iPod Armor


Foam–lined metal iPod case (above and below)


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)


of the great sculptor.
