This 3D-Printed iPhone Case Is Perfect For Anyone Who Regrets Buying An iPhone
Shouldn't it be the other way around?
If just 10 years ago someone told us that 3D printers would be a thing, we would laugh in their face. But alas, the future is here and 3D printers are a thing. Creatives have printed everything from prosthetic limbs for animals to a cheaper alternative for braces.
Innovative developer Nick Lee recently 3D printed a phone case for his iPhone that can run Android Marshmallow. Lee cloned the operating software by following the cue from the Android Open Source Project.
Once he figured out how to run the program, Lee printed a case that could hold the program board and the phone.
The original case was extremely bulky, but Lee found a way to slim down the design while adding HDMI and USB ports as well as a SD slot.
The case is now about the same size as a smartphone battery case.
Lee then published a YouTube video showing the capabilities of the Android case.
Once an iPhone is plugged into the case and his Tendigi app is activated, the phone's software is almost instantaneously transformed.
You can even access Google Play to download apps to your new "Android phone."
It's like having two phones in one!
With one simple tap of the home button, you're right back to your iPhone.
Lee is also the tech genius behind running your Apple Watch on Windows 95. We can only wonder what he's got next up his sleeves.
