A while back when writing about my Kickstarter happiness rating being 40%, I mentioned I was hopeful for the future and listed projects I had backed which had not shipped, among which was the iCache Geode. I described it thusly:
Geode from iCache is a dream I’ve had for years, potentially fulfilled at long last. If this thing works as well as they depict it, goodbye wallet.
Three months later and the Geode is in my hands. It was with great excitement that I unpackaged, configured and crammed my phone into it today and then I headed out into the world to see if it could truly replace my wallet. Unfortunately, my results were less than stellar. The iCache Geode is a great idea and a decently made product that simply doesn’t deliver on its concept. That, and it might just be a hugely dangerous object to be selling to the public.
