The 10 Craziest Phone Cases We've Ever Seen

Smartphones are more popular than ever, and it’s never been easier to find a phone case that matches your personality.

While most people buy cases to protect their devices from falls and scratches, that’s old news. Cases nowadays can do far more.

From phone cases that protect you with built-in tasers and pepper spray to creepy cases that make it look like a giant Isopod is latched onto your head, you can now choose between the practical, uncanny, and downright weird when you’re picking out a case.

Turn your iPhone into a taser with the Yellow Jacket case

The Yellow Jacket case ($149) bundles a detachable stun gun to your iPhone, keeping both you and your phone safe. You don't have to worry about accidental shocks thanks to a swiveling electrode cap, and you need to push both triggers at the same time for the stun gun to work.

If you prefer pepper spray to tasers, check out Spraytect's pepper spray case

The Spraytect pepper spray case ($39.95) features a quick 3-step system for deploying pepper spray from the back of your phone case. You simply slide the cartridge to the side, rotate it so the nozzle is facing outwards, and then you're all set to spray.

Turn your phone into a tool box with the Task One G3 case

The Task One G3 ($99) gives you access to 22 stainless steel tools at a moment's notice. There's blades, pliers, Allen wrenches, wire strippers, screwdrivers, and a ruler -- just to name a few.

See your notifications before your phone displays them with the Lunecase

The Lunecase ($49) converts your phone's electromagnetic waves into energy, so it doesn't take any power from your phone. The case can actually sense incoming calls and messages before they pop up on your screen, and you can see your notifications first with the Lunecase's rear light.

Turn your phone into a thermal imaging device with the Flir One

The Flir One ($349) uses an infared camera to let you see thermal images with your iPhone 5 or iPhone 5S. The case can help you see where the water stops flowing in the pipes of a clogged sink, or you can use it when camping to check when the coals from your campfire have cooled.

Dressier Perfume Bottle case for iPhone 5S

Who doesn't want to live a life of opulence by talking into a perfume bottle? Dressier's flashy perfume bottle case ($10.99) for the iPhone 5S is 'created from the good materials to protect your phone in style' and even includes a chain.

Hold a hand while holding your phone with Dokkiri Hand Case

The Dokkiri Hand Case ($48.70) is both unsettling and impractical (you have to remove the case to take a picture). It's basically just a rubber hand glued to a phone case, and while it may be creepy, it's actually sold out at the moment.

Plug your phone right into an outlet with the Prong PWR case

The Prong PWR Case ($65) features integrated power prongs so you never have to worry about forgetting your charging cable. When you're not charging, the prongs fold outwards to stow away in the rear of the battery pack.

Never search for a bottle opener again with the Opena case

There are plenty of phone cases that can open bottles, but the Opena ($19.95) features a slim design that hides your bottle opener until you need it.
