Transparent iPhone 4 Exposes Ive’s Best Kept Secrets

This iPhone 4 mod is the best I've seen so far. There, I said it. No other mod can compete with this one, from my personal point of view. I don't know about build quality and difficulty of installation (I guess it's not a 5-step How To), I just know I like it.

It's a fully transparent mod for the iPhone 4, where you get to see the battery and innards through the back of the device, front-facing camera, sensors and screen at the front. It reminds me of those semi-transparent Game Boy Colors Nintendo released in the mid-90s, only for something made in Cupertino.

Full gallery available here. If you know where to buy it, please let us know in the comments. [via TUAW]

Update: Looks like it's a DIY mod with paint thinner used on standard black OEM components. [Thanks, Markus]
