Jason Guest has created a version of the forthcoming Apple tablet, rendered in 100% wool felt. The details are too awesome and my favorite is the little gear he cut and stitched for the settings! I’ve posted more photos after the jump, and here’s a link to Jason’s skeleton etsy site, so you can bookmark it and stay in the loop on his future work.
“I stuffed it with 100% wool roving, the felt is 100% wool as well. It took 4 or 5 hours between two days, working on it here and there. I make little felt gnomes and needlefelted animals, but this week I wanted to make something that didn’t fit into what I thought was marketable or conventional. Having grown up with Macs, I couldn’t resist getting their new gadget a month or two early. Kids do stuff like that- pretend they have a cell phone with a block of wood. Draw a picture of a website and a keyboard on a piece of paper and glue it to a tin container or something. Suddenly, they have a computer. The apps were a lot of stitching, but well worth it.”
