Case, Crossover iPhone and iPad

This is a Case. It was invented by Jake Zien, Charlie Dougiello, Jacob Bonaire, Richard Moreen, Sonia Covarrubias-Garcia and Spike Mendelsohn and designed by Quirky and manufactured by Quirky. It is dated 2013. Its medium is silicone, nylon.

Moreen was rummaging through his messenger bag when he noticed how elastic straps are used to keep laptops and papers secure. He applied the same idea to Crossover, a mobile device case with silicone straps that intersect to secure cards, cash, and receipts.
Quirky designs and manufactures real people’s inventions by inviting the public to submit and participate in the development process. At meetings held online and in person at Quirky’s headquarters in New York City, members gather to evaluate ideas. Quirky’s designers, engineers, and marketing experts work closely with the community on nearly all aspects of development to bring approved ideas to life. Each Quirky product is a direct response to an everyday problem.

This object was donated by Quirky. It is credited Courtesy of Quirky.
