This is one of those things that everybody probably should have thought of well before now, and yet, nobody ever did.  You’ve seen the cardboard iPod case…now try the case made from old comics.

If you take some old comics, or even old magazines or newspapers, some masking tape, and a pair of scissors, you can cut your used newsprint into the shape of an iPod case and essentially slip it right over the iPod itself.  It’s not damage resistant or shock resistant or even water resistant, but it definitely does look cool, as evidenced by the above photo.

Plus you can get some serious green cred for recycling, AND some coordinated guy cred for making your own iPod case out of whatever was lying around.  That’s awesome no matter how you put it.
