looking to add some bling to your iPhone? why not go beyond the case and do the bling thing on the display as well? thanks to the Kyocera Opal Protective Film for iPhone, you can actually do that. no kidding. basically, what Kyocera did was to infuse the firm’s unique “Kyoto Opal” material into the polyethylene terephthalate (PET) protective film and the result is a screen protector with, well, the bling factor, brought about but those sparkling opals. according to Kyocera, the extremely fine grain structure of the Kyoto Opal allows the opal material to appear transparent when the device’s screen is turned on which should not interfere with the screen display or operations.
however, the real bling starts to show when the screen is off; when the device’s display is off, “the opal material shines brilliantly in different colors depending on the angle it is viewed from” and because of that, the protective film makes it difficult to see the display from the side, which also helps to maintain your handset privacy from those creepy, peeping folks. a much needed ancillary benefit cos’ with such a bling right smack on your device’s display, it is hard not for anyone to take a second look – if not staring at it. so there you have it, a piece of plastic that not only, protects your precious device’s screen, gives you the bling and at the same time, keeps side-prying eyes out. seriously, what’s not to love?
the Kyocera Opal Protective Film for iPhone is available to the U.S. market through Power Support for $29.95 a pop. available for iPhone 5, 5s, as well as 5c and in a choice of two opal colors: green and red. take a few more look in the image gallery below.
