Cool Stuff Review - GelaSkins

This is a re-post from my old blog from 5/20/07

GelaSkins are removable “stickers” to customize your iPod or your laptop.

I bought 3 different styles for my iPod with video as well as my old 12″ Powerbook to take advantage of their buy 4 get one free deal.

Here is one applied to my iPod, one package and one contents of package. (You can click for a larger image.)

Here is the Powerbook Skin.

On the Powerbook.

It’s very easy to remove with nothing left on the laptop.

The stickers are high quality, look great and are very easy to apply. I was concerned that it would be difficult to apply to some of the smaller areas such as the click button on the center of the iPod wheel but it was fairly easy even for someone like me who doesn’t have fine motor control. The included screen protector was the best I’ve seen in ease of application and the lack of any bubbles.

They were a bit expensive. The iPod skins were 14.95 USD and the 12′ Powerbook skin was a whopping 32.95 USD. However it does do an excellent job of protecting my old already scratched up laptop and you can’t be to careful with those video iPod screens.

I’ve also gotten numerous compliments on my iPod from co-workers and envious (at least I thought they were envious) stares from folks on the train.

If you are looking for a great way to customize your tech toys without damaging them then GelaSkins might just be a great way to do it.
