A Wooden Case That Turns Your iPad Mini Into A 1950s Television Set
This case from Jeffrey Stephenson transforms your iPad Mini into a retro TV set, from DesignTAXI.
Modeled after retro television sets, the ‘DuMont’ is made of birch plywood with a semi-gloss lacquer finish and comes with a speaker grille. It contains an opening that fits a Jawbone Jambox, and speaker controls are accessed from the bottom. Simply slot the iPad Mini into the side of the case to relive the nostalgia of a bygone era.
The ‘Dumont’ isn’t for sale but interested parties can contact Stephenson directly. For more information on how he created the case, visit the Bit-Tech forums to view the project work log.
