Cover Turns iPad 2 into Original Macintosh

by Paul Strauss

I’m not sure what the fascination is with covers that make new gadgets look like old ones, but here’s another one. Now you can make your iPad look like an original Macintosh computer from the mid 1980s.


Other than the ugly logo for HOMADE, the company that makes the thing, it’s a dead ringer for the old Macintosh 128k model which took the world by storm back in 1984. It’s even got a 3.5″ floppy stuck in the disk drive. Just don’t try and use a paperclip to get it out, unless you want to scratch the back of your iPad. The case fits around the backside of your iPad 2, and has cutouts so your Smart Cover, camera and speaker still work.

I only wish that it came with an app that let you run original Macintosh apps on your iPad. I think it would be fun to play with MacPaint, and watch some flying toasters drift by on the screen in between rounds of Dark Castle and working on a Hypercard deck using that awesome San Francisco font.

If you’d like to convert your fancy new iPad 2 into an old Macintosh, head on over to USB Fever, where you can grab this cover for $36.99 (USD). If it weren’t for that stupid logo, it would be perfect. I think I’d buy one of those old rainbow Apple stickers to cover it up.
