deck out your gadgets in these diy skins.

by liza darwin

Here's the thing with iPhone, iPod, and laptop cases: we want to buy them- and know we probably should, given the amount of times we drop our phones on the ground each week. The problem is, though, most of the time, the options out there are so tacky/ bulky/ expensive that we just end up blowing off our search and letting our gadgets go naked instead.

However, our newest discovery has us (and our phones) covered. Gelaskins is a collection of thousands of removable skins that protect pretty much every tech device from cracks, scrapes and scratches. Available to fit both old and new models of computers, iPods, Blackberry and iPhones (they even have the 4S!), these 3M adhesives peel right off with zero stickiness left behind.

You can customize your skins with the hundreds of graphics showcased on the website, or upload your own photo or web image instead, making the choices literally endless.

And the best part? Each case only costs about $15. See, now your phone can change clothes as often as you do.
