We’ve rounded up ones that are strikingly beautiful, awesomely inventive, and even ones perfect for the maker in your life. But now, a breed of insanely wacky phone covers has, for better or worse, caught our eye: the 3D smartphone case. Yep, apparently it’s a thing. And it’s turned phone cases from practical scuff-busting armor into something hyper conceptual.
