Capture Your Off-road Action with This iPhone 4 Case: Another Awesome Accessory on Kickstarter (Video)

Our Kickstarter obsession continues. One member of the LAUNCH collective has backed 20 projects and is obsessed with all the iPhone and iPad hotness.

Our latest find: the iPhone 4 Action Case, which will turn your iPhone into a stable action cam if Matt Ozawa, a full-time designer and outdoor sports enthusiast, succeeds in raising $25K. The case fits any GoPro camera mount ($12.99 and up), which can be attached to your head, helmet, bike, motorcycle or car.

GoPro cameras start at $179 compared to $49 for the Action Case (if you pledge that amount on Kickstarter). [ For cool iPad accessories see this story ]. 

"Last winter I was preparing to go snowboarding in Utah and I was about to purchase the GoPro, but at the same time I was newly married with our first child on the way so I knew I shouldn't be spending the hefty price tag of the GoPro," Matt tells LAUNCH via email. "I thought for sure there was a product on the market. I googled it and nothing. Instantly I started engineering the product with a friend of mine."

Although the first case is not waterproof, Matt says that if the current project is successfully funded, he will move to a fully waterproof case to market the case to water sports enthusiasts.

"I expect a lot of different industries can benefit to the case," says Matt. "Snow, moto, biking, road, skydive I mean the list can go on and on."

So far the project has two backers and $118; 39 days remain for fundraising. Backers who pledge $64+ get the case in addition to a GoPro mount.
