iPad mod recalls old TV

Here’s an iPad mod of questionable usefulness, but it looks nice. Artist Jonas Damon built an enclosure for his iPad that resembles an old cathode-ray television (just like grandma used to have). He only used parts he found lying around his apartment. Even the rear of the case has been built to resemble those old TV’s case design, where it bulged to accommodate those huge tubes.

Topping it all off is the video of “snow” that the iPad is playing. Of course, such a case limits the iPad’s portability to say the least, but now it’s a great video/game station. You’ll see that the dock connector cable is protruding from the back so I can still be connected to a computer for synchronization.

Someone pass the Yoo-Hoo and Little Debbie snack cakes. I want to watch a little TV.
