    So I have been at Kensington Olympia Conference Center all of last week, promoting Ruckus Wireless to education.

    Great laugh, any ways in return for free wireless (the only wireless that managed to work in such a dense 2.4gHz spectrum) the guy in the opposite stand had some wicked cool CAD woodcutters and engraving machines!!

    He actually engraved my name into a tissue without breaking the other end!!

    So i let him loose on my iPhone. Came up with a simple design and here it is::

    I need to get some acrylic silver paint to fill it in as apple used cheap plastic for the back.

    Underneath the red lines is my work email address:

    Let me know what you think:

    I need to buy some black or silver (that matches the shine of the apple logo) and some how fill it in. But it is sooo fine, it will be very hard!!

    Is any one good at arts and craft that could suggest a few methods?

    I have 2 templates done on similar plastic to practise on first

    That looks sweet. It's a really good design and looks like it was executed perfectly. You are pretty lucky to have that random opportunity come at you. I'm not sure how you should fill that in with paint though. It will be pretty hard.

    Thanks, it only took me a few minutes to design it(obviously by the look)

    I would have spent more time on it if i had it

    Tell me about it, lucky or what!

    He started to tell me how he was doing his sons DS for Xmas and completely messed it! like burned the screen lol. but after seeing the laser on the tissue i had full faith

    was biting my nails through the entire process thou lol.

    I don't think I could stand to set there and watch a laser melt something in the back of my iPhone.
