iPhone Running Android

Programmer Nick Lee, known for putting Windows 95 on an Apple Watch, unveils his latest project: a 3D-printed iPhone case that lets you run a fully-operational version of Android on an iPhone. First, he cloned the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) to make a custom Android Marshmallow build to run on a board he purchased. He then 3D printed an iPhone-sized enclosure, and proceeded to install the board, battery, resistor, along with a boost converter to make the lightweight case you see above. That's not all, HDMI, USB ports, and an SD card slot was added to finish things off. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

iPhone 6 Prototype

Another year, another iPhone prototype surfaces on eBay. This time, it's an iPhone 6 prototype running Apple's 'SwitchBoard' software, which is used by testers, and disables the calling as well as camera functions. Plus, it has the rare red lightning connector, only found on test units. "I bought this item from a friend of mine, it is a iPhone 6 prototype, it has no FCC logos, Serial Number or Imei. From what I know it runs a debugging OS called SwitchBoard and features a red lightning dock port with a serial number of C39NW00KG876," said the seller. Unfortunately, once bidding reached $53,000, the listing was taken down by the auction site. Continue reading for more pictures and information.

iPhone Catches Fire

Anna Crail flying to Honolulu on Alaskan Air for spring break, and decided to watch The Martian when her smartphone suddenly caught on fire. She immediately dropped the handset and it went underneath a seat while passengers scrambled to the aisles before flight attendants extinguished the fire. "All of the sudden there was like 8-inch flames coming out of my phone.

Featuring a 5-inch front display, liquid metal chassis, 16.0-megapixel rear camera, and to top it off, another 5-inch display in the back, so notifications don't clutter up your home screen.
