iPatch, a third-party iPhone repair company based in the UK, has come up with this iPhone modification that puts a backlight behind the Apple logo on the back of the iPhone 4.

Chris and Andy, the guys behind iPatch, expect the mod to retail for under £100, and a turnaround time of less than an hour. They claim the iPhone remains fully functional, with the rear glass appearing completely original with no visible alterations. The logo lights up whenever the iPhone's screen is on.

They probably just remove the silvering

Like converting a mirror into a window. The Apple appears to be backed with some "silvering." Take it off and the backlight for the LCD screen shines through nice and bright when the screen is on. No extra hardware needed.

Tie it to notifications and you got yourself a winner.

As it is, it is just a light that is always on.
