Mobile accessory maker Moshi has announced SenseCover, a touch-enabled flip cover and case for iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. SenseCover features embedded sensors that allow users to swipe to answer phone calls or dismiss alarms without exposing the iPhone’s screen.
To achieve this, Moshi have embedded a set of touch-sensitive plates in the case’s front cover where the iPhone’s ‘slide to unlock’ text or ‘slide to answer’ or end call button would be situated on the screen giving users access to these buttons without flipping open the cover. There is also a cut-out window at the top of the cover revealing dat and time information or caller ID.
When the user wants access to the touchscreen, the cover can be folded back and a magnetic clasp keeps the cover open. The SenseCover is designed to allow access to all hardware buttons and camera.
Aesthetically, the SenseCover bears a resemblance to Samsung’s S-View flip covers for its Galaxy line of devices.
The SenseCover is available in two colors, steel black and brushed titanium, and is available to order now for $45 from Moshi.
