There is sufficient innovative technology packed into smartphones these days that enables them to perform far more fascinating tasks than you might imagine. The AVA Smart Shell demonstrates the extension of these cutting-edge features into an iPhone case that lets you simply shift your handset to communicate commands, rather than browse the touchscreen interface.

The shallow pyramidal backing of the cellphone protector comes to a point to make four triangular faces. Leaning your device to any one of these sides will activate a different function. Germain Verbrackel's AVA Smart Shell will switch your smartphone into Busy, Away, Available and No Not Disturb statuses on your social media apps, depending on how you rest it on the table.
