The design shown here looks promising with a cover that gives the iPhone a “semi-rugged” protection and completely covers the device including touchscreen with a patented membrane that should still allow full functionality. The buttons are are all accessible by pass-through buttons on the case and plugs will cover up the headphone and dock ports which can be removed to utilize them without removing the entire case.
