Sgp Skins Add Metal Accents to Iphones and Other Gadgets – Just Watch Out for the Sharp Edges!

While some of us love the clean minimal design of our iPhones, I’m sure some of you guys would prefer to give your gadgets a little more personal flair. If you’re looking for something a bit out of the ordinary, these metal gadget skins might do the trick.

Made by SGP, these metal skins are made of a wafer-thin layer of nickel or 24K gold-plate sealed with an anti-rust coating. Each set of self-stick metal decals for the iPhone and iPod Touch comes with not only a precision cut face plate, many come with a matching metallic accent ring you can stick around the Apple on the back.

The skins come in a variety of colors and styles, ranging from sublime to garish. I personally like the cobalt blue designs the most.

As an added bonus for iPhone and iPod Touch owners, SGP includes a bunch of metal icons for you to stick on other things, presumably cut out of the scrap metal that remains from cutting out the hole for the screen.

And just because you don’t have an iPhone, you don’t have to feel left out of the metal mayhem. SGP makes metal skins for a variety of other electronic gadgets ranging from cell phones to media players to digital cameras. (They also make some really cool wood, leather and carbon fiber skins for laptops.)

Prices for the metal skin kits range from $15 to $25 (USD) depending on the size and complexity of the decals. They’re all available over at the SGP Store.

(FYI – SGP warns that their metal skins are razor-sharp, so you’ll want to read the instructions and use care when applying them, otherwise you might end up with something a whole lot nastier than a paper cut.)
