Just wanted to let you all know that after getting my iPhone and sorting through available options for cases, I am going my own route. I work with CNC mills, lathes, and composite shops...and I am going to try to work out a neat CF or maybe billet aluminum iPhone case. If they work out well maybe I will find a retailer to sell them for me. I am looking to make something that is perfectly form fitting while not masking the design elements of the iPhone too much [or when it is necessary, use something cool and high tech like CF, instead of clear plastic or rubber].

that is perfect, part of my car is carbon fiber. When you get it made let me know I will have a sales outlet for you if the item is perfect.

Carbon Fiber... sweet!

I'm sure I can speak for a lot of people when I say, it would depend upon how it looks and how well it protects. But sign me up - especially if you can incorporate some form of cable wrap/cable management on the back. Cable management has been extensively overlooked inthe design of 99% of the iPhone cases available.

would this be 100% carbon fiber ? or just an overlay? I would be interested in a REAL carbon fiber case just for the hell of it.

count me in!

Wow, yeah, count me in on anything cool like that! Just add a rubber gasket of some kind inside so the iPhone is cushioned and can't shake around at all.

then sell one to me!

Liner Needed

I would be interested as well -- but that metal would scratch up the iPhone terribly. Also, what about the weight of a billet case?

:cool:

You took the words right out of my mouth. I'd be real interested in seeing this soon.

Any updates? I'd love to see something new in carbon fiber, metal, or a combination of the two. Let us know!

It would be cool to give color options and annodize the aluminum. My company has a machine shop for prototypes and production parts. We make some cool valve blocks and hand controllers that are annodized aluminum. They look sharp! Great idea!
