I am always amazed with the lengths users go to create custom cases and paraphernalia for their gadgets. The latest example of an awesome custom case is a cover Graeme created for his BlackBerry PlayBook made out of a notebook with a faux crocodile-skin like cover. They simply used one they found for $8.50 at a stationary shop and glued the edges of most of the pages with wood glue and cut out a PlayBook sized hole with a craft knife and then glued the inside of the pages.
Its truly ingenious because it is both protective and nobody will assume it is anything worth stealing. Its also kind of slick to carry it around like a notebook. It took Graeme two tries to get it right (he didn’t glue the pages the first time) but even then its one of the cheapest cases for the PlayBook if you have an hour to spend building it.
