Skrillex and Google have “teamed up” to bring a new line of Live Cases that juice your phone with new features.
The new Live Cases have gaudy sci-fi designs straight from the mind of the electronic musicstar. The cases have built-in NFC chips that talk to your phone and unlock new features: “live wallpaper” that changes throughout the day and access to VIP content.
They cost $40 a pop, and are available for Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
Personally, I would pay money to have no Skrillex on my phone, but I don’t mind the overall concept here. I wish the enhancements were more futuristic. Frankly, a Mophie Juice Pack is more innovative than these cases, which are mostly a gimmick. I hear Skrillex has fans, though. I’m sure they’ll appreciate this.
