Ever been playing a game on your iPhone, only to be frustrated that your fingers block your view of the action? The Sensus is a case designed with just that in mind, one that adds touch sensitive panels to the back of the iPhone, keeping your fingers clear and out of the way.
Sensus is a premium protective case for iPhone that has touch capacitive sensors built into the back and right edge. Sensus talks to iPhone through the Apple’s proprietary connector in the bottom of the phone, providing immediate response time. The same connection provides the power needed to run Sensus’ dual microprocessors. No bulky batteries needed.
The Sensus is currently in pre-production, and expected to ship in 2013 for $59. You can pre-order for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, or put your name down for when more information becomes available about the iPhone 5.
As cool as an idea as this is, there is of course one major problem — the apps have to build in support for it. There’s no way to have this function natively, so only the apps that opted to use the SDK will be able to take advantage of it. And no matter how many do, it’ll just be a tiny fraction of the possible games out there.
