The August 2000 issue of Wired points readers to Tokyo Motor Trenz (site doesn't appear to be working at the moment), a small store in SF that will "trick out" your Nokia cell phone for you. Glow-in-the-dark buttons, clear plastic cases, LCD "tattoos", funky antennas, etc.

A friend of mine did some shopping in Chinatown, and now his battery has chasing lights when it rings, his custom logo shows up on the LCD, the LCD is inverted (black is white, white is black), the LEDs under the keys and LCD are blue, the whole thing is completely translucent, and the antenna is a laser pointer.

And presumably, his battery life has gone down.

This sounds totally cool, but I would hate to spend the money souping up the phone and then run into the guys from the Kill all phones thread. Plus, it would be even harder to not wanna show off such a nifty gadget, and I seem to have a problem keeping tech toys in my pockets where they belong.
