RADIUS Case: The Minimalist Case for iPhone 5 [video]

Billed as “the only aluminum case that showcases the iPhone 5’s design elements with its ultra minimalistic approach” and weighing in at less than 1/5 of an ounce, the RADIUS is a bold departure from conventional bumper and snap cases and consists of a simple aircraft-grade aluminum x-frame along with four corner bumpers and stainless steel screws to connect the pieces.

Beveled like the iPhone 5 itself, the hollowed case’s corners extend slightly beyond the frame of the phone, thus allowing users to place it face-down on flat surfaces without the risk of damaging the 4-inch Retina display. Designed to match either the black or white versions of the device, the RADIUS has already reached mod-3′s funding goal via Kickstarter and is currently on target for a March 2013 release.
