LAS VEGAS -- There are bazillion different types of iPhone cases out here, and a company here wants to help people make their very own right from their iPhone.

Sculpteo, who is presenting at CES Unveiled, is in the 3D printing business and has a product that lets people design and create an iPhone case that captures 3D depth from photos they've taken.

On display here are a number of options, from cutouts of people's silhouettes, to the faux stitched Apple logo seen above. The company says it can even tweak the texture to give objects a soft, leather-like feel.

The cases run $24 a pop and can be designed and ordered from the company's app for the iPhone and iPad.
