I don’t know about you, but my iPhone seems to love losing power at a rapid rate. Every single day. Whether I’m using it to follow a routine at the gym or trying to find that hole-in-the wall dive bar my friends are at, I have to constantly unlock and check my phone. popSLATE might be the coolest solution to my problem.

It’s a four-inch E Ink screen on an iPhone case that is always on and fully customizable. The developers are also working on an open API that will allow anyone to create third party apps to work with the hardware. This is such a simple idea that I’m surprised it hadn’t been done sooner. I can’t wait to try it out.
