LifeProof Cases Debut at LAUNCH Conference
SAN FRANCISCO – February 24, 2011 –LifeProof Cases, Inc.today announced that it is one of 40 never-before seen technology companies selected to present at theLAUNCH Conference, taking place in San Francisco on February 23 and 24, 2011.
To an audience of hundreds of potential investors and media, LifeProof introduced the first and only waterproof, shockproof, dustproof, and snowproof case for Apple’s iPhone® 4 in a sleek design that provides full access to all device functions. The LifeProof cases are available for pre-order with shipment in April 2011 at an introductory price of $69.95.
“We designed LifeProof to meet the challenges of everyday life while maintaining the elegant look that Apple is known for,” said Gary Rayner, LifeProof Cases founder and CEO. “LifeProof is kid-proof, swim-proof, beer-proof, bike-proof, klutz-proof, hiking-proof and more. At the end of the day, the issue is not only about protection, but freedom - freedom to build relationships, gain knowledge, exercise, and juggle work; freedom for all people anywhere to go everywhere.”
Unlike bulky protective cases, LifeProof cases are sleek and ultra-slim yet designed to meet military specifications (MIL-SPEC), giving individuals complete freedom to use their iPhone in any wet, dirty, freezing or rough situation. Texting in the shower, videos in the pool, ‘FaceTime’ on the surfboard, LifeProof makes it possible to be anywhere with your mobile device.
LifeProof has several patent applications for 20 innovations and inventions, totaling more than 400 pages. The company spent 18 months and more than $1M to meet the stringent environmental challenges and achieve a simple, sleek design. It was an extraordinarily difficult project that many of the industrial design firms initially contacted said could not be done. LifeProof went back to the drawing board five times to get it right in order to achieve its strict environmental and design goals.
"We knew LifeProof was a killer product that everyone in the LAUNCH community would not only get a kick out of--but that many would want to own!" said Jason Calacanis, founder of LAUNCH.
