There’s The White iPhone, The Black iPhone, And Now, For $40 Extra, You Can Have The Translucent iPhone

We’ve seen an iPhone 5 plated in gold, we’ve seen them with diamonds, and of course, there are enough different cases out there (including ours from iFrogz) to make your head spin. What we hadn’t seen yet was a transparent, completely see-through replacement back piece for iPhone 5. This isn’t a case, a sleeve, a holster, or a cover. And why else is it unique? Because as far as we can tell, it’s the first of its kind to actually let you see inside your iPhone 5.

While I certainly appreciate all the components inside my iPhone that make it work the way it does, I’m not sure I want to stare at them all day. I’m also not keen on the idea of voiding my warranty by taking the phone apart to do this mod. But, I know plenty of you crafty hipsters out there will love the idea. You can pick up the kit and the necessary hardware, here. Standard shipping is $6 bucks, but don’t expect it for a few weeks, as it’s shipping from Hong Kong. If you just can’t wait that long, there’s a 5-7 day option, which adds an extra $20 to your total.
