Kickstarter – a crowd-funding initiative designed to give those indie entrepreneurs out there who perhaps haven’t managed to secure funding from venture capitalists or banks, to put up their project for public perusal, announced that – of the 18,000 projects it made possible in 2012 – 17 managed to raise over $1 Million.

Showing the new case off at CES 2013 – (which just kicked-off in Las Vegas, Nevada) – Canopy‘s “Sensus” shell wildly claims to allow you to control your smartphone … from the back!

In addition, the case features a further 10-point sensor strip which runs along the case’s right side, allowing the shell to provide you with more fine-tuned touch control, dependent on your current usage.
