Sure, you love your iPod, but we'll bet you wish there was a way you could replace that sleek, white case with a big, clunky grayish-white blob straight out of 1989. We hear ya. That's why we're happy to point you to this Flickr set that has detailed instructions for turning that beautiful iPod into a late-'80s eyesore.

Apparently, the process isn't as simple as you might think. A 60GB iPod barely fits into the classic Game Boy's case, and there's a lots of cutting and soldering required to get everything working with the original portable's controls. It's all worth it, though, to be able to pretend you're playing some decades-old portable game when you're actually rocking out to the latest tunes. Yeah!
