Remember mood rings? They were one of the coolest things you could have when you were a kid. What could be even cooler and cater to adults? AnoStyle, a new service, allows iOS phone users to change the color of their phone at will...kind of like a mood ring for adults. The service will anodize your device into the color of your choosing, and you can decide to change the color as many times as you want. The anodization process used is a specialized chemical process that creates the desired color just for you. All you have to do is send in your phone and in 1-2 weeks, it'll come back colorful and better than ever. Best of all, unlike paint or wrap services, the color will not fade or chip over time. And hey, even Kim Kardashian is a fan!
