Suit of titanium armor for the Nano warrior

It costs only five times more than the iPod itself

Kiwami Studio

Aluminum is for foil. Stainless steel? Barbecues and razor blades. The only metal truly worthy of armoring your precious iPod Nano is titanium.

The "Re-Nano Factron" case by Kiwami Studio is made of the ultra-hardened substance, the type that's been used to protect everything from battlefield spy bots to keyboards and USB drives that can survive being run over by a car in the snow. Engadget says it's available in Japan for around $818--or about five times more than the Nano itself. Now that's what we call commitment.
