Japan may well be one of the biggest importers of timber, diligently decimating the world’s remaining rainforests, but in this more ecologically aware era, it’s nice to know that efforts are being made to at least use the wood more sensibly — these rather unusual iPod cases produced by Japanese company Asuka Koubou attempting to savvily save the environment by using up the scraps.
Cleverly combining ecological concern and cool.
Or at least the former, as covering the iPod’s sleek contours with a piece of wood makes it look not too dissimilar to grandma’s old transistor radio — albeit a bit smaller.
Although that said, they are apparently very popular, so it just goes to show how much I know.
I love touching wood.
Seriously though, it looks like an I-Pod from The Flintstones.
i-Pods have passed me by. I have no need for one, see. Plus, I am getting mighty sick of those Apple ads with Mitchell and Webb; I’m a PC and I’m a Mac. I don’t need condescending bullshit from Apple. I’m fully aware of the limitations of the Windows based PC and equally aware of the failings of the Mac, having both of them in the workplace. I probably will never buy an iPod just because of those adverts.
Wow. That’s pretty damn cool.
Paul – do you feel better now?
ive never seen something as ridiculous,
