Tinbot iPod cases debut
Kollective.de today unveiled The Tinbot, a new generation of iPod cases featuring original designs from trendsetters in contemporary art. The cases aim to protect the iPod within, and feature art from vinyl toy designers Mad, Sket-one, and Christopher Lee. The company is offering a matte white Tinbot that users can customize on their own. Tinbot cases are priced at $30 and work with iPod video as well as iPod classic models.
Graphic designs also include work from DC Comic book master Jock, as well as urban artists Parra, Kurt Ketchum, and 7Sleepr.
"With a slim, sexy design, the TINBOT cases are constructed of high quality, impact-resistant tin and come equipped with headphone and charging ports. The interior is lined with neoprene padding to cushion the iPod in case of scrapes, bangs, drops, grinds, slashes or any other wear and tear that daily life dishes out."
