We have all tried at some stage in our lives to apply a screen protector to our smartphones delicate face preserving its pristine display for another day. Some of us have even managed to do it successfully….but the rest of us still have the air bubbles and mis-alignment to show for it!
The boys over at XGear are promising to launch a screen protector for you iPhone different to all the rest! “Crafted using state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, this one-of-a-kind screen protector keeps your device’s screen safe and untouched by scratches. XGear is proud to be the first company in the world to release a GENUINE Sapphire product to the public! Be one of the very first to receive this newest technology!”
If the demo video on Kickstarter is to be believed, the screen withstands pretty much everything, as they show even the iPhone’s display taking an impact from a hammer a number of times. Scientifically, sapphire can only be scratched by diamond, so the chances of actually marking this product is slim. Although this is meant to be one of the most protective screens on the market, it still seems to keep the high sensitivity we have all grown to love from the iPhone screen.
The screen is being Kickstarted for a hefty $60 with a $10 international shipping charge, and promises to be delivered in May 2013.
