Customizable Zunes are wicked cool


I think I’m beginning to understand the whole You Make It You thing, but I could be wrong. I think it’s very cool that MS is taking the laser engraving beyond some stupid text like Apple does, but you’re really not making it you, per se, when you’re using graphics from 18 different artists that includes 27 unique designs. Wait. No. That’s pretty damn cool and if you want text (up to three lines with graphics or five without) then you can have that, too. Aside from the Artist Series, there will be a Tattoo Series with 20 designs. Hopefully the Tattoo Series will be sans everything tribal because that’s been played out more than Chasey Lain’s you know what. The list of artists after the jump. Oh, and it’s all free.

The Zune Originals Artist Series will launch with designs from artists Colletivo Studios, Catalina Estrada, Laurent Fetis, Sam Flores, Klaus Haapaniemi, Pierre Marie, Kenzo Minami, Parskid, Mike Perry, Phunk Studios, Chisato Shinya, Skwak, Iosefatu Sua, Tado, Nobumasa Takahashi, Ramiro Torres, Darvin Vida and Steve Wilson.
