v5 orange front Will.i.am Adds Camera Bling to the iPhone

Call it fashion, call it technology, but most detractors of will.i.am’s new camera add-on to the iPhone are calling it far from functional, not hip, and definitely not chic.  To be fair, his detractors are in the tech space and perhaps don’t appreciate the fashion element in the singer’s approach to adding technological bling to a smart phone.  CNET described it as something “scraped off the bottom of the shoes of Liberace” and Apple-friendly “cultofmac.com” called it “something that you’ll never want to own.”

Critics aside, will.i.am is not only a musical talent, but he’s also an entrepreneur who is obsessed with technology.  He has been a vocal promoter of the STEM coalition that seeks to promote teaching science, technology, and math to American students and to encourage them to pursue these fields.

The C.4 model sells for about $320 and is a simple black design.  The white V.4 model, is priced around $475 and has added pizzazz – gold trim.  Will.i.am isn’t phased by his critics in the tech space.  He believes it provides a fundamental tech addition to the iPhone, but more importantly is a fashion statement that should be worn around the neck with pride.  He was seen at London Fashion Week sporting the V.4 around his neck at several runway shows.
