Steve Jobs in Carbonite iPhone Case crafted by Society6
This iPhone accessory, which is quite possibly the geekiest toy/work of art known to man, will likely never be yours. The iPhone case depicts Apple CEO frozen in carbonite but good luck trying to buy it.
Society6, the makers of the case, have designed a protective iPhone case that features ailing Apple CEO Steve Jobs encased in Carbonite, a reference to Han Solo’s fate in “Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.”
If you love Star Wars or just want one of the coolest looking iPhone cases we’ve seen in a while, this $30 snap-on called the “Steve Jobs in Carbonite” case is for you. With a very detailed and disturbed looking Steve Jobs in his usual ensemble (jeans, turtleneck and glasses), the realism is certainly there.
A statement for the case creator, Greg Koeing says, “Well it was fun while it lasted. Yesterday, Society6 was issued a cease and desist from Apple’s lawyers. So I’m sorry to say that the cases and skins are no longer available. Sorry for the inconvenience.”
The snap-on Steve Jobs in Carbonite case ($35) has a slim profile, is impact-resistant and is compatible with the iPhone 3G, 3Gs, or 4.
