Brando, an electronics and mobile accessory retailer, have launched a unique protective casing for the Samsung Galaxy S4. The case features an Iron Man 3 design, but also makes use of NFC to add an extra dimension of novelty to the accessory.

The Iron Man Beam Case is able to detect when an NFC connection is established, whether by scanning a passive tag or tapping another NFC-enabled smart device for data exchange. When this happens, lights in the back of the case are activated, allowing Iron Man's eyes and Arc Reactor to glow. A video demonstration is below.

The case costs $39, though it is not clear whether it is official MARVEL merchandise.
