Gameboy Laptop Sleeve for Those Who Want All Portable, All the Time

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  December 24, 2009

What is it about retro gaming laptop sleeves lately?

I think it’s also safe to say that this particular design wins due to the inclusion of a game of classic monochrome Tetris. The very sight of it inspires a bit of green-tinted nostalgia, doesn’t it? This project is the first Craftster member instantblue has posted. It’s good to start near the top, eh?

The case itself is made of felt, but the designs required a little more flash: the buttons are made of sculpey clay, and the rest was done with stencils and the help of a good ol’ inkjet printer.
