Beautiful and unique iPhone 7 case designs

What does this image look like to you? The leaves of a tropical flower or the feathers of a bird maybe?  Well you’ll probably be surprised to hear that it’s neither of those but actually Hippuric Acid (otherwise known as horse wee!) captured with advanced polarized light microscopy.  This is just one of UPROSA’s beautiful and fascinating iPhone 7 case designs available now from Frequency Telecom.

UPROSA is a British brand that intrigues customers from around the globe with distinctive and beautiful fashion accessories. In late 2014, UPROSA launched a product that uses real scientific imagery to create visually stunning and completely unique mobile accessories. Now their products are available in retail outlets all over the world.

UPROSA mobile tech designs reveal the hidden world of science

The name ‘UPROSA’ was derived from ‘sub rosa’, a Latin term used by British MI6 to denote secrecy.

Captured with powerful microscopy by scientists from all over the globe, UPROSA designs reveal the hidden world of scientific beauty and the fascinating research happening in leading labs today.  In addition to showcasing their experimental designs, UPROSA also share profits with these scientists to support their ongoing research.

Experimental iPhone 7 Case Designs from UPROSA!

From soap bubbles captured with polarised light to the menacing blue pattern of Cyanide, UPROSA’s bright and vivid cases are made from 100% real scientific images. They have a gloss finish and the images fully wrap the sides of the case with a 3D print.

Here’s a selection of UPROSA’s experimental case designs for the iPhone 7.  You can see the full range of designs on the Frequency Web Shop

Amaryllis

Flower power! Captured with an unconventional light technique, this iPhone 7 case design features cells of an Amaryllis petal stained with blue dye. Amaryllis was created by bio-artist Darya Warner. To create her outstanding designs, Darya’s work combines bio-processing, living Glossyr (such as mycelium, bioluminescent algae, glowing E.coli ) and modern light sources.

Vortex

This stunning iPhone 7 case features dopamine, the chemical responsible for pleasurable feelings like love.  Vortex was created by Ingrid Parrington as part of her research. She holds a BS (field: Neuroscience) from Central Michigan University, and DO from Michigan State University.

Wunderbar

This beautiful case is designed with an image of Hippuric Acid (the horse wee one!) captured with advanced polarized light microscopy.  Wunderbar was created by Undergraduate Confocal Microscopy Assistant Teresa Zgoda from the Rochester Institute of Science and Technology.

Purple Ways

This gorgeous design case features soap bubbles captured with polarised light microscopy. Purple Ways was created by Kym Cox, a photographer and a visiting research assistant to the Foams and Complex Systems Group, School of Physics, Trinity College Dublin. Kym works with Professor Stefan Hutzler to produce a catalogue of extreme-macro imagery and video footage of the groups Ordered Cylindrical Structures research.

Plutonic Rock

This stunningly beautiful iPhone 7 case features an image of Granodiorite, a rare igneous mineral rock, captured using a polarized microscope. The rock contains the mineral quartz which can be seen in this design. The image was captured in Rochester, New York by the award-winning Professor Michael Peres from the Rochester Institute of Science and Technology.

Sorbet

Coming straight from California – this iPhone 7 case design features a microscopy image of potassium sorbate, a chemical compound which is found naturally in some berries and wines. Sorbet was created by the award-winning Carol Roullard.

Blue and Gold

This stunningly beautiful iPhone 7 case is designed with an image of citric acid taken with polarized microscopy. When dissolved in solution, the acid forms crystals which reflect light forming brilliant colours.

Blue & Gold was created by Ingrid Parrington as part of her research. Ingrid holds a BS (field: Neuroscience) from Central Michigan University, and DO from Michigan State University.

Magma

This stunningly beautiful iPhone 7 case features a photo film slide under the microscope. Magma was captured by Kevin Zupancic as part of a study on the exposure rates in film in relation to deterioration over time.

Iridescent Glass

This amazingly beautiful iPhone 7 case is designed with a real image of iridescent glass. Iridescence is the phenomenon of certain surfaces that appear to gradually change colour as the angle of view or the angle of illumination changes. The rainbow-like play of colour is caused by tiny structures on the surface of the glass reflecting light into different directions. Other examples for iridescence include soap bubbles, butterfly wings or sea shells.

Flamingo

This dazzling case was designed with the same chemical (citric acid) that makes a lemon tart and forms colliding oceanic waves when looking at it through the lens of a microscope.  Flamingo was created by Ingrid Parrington as part of her research. Ingrid holds a BS (field: Neuroscience) from Central Michigan University, and DO from Michigan State University.

All UPROSA cases are ultra slim (1mm) and feature a one-component polycarbonate shell which is durable and lightweight, protecting from bumps and scratches on the back, left, and right side.
