Redditor u/flashnet needed an Apple Pencil case, so they made one themselves using a 3D printer. They tried existing designs but ran into trouble with the magnets it used. So this one—called iCICLE—screws together. There are plenty of Apple Pencil sleeves on the market, including ones that Apple sells. But the cases I’ve seen are bulky, and they would take up a lot of space in your bag. The iCICLE is slim and has a minimal design that Jony Ive would be proud of. In fact, it was inspired by Johnny, the Apple Pencil case on Indiegogo. Unfortunately the product didn’t get fully funded. The iCICLE is a close approximation, and if you happen to have a 3D printer, you can download the files on Thingiverse.

There are plenty of great iPhone accessories to choose from, but we think some stood out this year more than others.
Creator Mike von Rotz made an Apple Watch stand inspired by Thing from The Addams Family. As fans know, Thing is a disembodied hand that crawls around and performs various services for the family. It started when Mike found a free hand model from TurboSquid. He then configured it using Autodesk Maya to move it into the correct position. Printing it took about 19 hours, and the final model stands 6.6 inches (17 cm). You can find a free file on Thingiverse. It’s just a simple, plain white hand, but if you’re good at painting you can customize it to your liking.
