Carbon fiber iPod nano case introduced

imageC6 Manufacturing has introduced a carbon fiber iPod nano case. The $40 case features genuine aerospace carbon fiber construction, a clear screen protector and a stainless steel belt clip. “As a designer for professional motorsports teams (Indy car, NASCAR) I have been using advanced materials such as titanium and carbon fiber all my career,” C6’s Jason Anderson told iLounge. “When I purchased a nano and could not find a decent case for it, I decided to create my own. After it was completed everyone who saw it wanted one (even people who hadn’t purchased a nano yet) so I decided to start selling them.”

I wouldn’t mind seeing a review on that. But i’m very dissapointed that all four sides are completely showing

If I had a nano, I would buy this case. Any chance it might show up for the video iPod? If so, I’m on it!

Wow. Cases come and go, but this case is really cool.  Need one for the video iPod!

Let’s see…

1. Every single side of the iPod is totally exposed.

2. The back has a cutout to show the iPod logo on the metal, but the clip looks to rub right against the back if you aren’t using it.

No thanks. The carbon look is good, the protection is non existant.

The manly-man’s nano case. (Do I hear grunting?) Not bad in its concept of “use it or lose it” thinking. It does look nice, and I like the four corner fasteners further adding to the industrial look. As far as protection, the concerns above are valid, but I don’t think this is what this case is about.

A welcome change in the iPond of silicone iProphylactics.

FINALLY a carbon fiber case…took long enough for one to show up.  Ricers rejoice!

But what’s up with that weave they used? Unique, but doesn’t match any of the CF dash kits I’ve seen on the market.

Okay…carbon fiber’s done. Now when does the Kevlar case show up?

Here here FahrenheiPod, the point is artistic with a little function!

I personally like it for the artistic.  Very nice!

Excellent looks, very little protection. Perfect cosmetic mod. If you get over the urge to keep your iPod in like-new condition, which is not going to happen anyway, this actually becomes very compelling. And I don’t even have a nano *g*

i would definitely rather have this sitting on my desk, instead of the iWood.

At first glance it doesn’t look like a good design. Wouldn’t it scratch the side front and back of the Nano? I have the Nano and i think the flip case doe the job just fine.

Unless your headphone jack is tiny, looks like it may be blocked by one of its corner screws…

Wow.

I hope they make others for other sizes other than Nano!!!!

This is the most innovative case I’ve ever seen. Who the hell needs to protect the “sides” of their Nano, the thing is so thin. I would be more concerned with putting the thing through the washing machine or having crappy music on it. The hole in the back allows for a lower profile on the belt clip, genius. I think a design like this would be too bulky for a video iPod, but for this, definitely the best looking case on the market.

This case is awesome. I purchased the case and have people wanting to buy it everywhere I go. The way the screws are oriented prevent the sides from being touched if you were to drop your nano. Any headphones fit right into the jack, plenty of clearance from the side screws. Can’t wait for more of c6mfg innovative designs.
