Yoori Koo’s Elasty iPhone 4 Case

Belkin doesn’t make this Belkin-branded iPhone case, but it should do. It’s a concept design from Yoori Koo, and is the functional equivalent of wrapping a couple of rubber bands around your phone, only it doesn’t obscure the display.

Koo’s Elasty case is much like any other bumper-with-a-back style case, encasing the iPhone’s squared-off body in a silicone shroud. The difference comes in a set of four thin strips formed by slits in the rubber. These pull away and let you tuck in cash, cables, cards and even pens. Anything that can be squeezed behind a loop can be carried.

Larger items are of course impractical, but once they get really big, the relationship changes and you can hang the phone em on them. Otherwise, tucking in your beer money or your wound-up earbuds is a great idea.

According to Radhika Seth of Yanko Design, Koo’s design has actually won a “Korean Belkin Design Award,” so maybe we’ll see it on stores sooner or later.
