As a gelaskins?

What about LCARS?

I got my gelaskin and I'm kicking myself for going uber ninja geek on it.

What would you do as a custom gelaskin?

Me too:)

I just clicked on this post to say that whatever the "United Fed of Planets" is it's got to be too geeky. Then I saw LCARS and don't know what that is either. No need to respond with the answer because I don't want to know.

I know you didn't want to know but...I can't resist, it is futile :p OMG LCARS is only the coolest UI EVAH! Introduced in Star Trek the next generation which is in the United Federation of Planets!

LCARS is such a great UI done in the 80's and it still nice to this day. I like ST VOY Year of Hell when you know gets blinded (even now I dont want to spoil it for others lol) and he said Computer, activate tactile interface

Here it is in the flesh. Matches well with the Black Leather Smart Cover.

No. Nothing is too geeky to put on your iPad :D.

I got GelaSkins mathematics-inspired "Fish" by MC Escher. This is a wonderful tessellation using red and yellow fish. It looks *awesome* on my iPad and matches perfectly with the red Smart Cover.

United Federation of Planets would make a wonderful theme. I think LCARS would be good for the wallpaper, though you might have to reduce the brightness a bit for better contrast with the iOS icons. Go for it! And please post pictures when you do! :).

In my opinion, there is no such thing as "too much geek" :D:D.

You may be my brother from another mother. I'm spinning. I think I'm gonna faint...omg. I have this thing for compositions. I hope and pray to the geek god of all geeky in the universe and beyond that someone does...a composition smart cover. I'll faint...I'll die. I'll melt. It'll be like a nuclear reaction. :eek:

OK here are the two gelaskins i created.

i think i'm gonna go star trek all the way. I did composition with my ipad 1.

So i think getting a good sized star fleet patch from a treker on ebay...and attaching it to my Levant portenzo would be the solution for my ipad 2

Why use any kind of LCARS skin when there are fully functioning apps that use the LCARS interface anyway?

Because I want to protect the back of the device in a skin that I like?

I don't get what you don't get?
