wood ipod

wooden ipod by josh d

josh d from australia has taken apart an ipod mini unit and rebuilt the case using nothing but natural wood and screws. the design uses no glue and the click wheel is attached to the sensor via double sided tape.

  • If they sold theses as kits I think folks would purchase them. I would!

    Can you discuss the brass plates?

  • There is no point to this, it is just another gimmick. What foolish people you are who have fallen for yet another stupid idea!

  • Oh dear: it’s IRONIC!!!! Duh!
    Bizarre, sad, but predictable that some people ask “Why?”.
    Think of recreating Stonehenge from recycled plastic, or sculpting a Bugatti Veyron from pasta… this is not particularly athletic, conceptually speaking, but nonetheless proves too challenging for some who consider themselves party to a design sensibility. *sigh*
    Thank you Josh D for demonstrating a delightfully Australian larrikin sense of humour. Sorry to the humourless denizens of elsewhere who “just don’t get it”.

  • No… the wood is treated

  • Can termites eat that?
