There is now a new reason to own an iPhone 5, courtesy of the Brick Lightning Cap. This cap plugs into the power port of your iPhone 5 and allows you to attach LEGO bricks and minifigs to it. That's right, you can now build onto your iPhone 5. The connector was built by KB, a Taiwanese designer with an obvious affinity for LEGO.
At first the Brick Lightning Cap may not sound all that functional. That being said, there are a lot of things that can be built with LEGO, including smartphone stands and cases. Attaching a minifig to your phone is also a fun way to customize it, sort of like cellphone charms used to be. The Brick Lightning Cap will drop in August and sell for $3.50.
