Short links for August 12th, 2007

Some interesting things I bookmarked on del.icio.us on August 12th, 2007:

  • Miniot – Natural protection for your iPhone. Carved from a single piece of the finest woods, with your monogram, logo or personal message engraved.
  • Sounds from Mountain Park – These are MP3 files that were digitized from Mountain Park’s old 8-track master tapes. The sound quality is consistent with 8-track tapes recorded in the 1970s.
  • Prism Collection – If you didn’t splurge on (oh no we’re gonna say it) an iPhone yet, Nokia’s new 7500 and 7900 Prism cell phones are surely worth some consideration.
  • Fly Me to the Moon: Space Hotel Sees 2012 Opening – “Galactic Suite,” the first hotel planned in space, expects to open for business in 2012 and would allow guests to travel around the world in 80 minutes.
  • Album Speech – Collection of Speak & Spell type machines
  • The Atlas Mech Case Mod – Congratulations to Don Soules from Michigan for crafting the “Atlas” mech PC case mod.
  • Transform an old laptop into a MP3 player – These instructions show how Tony Pascalon transformed an old laptop with a broken screen (white strips on the screen) into a design MP3 player.
