absolute most – a 10% drop in signal. In testing, many didn’t register a drop in signal at all. To pick up one for yourself, head on over to the official website for the bumper.
