Contexture offers iPod cases made from your vinyl records

image

Contexture Design, maker of the “45” vinyl iPod cases, has announced a new service that allows customers to send in their own 7-inch vinyl records, which the company will return as a one-of-a-kind iPod case. The “45” cases fit iPods from 20GB to 80GB and are made of thermoformed vinyl records, recycled felt padding, cork and an acrylic glass window. The center hole of each case’s record is positioned to fit around the iPod’s click wheel. The standard “45” cases are available for $45 and custom 7-inch orders are an additional $7.

Great, now I can spend $52 on what looks like a DIY project available for free to anyone with a 7” record, a piece of felt and a hairdryer. Sweet!

Coincidentally, the hole on a 45 is actually the same size as a 5G Click Wheel, making this even easier to do yourself.

Think of it this way…courtesy of companies like Contexture and others who take old vinyl and destroy them in the name of ‘style’ (seems to me I recall reading about one NYC-based business that made sunglass frames from old records), what music you DO have on vinyl will be worth more…someday.

I can’t wait to turn my 1973 Dark Side of the Moon record into a iPod case!
