If you're unhappy with the selection of iPhone cases at your local mall kiosk, maybe you'd prefer to grab a magazine or a personal photo and turn it into a one-of-a-kind accessory. That's the idea behind Case Maker Pro, a gadget that slices any photo to perfectly fit an iPhone 5 or 5s. Using the included clear plastic case and a piece of lamination film, the image gets some protection and security while being strapped to the back of your device.
Case Maker Pro currently has an Indiegogo campaign, but it's a flexible funding effort, so if you pay the $49.00US for the unit, you'll receive it regardless of whether or not the campaign actually reaches its goal. According to its creators, the current prices will double once the Maker hits retail, so if you just have to turn magazine covers into iPhone cases, it might be worth jumping in early.
For those of you who really can't wait, consider a similar product that's already on the market and has overcome some early issues: the frām case reviewed by TUAW in early 2013.
