Mini Media Centre Case Design Of The 1950s

The 1950s saw the birth of many things we still detest to this day, like beatniks and Communist Cuba. While this Mini Media Centre designed by British design student Thomas Thomassen looks like the tail light of a ’57 Chevy. Except this thing was actually designed in 2006. It reminds me of the Happy Days, when my buddy Fonz would ...

The holidays have come and gone but chances are, you still have a few gift cards sitting in your wallet. Speaking of your wallet, we’ve got to talk.

PC Case Mod: That’s So Tron!

This is one ill case mod. That’s slang for “well done and sexy,” which is exactly what Nick Falzone was going for with this computer case inspired by a Beijing building.

iPod Cigarette Case

This is a mod that hits close to home due to the fact that my iPod’s headphone jack died this week. Perhaps I should just gut it and turn it into a little case like this one.

Custom Louis Vuitton iPod Trunk

Fashion is an expensive business I tend to avoid. For me, some denim jeans and a t-shirt from Macy’s will suffice. For others, fashion designers like Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Chanel provide outrageously priced and strangely designed fashion wear. A price some people are willing to pay just to get attention. Louis Vuitton also makes custom one-of-a-kind cases for special ...

Tom Bihn Checkpoint Flyer Laptop Bag

In the past few years, I’ve been flying a lot more than I used to. I think I speak for everyone when I say that the TSA’s screening process is a big pain in the ass. You’ve got to take off your shoes and leave your laptop out of a bag unless it’s in a bag that doesn’t obstruct the ...
