    #18 - ION Mod Idea by dmcgrath

    My idea is fairly straightforward. Make a larger than life iPhone. With one limitation, my idea sorta popped up thinking first about creating it with an integrated touchable screen. But I think it would cross the $500 dollar mark right out of the gate unfortunately. So I'm thinking just a 22" flat screen monitor with a acrylic sheet over the whole front area, something like that.



    Now don't get too freaked out by me wanting to see an iPhone bigger (and made with non-Apple components). It's not about a PC looking like an Apple product, it's about a PC looking like an Icon of our current times.

    I have more details in the works. I figure it to lay on it's side like the above pic. But it won't be quite so slim, I'm still working all that out. Probably all components in a box that is also the back support for the monitor. Maybe even an adjustable viewing angle for the monitor.

    I found a monitor on Amazon, $395. Makes it under the wire for price if I could source a HD, RAM, DVD Player and other Mats for only $100. (HA!)
