iPod Armor

from Matias, creator of the fantabulous Matias keyboard where my fingers spend many happy hours every day whipping up this tasty stew/witch's brew.

Jeffrey Ressner wrote in Time magazine, "The Schwarzenegger of the bunch is iPod Armor. Ideal for skateboarders, snowboarders and other sports enthusiasts who tend to fall down a lot."

Ha — plenty of joeheads wouldn't go near a board sport but manage to fall down plenty. But I digress.

There's also an iPod mini version, now available in two versions: with an aluminum front panel (below)

or a clear ABS plastic front (below).

Full–size iPod Armor costs $39.95 and the iPod mini iterations are $24.95 here.

Whoever designed the original iPod Armor (second photo down in this post) must've been channeling Rachel Whiteread: when I first came upon the device I did a double–take, so evocative is it of the eerie work (below)
