iPhone5Mod, the firm behind one of the first unofficial third-party Lightning accessories, has announced the launch of the Translucent Mod Kit for the iPhone 5, which lets you replace your iPhone’s black or white body with a translucent casing that exposes the innards of your device.
The kit includes translucent replacements for not only the iPhone 5’s body, but also for the SIM card tray, mute switch button, power button and the Lightning port. The material is an elastic plastic that is scratch-proof and fingerprint-resistant. The kit comes in 7 translucent colors: white, black, blue, green, pink, red and yellow. iPhone5Mod lets you choose the colors for the main body and the top and bottom panels separately, keeping in mind the iPhone 5’s existing two-toned design.
You can buy the kit for $39.90 from iPhone5Mod’s site, and for the first 48 hours, iPhone5Mod will be giving away all seven colors of the top and bottom panels with every purchase. Keep in mind that replacing the body involves removing the body of your iPhone, which would void your warranty and could also result in damage to your device.
