    Default Epic Casings!

    I realize this belong elsewhere, but I think everyone should have a chance to see em.

    IT’S a given these days that computers come sheathed in plastic or metal, as do the keyboards, mice and monitors that accompany them. But if the industrial look leaves you cold, some companies will now encase both a computer and its peripherals in a back-to-the-future covering of a different sort: warm, glowing wood.

    Take good threads away... bad Ishy!

    Anyway, it's old and I'm sure most have seen it, but the wood Ipod should be in the collection.

    oh wow those look nice. Almost makes me want to buy one, except for the fact, that it'd probably break on me since it's made outta wood.

    Actually, you could order one made from any type of wood that is available on the market with the qualifier it be part of the recycling process.

    So You could order a computer made from good ol Cypress
