I’ve seen some seriously useless or just plain fugly iPhone cases in my time, but none of them have been as nuts as this tidy little collection from the readers of Engineer vs Design. It held a 3D printing competition for the most absured case concepts people could come up with. There are 180 in all to browse; some awesome, some pretty dumb, but here are five of my favourites.
It's only human to want to destroy beautiful things. We smash temples, palaces, vases — sometimes you just need to let loose. Now, here's an iPad being lasered and torched into a flaming heap.
Android proponents frequently argue that the open-source ecosystem with tons of devices has far more potential than Apple's two device walled-garden. Think of the possibilities!

We’ve heard the government mull over the idea of “super-connected” cities before, but this time the Chancellor has made it part of the country’s budget. He’s allocated some £100 million pounds from the Treasury to force-up broadband speeds to at least 100Mbps in 10 of the UK’s major cities including the capitals, plus Birmingham, Bradford, Bristol, Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle.
These fan-made Splinter Cell webisodes might not have anything to do with Ubisoft, but they’re so slick and professional you could be forgiven for thinking they were. If the games publisher is smart about it, it’ll employ this little lot to make a movie out of the game pronto.
