We just received a tinbot and couldn’t be happier. Designed by artist Christopher Lee, it fit perfectly with our iPod classic. Everything is quite snug inside and we think that it gives our music player quite a bit of class. We figure for all our clumsiness that this case, with tin on the outside and neoprene inside, is perfect for travel and a lot classier than our basic iPod case. We definitely recommend them for the terminally clumsy who have an iPod video 30/60/80GB or a classic 80/160GB at the MSRP of $29.95. Although it is not waterproof, the tinbot is certainly water-resistant to a spring rain. A very kewl gift for others, too, especially if you want to decorate it yourself, as they have one you can customize for $10.00 less.
Check out more shots after the jump.
