This crazy iPhone 13 case catapults hard candy at your face

The finished outcome works remarkably well as a candy weapon, however as Benedetto notes, its a “chonky case.” Its certainly not one that will slide quickly into your trousers, or perhaps a loose-fitting coat. Its pretty darn cool.

iPhone 13 might be a great upgrade over its predecessors, with improved electronic cameras and much better battery life, but theres one glaring omission from its list of functions: It can not fire candy. This crazy case solves that apparent defect.
Created and 3D printed by Matty Benedetto, the Candy Catapult Case brings an assortment of tough candy in its back that can be quickly (and alarmingly?) fired into your mouth whenever you need sweet nourishment.

He started out printing a case from a versatile TPU filament that would quickly snap onto his iPhone 13 Pro and protect it from scratches and drops. Whats so special about that in a world filled with TPU smartphone cases? Its certainly not one that will move quickly into your trousers, or even a loose-fitting coat.

So, Benedetto took that case and married it with sweet container that includes a spring-loaded firing mechanism– a lot like those found inside pinball makers. The container can be filled with small, difficult treats that are catapulted out of the top of the case and into your mouth … or teeth … or eyes.

Keep an eye out! This iPhone 13 case fires sweet treats
Benedetto wasnt planning to construct a weapon when he set out to create his own iPhone 13 case. He just required something robust that would keep his device from catching the same fate as its predecessor, which fell from a second-story window onto the pavement below to meet its shattered end.
He began printing a case from a flexible TPU filament that would quickly snap onto his iPhone 13 Pro and protect it from scratches and drops. Whats so unique about that in a world filled with TPU smartphone cases? Specifically for a guy who owns a YouTube channel dedicated to Unnecessary Inventions.
