MagniCase for iPhone Magnifies Display for Easier Reading

While Android superphones are getting equipped with increasingly larger screens, it looks like the iPhone is going to stick with 3.5-inch displays for the time being. What if you wanted to keep using your iDevice, but you wanted to have a display that’s a fair bit bigger? That’s the idea behind the MagniCase.

Currently a project on Kickstarter, MagniCase is a case for the iPhone 4/4S that comes with a built-in magnifying lens. It swings out from the back with an attached arm and it effectively gives you the experience of using a 5.3-inch display, which would be the same size as the Samsung Galaxy Note. The flip-out magnifying Fresnel lens enlarges your display by 50%.

The flip-out design means that you don’t add too much bulk to your iPhone and because the Fresnel lens is made from a shatter-resistant acrylic glass, it can also be used to prop up your iPhone and work like a stand. The retail price for the MagniCase will be $40 and it’ll come in six different colors, but if you pledge $30, you’ll get a free MagniCase with free shipping within the US.
