iPod Cases made from old 45 RPM records

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on January 23rd, 2009

iPod Cases made from old 45 RPM recordsNow here’s a case for your iPod that is actually interesting and looks unique. These cases are made from old 45s, with a plexiglass window and a cork liner. You have to love this merging of the old format with the new. It just makes sense. And looks damn good.

I love how you can line up the record label in various ways and the center hole of the record is lined up with the iPod’s scroll wheel of course. These awesome cases were made by Contexture Design, but sadly they are completely sold out of the 45 cases right now. You can see why.

Unique iPhone Applehead case from GoGoHere’s something you don’t see everyday. A stick figure with an Apple head. It’s the latest 3G iPhone case from GoGo. The Applehead iPhone Case is made from polycarbonate and is available only in white.

In case it isn’t obvious enough, it’s a scratch proof iPhone case with stick man on the back. The hole where the Apple logo goes, is his head. Kind of a symbolic representation of the Apple fanboy. No word on pricing yet, but a case like this will make you stand out from the crowd for sure.

Half-Life 2 PC case mod looks pretty awesome

Posted in Cases by Conner Flynn on January 21st, 2009

Half-Life 2 PC case mod looks pretty awesomeThis Half-Life 2 case mod is a real looker. It was created by “Geno” and was part of the “Beat This” case mod contest. What’s amazing about it, aside from it’s good looks, is that it was constructed in under two weeks… From scratch.

The custom PC is fitted with a water cooling system and three fans to keep the air circulation going and keep everything cool. It’s one of the coolest mods we’ve seen lately. His wife even got in on the action and helped with some of the modding. Which is probably a good thing, because during those two weeks that it took to build, he was also busy getting married and having a honeymoon.

Wooden MacBook case is exactly what it sounds like

Posted in MacBook by Conner Flynn on January 19th, 2009

Wooden MacBook caseThis plain looking wooden case has been designed for the MacBook and the 15 inch MacBook Pro. It is what it says it is. A wood box to put your laptop in. The tree that died so you can tote around your MacBook in style will surely thank you for it. Anyhow, carrying around a rigid wood box with your laptop inside isn’t exactly all that stylish or hip, or comfortable I would imagine. Think of the eventual splinters.

The inside is even lined with leather, so now the count is up to one dead tree and one dead cow. It’s not that I’m against wood and leather. It’s just that you, our awesome readers, deserve something better then a plain old box lined with leather. No word on pricing. I mean, what do you price a box? Boxes are everywhere. So is leather. Whatever the price, I’m sure it will be way more then it’s worth.

Wolfenstein PC case mod

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on January 16th, 2009

Wolfenstein PC case modWe love us a good case mod round these parts and the Wolfenstein case mod sure brings back memories. The FuG-01/ET aka the Wolfenstein PC Case Mod. This beauty was inspired by the Wolfenstein 3D video games of course.

It features dual electric gauges, one measures amperage, and the other core voltages. There’s also an old phone handset, which won’t make any calls to HQ, a carrying strap and some bullet holes. Creator “Sheyr” really did a Ben Heck of a job capturing the look and feel of the game.

AMD Phenom PC Case is part Transformer

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on January 13th, 2009

AMD Phenom PC Case is part TransformerThis is one of the coolest, most awesome, most jawdropping PC case mods we’ve seen in awhile. This AMD Phenom PC Case opens up in almost all directions, and looks a lot like a Transformer. It even features a green lighting scheme. Seriously, this thing looks like it’s about to take flight and fight another robot and fill your home with explosions and flying parts.

It’s got a certain classic Cylon look about it too. Look at the picture. Now look at yours. Yeah, now that you’ve seen it, you know what is missing in your life. It was created by Bill Owen, who is a true genius among men. We are not worthy.

Xbox 360 shoved into a PS3 case

Xbox 360 shoved into a PS3 caseLast night we told you about the Wii winning the console wars this holiday season. The Xbox 360 did well too. But nobody wanted the poor PS3. There’s apparently at least one modder who the likes the PS3. The outside of it anyway.

This modder shoved an Xbox 360 into a PS3 case. It wasn’t a perfect fit, with a large hole cut into the front to allow access to the tray. It’s for those gamers who can’t make up their mind and love both consoles along with some neon.

Clear iPhone case makes your 3G naked

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on December 28th, 2008

Clear iPhone case makes your 3G nakedSome things are good clear. Water, windows. Some things not so much. Wonder Woman’s plane comes to mind as well as this clear iPhone 3G case. We don’t have a problem with clear cases, but the guts inside have to look cool, otherwise what’s the point?

You’re either gonna love it or hate it. Yes, it’s missing the camera and some other stuff. The case is manufactured by a company in Russia. It’s not a bad idea as you will definitely want to stand out from the rest of the black iPhone using world, but damn the inside of an iPhone is fugly.

iPhone gets Xenon flash from Snapture

Posted in Accessories by Shane McGlaun on December 24th, 2008

Snapture iPhone FlashI have tried on a few occasions to take pictures with my iPhone. It seems that no matter how brightly lit the room is, the camera simply can’t take a shot that’s not dark and grainy. Many other high-end camera phones offer a built-in flash, but so far, Apple has not added that feature.

Snapture offers editing software designed to run on the iPhone and it has now announced a new polycarbonate case that not only protects the iPhone from damage, but also adds a bright Xenon powered flash.

iPhone nano case appears

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on December 15th, 2008

iPhone nano case appearsWe probably shouldn’t be basing predictions for important new Apple products on protective case mockups from China. Even so, things like this have revealed the truth in the past. iDealsChina is reporting that XSKN is working on a silicone skin for the upcoming “Nano iPhone” a shorter, chubbier version of the iPhone 3G.

According to iDealsChina sources, the phone will feature EDGE data, but otherwise is pretty identical in specs to its predecessors. Well, it has a smaller screen. According to them, Apple plans to sell tons of these for low prices in places like Walmart, and that the company will be unveiling the new handset in January during Macworld.

Star Wars Nintendo Wii Case Mod

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on December 14th, 2008

Star Wars Nintendo Wii Case ModIt’s been awhile since we saw a really cool Wii case mod, though we did bring you 14 neat mods some time ago. This custom Star Wars case mod is pretty awesome and you can learn to make one too. Just be warned that the creator invested over 100 hours of work.

It includes lots of LEDs and fiber optics to give it some nice glowing effects. If you’d rather buy one and not put in the time, you can find this gem on ebay for $499.99. It features stars that fade in and out, custom Red Light Bar, and a hand Painted Death Star, X-Wing and Darth Vader’s Tie-Fighter. Pretty sweet.

U-Suit Case turns your Macbook Air into a Dell

Posted in MacBook by Conner Flynn on December 3rd, 2008

U-Suit Case turns your Macbook Air into a DellI’m not sure why on Earth you would want to, but the U-Suit Case makes your Macbook Air look a lot like a Dell. Most users who love their Macbook Air, probably aren’t very fond of the Dell Inspiron. But should you happen to love both, the U-Suit Premium from Uniea will let you rock both worlds.

Just slip the case made of napa leather on to your Macbook Air. It comes in black and red and is scratch resistant and impact resistant. The detailing is really nice and your laptop will be quite a conversation piece since it can’t make up it’s mind. Is it a Mac or a Dell?

Tire Tread iPhone 3G case

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on December 2nd, 2008

Tire Tread iPhone 3G caseHere’s an iPhone case that’s a bit different. If you’re in the market for a case for your iPhone 3G, but you “tire” from the search, this may be for you. The Case-Mate Vroom Tire Tread Pattern Case features 100% impact resistant rubber and it’s only $15.

Its rubber case can protect your expensive phone by cushioning the blow of impact of course. But there’s an unseen danger most users ignore. What if…Just what if it slipped from your gadget loving hand? The tire tread pattern will prevent iPhone hand slippage and at the same time send others a message. Presumably, “Don’t tread on me.”

Silicone Touch: An iPhone case for the blind

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on December 1st, 2008

Silicone Touch: An iPhone case for the blindThe iPhone has never really been a friendly device for the blind, so this case designed by Bruno Fosi is fairly impressive. The Silicone Touch covers the iPhone’s screen and features a selection of bas-relief buttons that correspond to menu items in a custom app.

This lets the visually impaired access all of the phone’s functions, even multi-touch and finger flick scrolling. None of the phone’s functions are compromised. It’s just a concept at the moment, but this is one that we hope will see the light of day very soon.

iPod Cigarette Case for smokin’ tunes

Posted in iPod by Conner Flynn on November 21st, 2008

iPod Cigarette Case for smokin’ tunesHere’s a little something for smokers who love their gadgets. If you have a spare iPod laying around, you too can be very James Bond like and turn it into a cigarette case.

Basically, just remove the guts and replace said guts with butts. Makes a great conversation piece and your be the life of any party. It can be a secret compartment for anything small, not just cigs. This person came up with the idea when their iPod had an encounter with the pavement and died.
