HTC Ice View Case

Finalist

Competition: Spark:Spring Product
Designer: HTC Design Team
Design Type:
Company / Organization / School: HTC

The HTC Ice View is a stylish protective flip case for the HTC 10, accentuating the design of HTC’s flagship phone while also adding novel methods of interacting with everyday information. The thin frosted front repels nicks and scratches when the phone is in a pocket or bag, and is translucent enough to reveal the screen. When the cover is closed, an array of information—notifications, battery status, music controls, alarms, incoming phone calls, weather and more—are rendered in a clear, easily visible way unique to Ice View. The owner can glance at the cover without the sometimes socially distracting motions of retrieving and unlocking the phone. The Ice View is also interactive and touch-sensitive, allowing the owner to immediately respond to notifications and calls, control music playback and even quick-launch the camera and capture a snapshot. The borderless cover becomes an extension of the screen itself, with the flexibility to accommodate future motion gestures and information displays.
