Website CoolAsFunk tracked down these fabulous wooden iPod cases from Japanese wooden-toy manufacturer Asuka Koubou via distributer Rakuten. Your 5G or nano iPod slips into the case, leaving access to the docking port, scroll wheel and screen. It's not entirely clear what keeps the iPod from slipping right back out again, but given how marvelous these things look, who is going to quibble about mere functionality, darling? If my ability to read Japanese pages works--and, frankly, it rarely has--it looks like these cases sell for about 5775 Yen each, or about $50 in US currency.
