Cool Stuff: “Back To The Future” Revolution Watch by Mickaël Chros

Gadgets: Skateboard iPhone 4 Case

Introducing the new, one-of-a-kind Board Series from SlickWraps. If you skate and want to show off your style everywhere you go, this wrap is for you. We use real skateboard grip-tape to manufacture each item and each is precision cut with a laser for a perfect fit.

When combined with a wood grain vinyl edge wrap this design actually gives your iPhone 4 the illusion of being a skateboard, all you need now are the wheels. The only advice we can give you is not to slide this phone against your grandma’s table because this material is very rough. Accept no imitations, this wrap is the 1st and only of its kind. Any wrap that follows is surely just a cheap imitation.

Pretty cool. Hit the jump for more pics and a vid. Continue reading
