das blau *
mark at sparkability is always passing on the best links. he saw this handy ipod case on designspotter this morning and thought d*s readers might like it...and i agreed. das blau was founded in september 2005 after designers johanna campos and katja hirche wanted to find a way to protect their personal ipod nanos. they designed a leather case that wrapped around the ipod and had a feature that propped it up for watching videos. their design became the "versa" which is now available for the 5g ipod with video. key features include: a belt clip that turns into a stand, a dock connector that's accessible when in "stand" mode, high quality leather with stylish fabric patterns. the versa starts shipping on feb 17 and you can order yours (there are 8 styles from which to choose) right here for $46.99. enjoy!
