Never miss another notification again! Patent Pending
Sparx is an iPhone 5 case that is powered by the iPhone’s LED camera flash, and iOS’s built in “LED Flash Alerts”. When you turn on “LED Flash Alerts” in your Accessibility settings, your iPhone’s LED camera flash lights up for calls, texts, emails, and for all Push Notifications (Twitter, Facebook, Games, or any app with Push Notification settings). Sparx insures your notifications are seen in vivid color from any orientation and in any situation. For us, this design isn’t just about functionality and protection, but it’s also about a case that’s just fun to roll with.
Vivid color at night.
Hex Backlight allows you to see your notifications, even when your phone is face down resting on the protective bezel. Protect the privacy of your notifications.
Shine on, shine on.
Daytime? No worries. Sparx can even be seen by the sun.
No more fuzzy pictures. While Sparx is activated, your camera and flash lens are both protected from miscellaneous pocket/purse items.
The removable bottom case slips off for convenient charging with all brands of docks and cables. Easily dock your iPhone without taking off the case.
The two piece hardshell design provides complete coverage for all critical corners and edges, while still allowing clear access to all buttons and ports. All materials and access holes meet Apple’s case design guidelines. No metals or glass filled materials, open air for all antennas.
All-around protection. A raised bezel keeps the screen safe and pristine. Protect your screen from coming in contact with other surfaces that might scratch it.
Made of 4 parts, Sparx easily snaps together. We’ve decided to allow you to assemble Sparx so you’ll be able to mix and match any color you want.
The best part about Sparx is you can try it now.

We didn’t get where we are by accident or luck. You can never exhaust the prototype process, but we’ve come close. To this point, every major change we’ve made in CAD has been validated by a physical prototype. No exceptions.
A Few of Older Prototypes
In our latest design iteration, we decided to focus on the brighter sides of the case. This of course makes sense knowing that the LED flash is biased to one corner, but we wanted to know exactly what was possible. We decided to start with illuminating the entire perimeter, and then worked towards a more intentional, consistent look. This led us to scaling back our Glow Frame to the top and right user side of the phone, (opposite volume buttons).
