Trendy Geek on Tuesday introduced the Pod Shield, designed to protect your iPod from scratches, dirt and fingernails. The Pod Shield is made from a thin, transparent material that clings using static (instead of adhesive) to the front and back of your iPod. One size fits all iPods, old or new, although Trendy Geek notes that it’s optimized for third-generation models. Each Pod Shield can be removed and re-applied.
The front panel covers your iPod’s screen to protect it from harm, while the back covers the iPod’s polished metal case, which is prone to scratches and blemishes. Each Pod Shield kit contains six pieces — three full Pod Shields. The Pod Shield doesn’t obstruct the Dock Connector or the headphone jack, either. A Pod Shield kit costs about US$10.
