Here’s a guy that was determined to have a unique iPod! Inspired by those photos you see where various electronic goodies are exploded so you can see all of the separate parts, this guy set out to break his iPod down into pieces and then encase them in resin so that the components could be enjoyed in their separateness in perpetuity. But wait, there’s more. The guy didn’t just want a paperweight or a conversation piece.
He still wanted his little wonder to work. And work it does. A wire sticks out of the bottom of the transparent contraption so that the device can be controlled and used and Mr. Jobs intended it. It sacrifices function, or at least portability, for the sake of form, but what a form it is. At first, the creator of this piece of functional art was frustrated because of the bubbles in the resin and he thought he had failed, but the whole thing has the pleasing look of an ice cube. And let me be the first to volunteer to drink the drink that’s big enough for that ice cube.
