See-Thru Tablet: DIY iPad

Some modders can really do amazing stuff. Check out this cool tablet PC mod from Chinese modder Pandepig (Google translation).

He used a normal 12″ laptop and stuffed it into a clear polycarbonate laptop cover. Then, he added a touch screen, controller, and secured everything in place with spacers, et voilà! His own little Frankenpad.

Although the clear case is nice, I’d prefer something sleeker, like carbon fiber or brushed aluminum, but what do you want for handmade tech? Sure, it’s no iPad, but the DIY tablet runs Windows 7, and since it uses laptop brains, it can probably run any OS, like Ubuntu. Try doing that on your Apple tablet!
