Laser Engraved iPhone with Epilog’s Zing
Epilog’s Zing laser engraver is essentially a computer printer that uses a 25W CO2 laser instead of a toner cartridge. It reproduces images on an array of surfaces, including woods and metals; the only thing is that it can’t add color. In a DIY project, friends at Geek.com engraved their iPhone using the Zing, and here’s how they did it:

The Zing was hooked up to a standard notebook computer and was using a Corel program to manipulate the art and position the image. I wanted it bigger, but they recommended that we not go over the plastic or mirrored Apple logo, for obvious reasons.

Epilog’s Zing laser engraver costs $8000.
