Have you ever wanted to take a picture with your iPhone without someone knowing, but was too afraid to do so? Well now you can, thanks to the MirrorCase for the iPhone 4 and 4S.

The MirrorCase isn't just a stealthy way to snap photos, it also protects your iPhone with its plastic shell and rubber bumpers.
