Some people wouldn't leave home without a Swiss Army knife boasting an impressive array of tools. However, with the IN1 iPhone case they could perhaps ditch their multi-tool of choice and just make sure to keep their smartphone close at hand at all times.

The IN1 iPhone case not only protects your iPhone but also incorporates a range of tools designed to help in times of need. These include a kickstand, blue and red pens, Phillips and flathead screwdrivers, a nail file, tweezers, scissors, and a toothpick.

The tools are all compliant with current TSA rules, which means you can, in theory at least, take this on commercial flights. This is why there isn't a blade included, which would obviously be a prerequisite on any traditional Swiss Army knife.

The case will fit the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s, and is made from polycarbonate with a felt interior to keep your smartphone snug.

The case comes in black, white and clear, while the tools come in black, white, blue, green, orange and pink. Each case can be customized when ordering to ensure you get the combination that best suits you.

The IN1 iPhone case costs US$44.95, and the video below shows it off from various different angles.

A kickstand? You open it with your foot?

I dont think it will get past TSA at the airport. The concept is interesting but I like my Otter Box case.

Come on, no blade? No bottle opener? There's no way I'll ditch my swiss knife for something like this.

I would assume their intentions behind not using the a knife was to keep their product in compliance with the TSA Rules & Regulations http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/prohibited-items I also don't think their intentions were to get anyone to ditch their current Swiss-Army Knife but more to develop a case for everyday use and functionality. Does your Swiss-Army Knife have a Red or Blue Pen? Tweezers? Nail File? How about does your Swiss-Army Knife have a stand to allow you to watch Netflix while you eat during your lunch break from work without having to balance with one hand while you eat and hold the phone? I would probably assume NO, so with regards to that I think this case really will be beneficial to the person living the everyday life and would help lighten up a few pockets full of stuff into a all in 1 case for the everyday person.
