Nokia Unveils 3D Printing Kit For Lumia 820 Case

Gadget lovers can now print out their very own Nokia Lumia 820 mobile phone case, as the Finnish manufacturer has released the necessary files online.

Users who have access to a 3D printer or who contact an online firm can therefore protect their handset and add a unique touch by producing their own personalised shell.

Nokia spokesperson John Kneeland said: "You want a waterproof, glow-in-the-dark phone with a bottle-opener and a solar charger? Someone can build it for you - or you can print it yourself!"

Owners of the smartphone can already get their hands on an official casing, which allows users to take advantage of wireless charging capabilities.

The accessory is available in a range of colours, so buyers can colour co-ordinate with their device's shade.

Customers can also put their stamp on this gadget by taking advantage of options through the Windows Phone 8 operating system.

Owners can design their own ideal home screen by pinning their favourite photographs, contacts, app and songs, and changing the Live Tile colours.
