You know what your smartphone needs? It needs a new way to push your all-important notifications. Notifications are, in a way, an app’s bread and butter. The more efficiently they can push your crucial notifications the more efficient that app, depending.

Enter Endliss and their disco-themed, LED-laden protective case for iPhone 5. The Endliss Smartcase is stylish, yet familiar from the front. Turn it around and it’s platform shoes and strobe light time. The LED lights on the back make for a completely new way to receive those notifications. The LED lights can even form shapes and images, further expanding the way you get your alerts and “dings”. Endliss promises the Smartcase will play patty-cake with Facebook, Twitter, text messages, incoming calls and emails, with different notification options for each.

The secret tech is not so much so. The Smartcase speaks to your iPhone 5 via Bluetooth 4.0 and can even patch into your phone’s time-keeping app to display the time in LED-illuminated sorcery. The Smartcase is also supplied with its own 12500 mAh battery, which even extends the battery life of  your iPhone.

Pricing TBD
