This case snaps an Android phone to the back of your iPhone. How about that?


This case snaps an Android phone to the back of your iPhone. How about that?

WATCH | Yes. This is a thing.

If you've ever thought to yourself, “Man, bummer how my phone is just one, single phone,” then be bummed no more.

The Eye by Israeli company ESTI is a case for your iPhone that has a full-screen, all-functional Android phone on its backside. So it adds a phone to your phone. Seriously.

This is on top of the Eye being a reasonably thin case that brings protection, extra battery life and wireless charging to your iPhone.

Eye’s second screen also taps into your iPhone to provide things like additional storage -- and on-screen file management of that storage -- and a second viewfinder for taking higher quality selfies with your iPhone’s rear camera.

And since Eye adds a whole Android phone to your handset, it brings with it all the Android features that your iPhone don’t have, like Android apps, a universal remote IR blaster, NFC for tap-communication, and even a headphone jack.

The Eye phone accepts SIM cards, too, so you can hook it up to have a data plan and phone number of its own.

According to the Eye Kickstarter campaign page, total funding -- and then some -- has been reached, so we should expect the Eye to be out at the end of this summer.

You can pre-order a case for the special crowdfunding price of $95 ($129 for a 4G data-connected version) through the middle of April. It will retail at a starting price of $189.
