'Bland' iPod Shuffle gets third-party arty visual update

Designer displays his etchings

The new talking iPod Shuffle only officially touched down yesterday, but one artist’s already decided it looks too bland and has sketched some more eye-catching bodywork.

Shuffle The Possibilities: a work of art?

Peter Cui’s artwork suggests brightening up the MP3 player’s bland façade with laser engraved designs and boy does his concept portfolio – entitled Shuffle The Possibilities – include some wacky etchings.

For example, you could confuse the heck out of people by etching Microsoft’s logo down the Shuffle's front or by tattooing the Zune logo onto it.

Show off some Obama love, through your Shuffle

Alternatively, how about making the tiny MP3 player look like a lighter by adding a Zippo logo? But if you’re worried about battery life then why not make the player look like one with the addition of Energizer branding – complete with positive and negative symbols.

"I'm a PC and I wear glasses," would have been cool

Register Hardware’s two favourite designs, though, must be the image of Star Wars’ Dark Lord of the Sith and the addition of laser etched controls taken from the previous Shuffle - just to confuse you.

Enjoy… ®
