Congratulations to Richie P. of Elizabethton, Tenn., for winning a Zcan+ Scanner Mouse in last week's giveaway. Like your gadget garb on the unusual side? Then you'll love this week's prize.

We've got a $100 gift certificate to Nuvango, an online gallery and marketplace that features tons of cool artist-designed accessories for mobile devices, including smartphone cases and skins, and skins for tablets and laptops.

Formerly GelaSkins, Nuvango used to be an invite-only gallery, but has recently expanded into a platform that all artists can join. Which means choices, lots and lots of choices. Florals and landscapes. Sci-fi images. Abstract patterns. Dreamscapes. Cityscapes. Some 2,ooo creatives display their works on the site. To date, the company has paid more than $2.5 million in royalties to participating artists.

What can you get for $100 on Nuvango? Smartphone skins start at $15, iPad skins start at $20, and laptop skins sell from $30 up. If you opt for an art print, those start at $25, with canvases selling for $45 and more.
