It wasn’t [Ben Heck] this time. [Owen] sent in his modded iPod. Once the warranty was voided by some breakage, he decided to make sure it was *really* void. The fold is limited by the length of the wires – but I can’t tell from the description or pictures if he actually hinged it.
Update: I’m re-posting this thanks to some funky cms bug…

Hah, quite pointless but a good time waster and trick to show off to friends. Maybe it could be orientated like a portable dvd player watching video clips?
“Yes, by breaking it I void my warranty.”
That’s right, manufacturer’s warranties do /not/ cover accidents. :)
ew, it reminds me of the apple ibook
It’d be nice to have a picture from behind. OF the iTop I mean.
It is hinged, but at the moment it’s all glued down, I’m going to work on the hinging later. I can also take some pics of the back later
looks nice to me. My gripe was having to angle my video iPod somehow while letting it sit on the desk, since glare majorly affects it at certain angles.
If the HDD were replaced with a CF card + adaptor, and the ribbon cable extended, you could probably fold it completely in half.
yeah that would be kind of sweet to have a clamshell ipod. they are thin enough :).
Ok, I’m going to extend the wires, I’ll post it when I do, I’ll attempt this weekend at latest
Sadly while doing this I broke the screen connector, the backlight still works as does the peizo, so I know the iPod still works. now I plan to get a new screen and attach it it the improved, useful model. Now it is able to fold back, to fit into a pocket and flip forward, to about 90Â°
ipodmods.com is a reliable source for a new screen. unfortunately it costs about $80. Still, that’s better than paying for a new video…
Sort of sweet mod. Would be nice to see it as sexy as the original, but still sweet nonetheless
i should have done that to my original game boy instead of makeing it shorter and… duct-tapeier
May be due to their dislike.
i need it
uhmmm thats weird design… but I love weird things…
how much will the cost of that ipod laptop?
