Storing your car in a garage will keep your vehicle free of dirt and blemishes, especially when the neighbor’s kid comes home at 4am racing down the street and side swiping every car in his path.  Perhaps this was the impetus behind TopKase’s Aegis case?

The TopKase Aegis case is crafted from an inner metallic plated sub frame, so it only adds a reported 1.3oz to your handset’s overall weight.  But the real take away of this case is its sliding metal door, similar to what else, a garage door.  Slide it open when you need to make or take a call, or surf the web.  Conversely, slide it closed when you storing your iPhone in your bag, or any place keys or other sharp objects might attempt to lick at your iPhone’s touchscreen.  According to TopKase it will only ad .19-inches of thickness to your iPhone.  However, keep in mind your iPhone 4s only measures .37-inches thick, so we’re talking about a 50% increase in overall bulk in your pocket.  Perhaps you’d like to know that the door has been lined with a microfiber, so in theory every time you open and close it you’re cleaning the phone’s screen, freeing it of fingerprints and other debris.  They’ve also included 8 internal shock absorbers.  TopKase is also marketing the case as a sound enhancer, though clearly the the sliding door mechanism is the only reason we’re even posting on it.

The TopKase Aegis case sells for $60 and comes in a variety of colors.
