Put Grip Tape on Your iPhone to Never Let It Slip Again

If you're annoyed of your iPhone slipping out of your hands, here's an idea: replace the glass back with skateboard grip tape. Sure it might char up your hands but it'll never ever slip again!

Jokes and scratchiness aside, I think it actually looks pretty awesome. It's clean but still full of character. The guy who made this actually made the grip tape iPhone out of necessity, as he dropped his iPhone, breaking its back. He tried other materials first (silicone, sandpaper, etc) but eventually settled on grip tape.

Wow what a great idea, and you can carve a design into it if you want to customize it.

I thought someone put sand paper on their phone. It does look cool though.

I think there are better things to use, but maybe this would be a great idea for skateboarders...
