The case is altered: enter the (Dot) Matrix
HTC’s rather clever take on the phone case is covered in small perforations, which turn your notifications into glowing 8-bit-like retro missives. Best viewed in low light, the Dot Matrix accessory beams pixelated message, battery, weather and call alerts through the cover while the handset maintains a low power state. You don’t even have to open it to answer, either, as the phone’s accelerometer means a simple lift accepts the call. It’s available at launch, although no word on price yet.
