Brooklyn, N.Y. - MusicSkins, a manufacturer of iPod covers, announced an online tool that lets consumers design and create their own CE device skins.
The Customizer, available here, has users first select the device in need of a skin. Available options include netbooks, which are categorized as "small," "medium" and "large"; smartphones, including the iPhone 3G S, BlackBerry Storm, Samsung Instinct and LG Dare, among others; and various iPod and other MP3 player models. Users can also choose from a variety of hard drives, gaming guitars, laptops and video game consoles.
After the proper device is selected, photos can then be uploaded and manipulated. Users can also add text and choose background colors for the skin. The personalized skins, which are billed as being made of a premium-quality vinyl with a high-gloss finish, range in price from $15.00 to $30.00, said the company. They apply easily by using an air-release adhesive technology that prohibits bubbles from forming during application, according to the company.
