Laptop Body Skins

262458091_6faef4d0dd38

From the website:

.................................

The ultimate in laptop skins, each design invites interaction with the spectator. The launch collection includes black tie, bikini, x-ray and T-shirt, designed at just the right perspective to make passers-by do a doubletake.

They also provide you with a quirky way of personalizing your laptop and interacting with the people around you. It's time to leap off the treadmill and "Deface" your computer today.

.................................

They had me at "leap off the treadmill."

$15.57.
