iPhone cases serve many purposes: adding a bit of unique style to your mass-produced gadget, protecting it from the elements or an accidental drop, or now, thanks to NUKLES, one that doubles as a extra layer of force. NUKLES is exactly what it sounds like; its an iPhone case that can be held the same way as a set of brass knuckles, built with 4-finger holes incorporated into the chrome, red, or gold body with a easy slide-off back. Despite its unique design, it’s still small enough to fit inside of your pocket and built with the same shock resistant features you expect to from high-qrade aircraft anodized aluminum. You can be the first on the block with a NUKLES by visiting their online store to pick one up now. Check out additional angles after the jump.
