Dot View Case Hack for HTC One M8: Awesomesauce!

I’m all for retro gadgets, so I just love the Dot View Cover for the HTC One M8. It’s got a bunch of rows and columns of tiny dots through which notifications can be seen, in a retro 8-bit fashion – while also protecting the phone’s screen.

Hacking one seems like a sensible option, since it’s low cost, you get to customize the stand to your liking, and you can always modify it to fit a newer device.
