More importantly, the iPod Cover brings back the click-wheel with controls feedback and an updated UI since the screen space has now been reduced. In Gomboli's vision, the new UI would feature notifications, widgets, and more -- all without opening the cover of the device. When the case closes, the phone would switch UIs to match the smaller display (similar to Apple's Smart Cases that simply turn off the display).
While the iPod Cover is only a concept, it is definitely a unique and interesting take on bringing the click-wheel back to the iPhone. Would you ever purchase this smart cover if it became a reality?
Hello my music-listening, smart-device-toting sewing friends! Some of you may recall my little green iPod cover (that, incidentally, never got its own blog post, but has made some special (or stealthy) guest appearances in some posts about other bags (like and !)). Not only have you observant readers spotted it in a few places, but a several of you have asked for a tutorial. So, let’s call this my overdue New Year’s gift to you! I hope you find it useful and fun to make. You will have your iPod tucked into a cute, padded, and protective cover in just about 1-2 hours or so with this little photo-full instructional guide.
The back and sides of the top of your iPod Touch cover should be stitched nicely together but you might recall that we left a big opening in the front to allow the butterfly to experience metamorphosis.
