Apple have reportedly ordered a "massive number" of camera modules, similar to those found in the iPhone, which will likely find their way into the iPod touch and nano.

Reminding us of Thermaltake's monster Level 10 PC case, this is actually the Edelweiss PC, the handiwork of Pius Geiger and in fact initially constructed all the way back in 2006. Updated this year with a crisp new white color-scheme, the water-cooled Edelweiss separates out drives, graphics and power-supply, and then illuminates them with a discrete but effective lighting system.

If you recently picked up the newest iPod Shuffle and have yet to find a suitable case for it, you just might need to check out the Action Jacket Sports Case from DLO. This case was designed specifically for the Shuffle and it makes exercising or general hands-free music listening a snap.
The Antec Skeleton PC case isn't exactly a shy and retiring design in itself, which is why entrants to the company's modding competition have had to reach a little further in order to come up with something eye-catching. Designs range from repaints, through bizarre furry wings, to doubling-up the case like this spaceship-like concept here; there's also a very convincing All-In-Antec machine.
