    By the time you spend the money on the necessary CAD and CNC design and have the necessary molds made, you will have to sell a LOT of these housings to even break even

    Not to mention that would be an expensive housing and a swap takes completely disassembling the phone, would be a small market.

    Another thing that makes the market smaller yet? Most people use cases anyway, so there's no point in it for most people!!

    Haha true, I'd use it but then the first thing I would want to do is cover it up to protect it

    Lol so I was thinking the whole day and end up buying the cf cloth and s chemicals lol, so expect the cf iPhone by the next week, Ive got cad project for Cnc done before, well and to take completely apart my iPhone is not a big deal I do it at least once in a week. So expect cf iPhone soon

    By the way if I'll get it to work I'll make sure it's scratch proofed, so there's no need for extra case

    If I was only worried about scratches I would just use the full body invisible shield. I use a case to help prevent internal damage if it gets dropped!!!

    Oh lol but like how u can possible damage anything inside except the screen? There's no hdd, the mb is on 7 screws so it's tight, and the rest is just like ribbons. So I don't believe that if u drop the iPhone even from 5th floor anything will happen to it lmfao.

    Well, once you get your carbon fiber shell done make sure to make a video of your 5 story drop test

    or not

    pics would be nice though

    Maybe I'll work on a shell made of Roquefort cheese, that would be cool, and you'd always have a snack if you got stranded ?!

    Making a real carbon fiber housing for the iPhone would turn it into an iPod touch

    Carbon Fiber is used to block radio waves.
