Turn Your iPhone 4 Transparent

When you replaced the old iPhone 3G cover with a transparent case, it revealed a fugly side. But with the iPhone 4, the inner workings and hidden guts are surprisingly good lookin'. Here's how to turn your iPhone 4 transparent.

The mod was simply done by taking the glass panels off the phone and applying paint thinner to remove the paint. That's all. What you're left with are two clear panes that reveal the innards of the phone.

As one of the many people without an IPhone I must say I don't really care. Though a transparent phone is cool!

Can you do this to a droid? A Windows Phone?

More impressive if it was clockwork.

If I owned an iPhone, I would probably do that...but I would never waste my money on an iPhone.
