Piping hot cases...

Nothing radical, but this is what I'd like in a case. Black leather, a little color, a slim tension clip on the back.

Yes i rather like that design too! I wouldnt be so keen on the outer trim (though it looks well on the screen and wheel), but i think the texture looks fantastic!

The design is fantastic and I love it. What about some different colors since a white with the pipping will look great with the white Nano. Excellent idea.

Very nice.
Here is to hoping you can get it to production.

i'm sorry but this is by far one of the best cases i've seen out there!! i'd want one for my 40gb one and my shuffle! but...as a design feature i'd like the 40gb one to have a flip bottom. lajo to the best of my knowledge is the only smart one to ever do this. as someone who uses the ipod in my car in a dock, this is crucial.

The same is true for me:

That kicks ###, great work.

However I'm anal about ipod cases and I always want to get something to protect the screen and clickwheel as well.

Maybe to add to your concept a very thin, transparent naylon over the clickwheel, and have it come with a screen protector.

I don't think there's much point for a belt clip for a nano.

Other then that, what you did is just about the perfect nano case.

marvin42 has the right idea, thin cover over the clickwheel but if not that, at the very least a screen protector.

that design is awesome and i'd definitely pay for one. however, it must be thin..

Is there a "designer's thread"? Not just for future iPods, but for concepts also. That way I don't have to keep searching for mcdj's designs :-)

Yes, I'm that lazy.

Oh, and superb case mcdj...I would definitely use it--especially if there were protections for the screen and wheels.

Perhaps a different case with a loop attached for lanyard purposes too--with the same design concept.

You're cool.

Wow. A case that makes me want to ditch my white nano and get a black!!! Fantastic design - I love the orange and lime pipes. I'd buy!
