I needed a case to protect my shiny new iPod Touch, The problem was i didn't want a bulky silicone case and nor did i want a fashionable but unpractical one, this and i didn't want to buy something i can make :P

I brainstormed some ideas and my biggest concern was i didn't want the materials to have sharp edges that could scratch the screen, after searching through my some of my limited resources i found some black foam, i also found a microfiber cloth to line the inside of the case with.

As the case is in your pocket or bag the weight of the iPod/iPhone shifts and it rubs against the microfiber cloth which in turn polishes and cleans your device ! Simple !

Now this is how you make it !

Step 1: Materials/Tools

  • Foam (about 5mm thick)
  • Elastic
  • Super glue
  • Microfiber Cloth

  • X-Acto knife
  • Ruler
Ahh i bought a big few meters of this roll at a vintage rally near me for 50p!<br /> <br /> Its useful for putting over your desk while soldering etc <br />

i laugh at every one of you, i got the first 2nd gen to be sold at our walmart, they only got 3 in on the first shipment and were backordered for 3 weeks after that, needless to say, i was lucky :D
so what
I laugh at all of you (insert hearty laughter here) I'm getting mine tonight! btw: Love the Instructable-->making one asap
I got a new job and worked for months for mine :P
most people get them for Christmas...<br/><br/>damn, i wish i could <em>get</em> a job, nowadays yard work is done by... uhh... &quot;immigrant workers&quot;, i won't get into that subject, but <em>anyways</em><br/><br/>there really isn't too much stuff that kids can do for jobs now... <sup>in the u.s.</sup><br/>
Amen, I'm 15 and can not find a job that you don't have to be at least 16 for. so far all i've found is chickfila but you still can only work for like 4 hours a day.
well, there are <em>some</em> places in <em>some</em> states that allow it at 14, but i'm not 14, plus i don't live in utah anymore.... =-(<br/><br/>and i would NEVER EVER work at chickfila, because that's soooo degrading to serve people in a fast food resturant... maybe a <em>good</em> resturant...<br/>
Money is money... right? I would rather get money working at a fast food restaurant, than nothing...
yeah, i guess.... but still...
not to be a wanker or anything but this is WAYYYY bigger than the silicone case i had for my iphone... i've since moved on to an even bulkier wood one that's still smaller than this one...
Ah yes but mine has better protection !
Sure, but it must look like you're carrying around a 3.5" IDE hard drive in your pocket. I'm sure it would work perfect in a bag or purse, but for carrying in a pocket it's just too big.
Whats wrong with carrying a 3.5" IDE HDD in your pocket? lol
HAHA agree completely
on you own instructions...
Instructable, and its a joke :P

Actually its Potato - Patato, with the latter one being a mis pronunciation favored in the US

Damn what country do you live in? We stop learning spelling here in Australia at like 14 or 15.
he is trying to get attention by making himself seem dumb, its most common it younger girls at his age.

are we talking about you? NO.
Wow that was harsh lol
and i wasnt talking to you...
well done, you deserve a sticker
no a gold star!! (and a very nice -ible do you find it fits well in a tight jean pocket i would make it but the not fitting well in my pocket made me take my last case back:)
in the US and i am in the 10th grade and we still have spelling tests
i never hear anyone actualy say patato and i do live in the us
Good idea, I love having a nice clean ipod screen :D
Thanks !, I hate smudges :P
I hate smudges too :P They annoy me a lot. I finally got a screen protector yesterday though so I'm not as worried about smudging the actual screen. I'm always afraid I'll get a permanent smudge on it...
Nice sound sticks in the background
Haha, Cheers mate
What are the basic dimensions for the device?
