Dog & Bone Backbone
product + engineering + Production
Designed and developed in Australia by Design + Industry, the Backbone combines the freedom of a unique wireless charging platform with a series of interchangeable, ruggedised and distinctively styled casings.
The clean, simple charge pad design provides a minimal desk foot print to easily land your phone on, promptly charging on/off every time you replace your phone.
With the Backbone, the technology is not restricted to one standard casing design — the wireless module can be interchanged with a range of 3 casings designs in 5 colours, allowing you to personalise your own style.
Apple approved quality
Created to meet Apple MFi requirements and with a worldwide patent, the Backbone is built to exacting standards. The design allows complete user access to the functionality of the iPhone, without any reduction in sound quality or antenna reception. The custom developed induction charge circuit provides wireless charge rates as fast as direct cable charging. On-the-go connectivity is provided by an auxiliary Mirco USB, providing complete mobile flexibility without the need to ever remove the casing.
The Backbone functionality is contained in a cleverly minimised envelope, comparable in thickness to any other standard protective phone casing. Great lengths were taken by the product design and engineering teams to optimise each part — achieving a design that is both slim and sleek, as well as providing the protection and build quality demanded.
