    I'm waiting for someone to build one into body armour. (It'd go well with the AK-MP3)

    iWood?
    that just sounds kinda dirty. or maybe that's lack of sleep getting to me again.

    looks cool though, even if it rather takes away from the fits-in-the-pocket aspect a bit.

    Sure, but given how they're rammed into trains like sardines (if media footage is to be believed), it seems a sensible precaution. But I'm sure so would a plastic hardcase and an inside jacket pocket... but it wouldn't look as l33t as this ^_^

    If he dropped the bulletproof case, his IPOD would die of hard metal impact. I didn't seen any cushion inside the plate lol

    I'd be tempted to call it the 'full metal jacket' - or if you want an apple style name iSore - because lets face it - that thing is ugly - Why not just make a 2mm titanium shell and cushion the inside for shock/crush absorbance...all the protection and more at about a 10th of the weight.

    I actually quite like it, if only for the sheer overkill of the design.

    yeah that would be awesome. It would be cool to have a chromed front to match the stock iPod back.

    o/t God bless your avatar.

    and spend even more money on crap when they need boots and other equipment that wont melt. Yea, ring up Blair, its a winner!!

    I liked the shuffle, but not the other. If someone could make an ipod shell to replace the existing one, i'd buy it.
