CES 2013: Canopy brings touch controls in new case

1:08 /

A new case for iPhone lets you swipe and touch to control your iPhone on the side and back.

-Hi. I'm Bridget Carey with CNET here at CES 2013. At a show like this, you'll see a lot of cases. They don't see cases like this. This is a touch sensitive case, on the back and on the right side. Like a canopy, this is the senses and you can have certain applications on this that when you scroll by simply rubbing your finger to the side or imagine playing a game and you can use all 10 fingers on the back to control your game instead of touching on the screen. This company is working with making a lot of different types of applications to use with touch even Braille. There's an app in here that if you tap in a certain way, you can start typing in Braille and they'll talk back to you. There's also a camera app where you will take a picture just by touching the side of your case. Now, this is a product that isn't out yet. They're hoping it'll be out by the summer and you expect to pay less than $100 for this. For CNET, I'm Bridget Carey here at CES 2013 with your first look at the senses the canopy.
