Remake:  MacBook hidden in an actual book

This thing is called “BookBook” and it’s available from TwelveSouth for $80. Would be an easy remake, though, if you could find an appropriately-sized book. Besides the cool factor, disguising your expensive laptop as an old book has obvious security advantages. [via Geekologie]

    I’d like to see a DIY version of this. I’d have to say that the $75 price tag for the “Book Book” seem very reasonable. I think this would be a cool project for old books to be made into geek storage or other size laptops if you are not a mac person…. Cough.. Cough.. me

    My immediate concern is how do you keep the vents and fan operating properly with something like this?
