iPod Envy

My friend Marco has one of the newer iPods. It's one of the most beautifully designed objects ever to come into being - it represents a fine balance of form and function. To hold it is sheer tactile joy - the iPod is sleek, light, smooth and curved - its gleaming underside evokes the sense of precious metal, platinum or perhaps titanium. You feel as though you are not merely holding an object, but a magical totem, full of the potential, the possible. It's like an artifact from the future.

It gives me pleasure to know that such a thing exists in the world. Of course, I'm also jonesing for one in the worst possible way. But for those of us who can't have one just yet, we can construct our own Paper iPod in the meantime. [via BoingBoing]
