If you have been one of those users, who likes both Android as well as iOS and wants the best of both the worlds, then this Kickstarter project is just the right one for you.

‘Eye’ is a case for your iPhone which has Android built into it. Yes, this unique design approach has gotten it so much attention that it has successfully raised over $95,000 with 32 days remaining. And just as you read above, it is literally a case with a screen at the back running Android by itself. This part of the case which runs Android has its own set of hardware and it only shares the camera, the speakers and the microphone of the iPhone.

Talking about this secondary screen at the back, it is a 5″ AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 and it is running Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box. Under the hood, there is an Helio P20 chipset with an Octa-Core CPU and also has a Mali-T880 MP2 900MHz GPU.

The list of the specs is never ending as you are also getting NFC and two SIM card slots to use. On top of all this, there is also a 3.5mm Headphone jack which is something that even the new iPhones don’t have. But yes, you can use this case with the new iPhones as well as it is available in two sizes and should perfectly well for Apple iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus. If you wish to get your hands on this, then all you have to do is, simply pledge in $129 and get it with 4G connectivity.
