American recording artist, songwriter and entrepreneur, Will.i.am, is indeed one of the most recognized faces in pop culture today. Hailing from the Black Eyed Peas crew, Will.i.am recently launched a new accessory for iPhones that turns the not-so-simple smartphone into a shutterbug-pleasing mobile camera! Called the “i.am+” accessory, this one works with both, the iPhone 4 as well as the 4S. An iPhone 5 compatible i.am+ hasn’t been announced for now. Unveiled in London, the add-on gives your iPhone a wide-angle lens, allowing photography-loving iPhone users to make the most out of their cameras. Also, unlike most iPhone accessories, the i.am+ manages to retain its exclusivity due to its pricing.
While the C.4 “contemporary” version is priced at £199 ($320), the V.4 “vintage” comes for £299 ($480) and includes a slide-out keyboard. Both of these models use the existing iPhone camera and sport interchangeable lenses for standard, fish-eye, and zoom functions.
And if all of that isn’t all, Will.i.am has also pulled out the all-black V.5 from his bag of tricks. This model packs its own 14-megapixel sensor and 5x zoom giving you an unmatched picture-taking experience from your iPhone!
