    Behold. The ultimate modding case for the iPhone and iPod touch.

    TinkerBrick has designed a case for the iPhone and iPod touch that will make your device LEGO-friendly. The case features studs on the front and holes on the back that make the device a giant LEGO-like brick that can actually be used with your LEGO products (or third-party LEGO wannabes) to add some Apple technology to your creations.

    While making your iPhone or iPod touch into a useable LEGO brick, the case still keeps your Cameras, microphones, speakers, headphone jack, charger jack, home button, volume buttons, power button, ringer/silent switch, and touch screen accessible.



    So why is the TinkerBrick the ultimate modding case? Just think about it. You can make anything you want in your own image with LEGOs. Docks, gaming handles, dump trucks with animated loads. TinkerBrick has an awesome compilation video with some ideas here:



    Currently, the TinkerBrick case appears to only be in stock from Amazon for the iPod touch 4G, however TinkerBrick will be bringing the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S version out soon as well. The team also tells us that an iPhone 5 version is on the way. The iPod touch 4G version, usually $34.95, is on sale from Amazon for $32.95 and comes in yellow, red, black, and white.

    One thing that’s for sure is that the case’s studs on the front and holes on the rear may make it uncomfortable to hold in your hand for long periods of time or to have in your pocket for long periods of time. Because of this, it’s recommended that you don’t choose this case solely for protection purposes.

    On the other hand, it’s a pretty sweet idea!

    Why is it, as a kid I never stepped on Lego. Yet as an adult, I can't stop stepping on the damn things!

    Cool. That should make building something like this

    Expanding horizons: Over The Air Hack - a LEGO robot with an iPhone brain

    even easier -- mechanically speaking...

    Yes, I imagine this will turn your iPhone in to quite a foot magnet...

    Wow, that's cool. You could make all sorts of camera stands and custom case parts.
