The problem is that this status LED is on the backside of your iPhone so that when the screen is facing up, you won’t be able to see it. FLASHr solves this problem by having an LED Flash notification case that allows the sides of the case to illuminate when a notification occurs. The coolest thing ever? No batteries are required. It also won’t take much power away from your iPhone by using the case. The way it works is it uses a special reflector that beams the LED flash from the iPhone to the edges of the FLASHr case. It will come in different colors and is seeking $75,000 of funding. With a minimum pledge of $35, you will secure your very own FLASHr case. FLASHr brings the vibe back to your iPhone.
