Turn Your iPhone Into a Classic Sega System


I don’t own an iPhone so I normally don’t pay much attention to the iPhone case market, but this new line of Sega-themed accessories from Tommo Mobile almost makes me want to buy an iPhone just so I can try them out.

The standout products of the Sega Hardware Series are the iPhone 5/5s cases which encapsulate Apple’s smartphone in the shells of vintage Sega systems like the Genesis, Game Gear, and Saturn. There’s even a case modeled after a Sega Genesis controller!

Tommo’s not stopping at iPhone cases either. The lineup will also include Power Partner portable battery chargers in Genesis and Saturn models (with travel pouches and protective cases), as well as a Sega Genesis Replica Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker featuring a 3.5mm headphone jack, a built-in rechargeable battery, and support for NFC, AptX, and Multi-paring.

In the U.S., the Sega Hardware Series iPhone 5/5s cases are scheduled to release later this month and will sell for $24.99 each. (Those sound like great stocking stuffer ideas to me!) The cases will be followed by the battery chargers and Bluetooth speaker in December. The battery packs will sell for $69.99, and the speaker for $89.99.

Releases in Japan and Asia are also planned for later this year, however the European roll-out won’t begin until spring 2014.
