AL13, an iPhone bumper made from lightweight aerospace aluminum, is seeking funding on Kickstarter.

AL13 is a slim, lightweight bumper made from aerospace aluminum that offers protection without changing the look of your iPhone. We need your help to move it into production. We’ve perfected the design and made the moulds, but we need additional funding to bring it to market.

Features:
AL13 works by raising your iPhone away from surfaces protecting the edges and absorbing the shock from bumps and knocks.

● AL13 raises the phone from surface contact.
● Rubber Lining acts as a shock absorber to minimize impact damage to your phone and also protects your iPhone when your installing AL13
● High impact, anti-scratch, anti-fingerprint and anti-glare polyurethane screen protector keeps your screen in pristine condition.
● Simple Slide Cover – no screws and tools, It simply glides on and locks into place

The bumper is available in black, red, silver and a limited edition Kickstarter green. An early pledge of $45 can get you a bumper. The project has raised $3,118 of its $20,000 goal with 47 days to go.

Look at these prices for a big chunk of metal that will ruin your signal. Come on. Stop hating. The cheapest one is $140! http://www.elementcase.com/iPhone-5-s/136.htm

@Davy Manzana that's not a fair comparison. The quality of those other bumpers is poor and the biggest issue they have is they KILL your signal! Plus half of them don't look as good. Besides eBay isn't a retail store. That's like going to a yard sale and saying you got an LV bag for $20.

Have you done enough research on the effect of using aluminum on the iPhone 4s'? Not to rain on your idea, but there are a number of aluminum bumpers being dumped due to the negative impact on the phone's reception, "antenna gate" Do a search on Amazon on "iPhone 4 Aluminum Bumper" and look at the original prices, selling prices and the negative reviews. I've been tempted numerous times to buy them, they are beautiful. The iPhone 5 has a different antenna design so I don't know if it will fail on that device.
