Gibbage Cases, 3D printed protection for your HTC 8X
Gibbage Cases is an interesting home grown venture that takes advantage of 3D printing to produce a protective case for your HTC 8X Windows Phone. The cases are the creation of Kevin "Gibbage" Miller that have been designed with three principals in mind. Protection, Design and Function.
The Gibbage Case protects the soft outer coating and corners of the 8X by creating a small buffer between the Windows Phone and harsh surfaces. The design is minimal to complement the HTC 8X's native design and the case hopes to be functional by giving the 8X a little more grip, easier access to the buttons all the while not interfering with wireless charging (Verizon models) and other core phone functions.
The Gibbage Cases are a work in progress with limited color selections. Apparently the dyes in the 3D printing process will leach into the soft case of the 8X. While the cases are only available for the 8X, Miller is working on designs for the Nokia Lumia 920.
Depending on the design and color, the Gibbage Cases are running in the neighborhood of $25-30. The Gibbage Case does make a nice first impression as being a stylish case for your HTC 8X. We've got a review unit heading our way and we'll get a review up as soon as possible.
