FORT COLLINS, Colo., Nov. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- A new innovation from OtterBox and PopSockets was among an elite group of products honored by TIME in the publication's 2019 Best Inventions roundup.
OtterBox Otter + Pop cases were selected as a special mention in the annual competition of the year's most innovative new products. TIME's evaluation takes into account key factors, such as originality, creativity, influence, ambition and effectiveness.
First introduced in early 2019, the product was born from a collaboration between OtterBox, the No. 1-selling smartphone case in the US, and PopSockets, the innovator of the now-ubiquitous PopGrip.1
Otter + Pop features an OtterBox case with an integrated PopGrip. The PopGrip is recessed into the case, so it sits flush when not extended for use. Additionally, the PopTop is swappable, making the case endlessly customizable. Otter + Pop makes a great holiday gift, with a case for under the tree and a stocking stuffed with PopTops.
OtterBox innovates bold products that deliver confidence and trust in any pursuit. From its humble beginnings with a drybox in a Fort Collins, Colo., garage, OtterBox has honed and leveraged its expertise in manufacturing and design to become the No. 1-selling smartphone case brand in the U.S. and a leader in rugged outdoor lifestyle products.1
At the center of every OtterBox innovation is a deeper goal to effect positive, lasting change. In partnership with the OtterCares Foundation, OtterBox grows to give back by inspiring kids to change the world through entrepreneurship and philanthropy.
