This transparent Samsung Galaxy S8 is a thing of beauty

Samsung Galaxy S8 Transparent Clear

I miss the days of transparent gadgets; my clear GameBoy Color was a prized possession. Apparently, YouTuber JerryRigEverything misses those days too, because he just painstakingly turned his Samsung Galaxy S8 into a gorgeous piece of transparent gadgetry.

The DIY project isn’t exactly easy, involving paint thinner, lots of scraping, peeling, and even cutting off a few internal components, but I suppose that’s the price you pay for this kind of beauty. Needless to say, if you want to give it a try, you’ll be voiding your warranty.

Seriously though, why don’t more companies do this anymore? I bet they’d sell like hotcakes – just look at the comments below the video. Get on it, Samsung.
