    For those with android we had this in the form of breath notification for awhile. But for our iPhone buddies @bkdodger and @cereal killer, they may miss this feature from android. :p

    Not bad for a case. But like you said, we've had that, and in a case, before on Android

    Tapped from a Nexus 6

    Back in the 90s I put a replacement antenna on an LG flip phone that lit up when I got a phone call or text message. The incoming radio waves caused the antenna to light up.

    Haha no thank you ...I don't do cases with open top and bottom ...I will stick with my camera light flash for notifications...

    I will have to check some reviews though ...

    Open top and bottom, not great protection, phone has to be face down, can't really see it in the light = FAIL :) :)

    Case is more of a gimmick than actually useful. I will pass.

    Thanks for the tag dude!

    I used to have these on my Nokias. Then after that did the clear case with tons of lights in them on my Nextels

    My experience was in the 00's, but I had similar setups on at least one of my phones. Antenna that lit up, battery (or maybe just a back case) that would light up with incoming stuff. That was intense in the dark. Haha!

    As for this case, I think it's a neat idea, but as others have said, seems like it could've been done better. Hopefully they'll improve upon the tech and such.
