iDisguise – The Minty iPod


Protect your iPod from thieves by disguising it as Candy, thanks Jesse.

It all started when my car was broken into while I was living in Boston. Smashed windows and shattered glass littered my car. Everything was taken…or so I thought. While cleaning up the glass, I noticed my digital camera on the floor of the car among some items not worth stealing. What had caused the thief to overlook my camera was the fact that it was small enough to store in a mint tin, which successfully disguised the camera from him.

Using this experience as inspiration, I set out to develop a line of theft deterrent cases that act as a disguise to protect portable electronic devices. The company is called iDisguise, and the first two of these cases have been released which are designed to look like candy tins while securely holding and disguising an Apple iPod Nano. The cases are meant to be used when an iPod is stored away and not being listened to, the time during which 98% of portable electronic theft occurs (U.S. Department of Justice, 2004). This is why you will not see any holes for a headphone jack or charge port.

The new cases are currently available for sale on the company’s website,
