It's the £5 million iPad 2

It's the £5 million iPad 2Behold! Here's what a one-off payment of £5m will get you. It's the latest creation of Liverpool's Stuart Hughes, who specialises in turning high-end tech into insanely priced jewel-dripping gadgets.

This special edition iPad 2 as bedecked in a kaleidescope of diamonds and gems, has a 24ct back and the Apple logo is made out of solid gold. It's been priced at £5 million – and he's only making two.

It's upper crust-focused LuxuryLaunches that brings us the details: “the front frame of this iPad is made out of one of the oldest rocks in the world, the Ammolite, sourced from Canada and dating over 75 million years old.”

And that's just the start. “Sections of a 65 million year old T-Rex dinosaur’s thigh bone has been splintered and then shaved into the Ammolite and finished off with a single cut 8.5ct flawless diamond inlaid in platinum and surrounded by 12 outer flawless diamonds.”

In total you get 16.5cts of flawless diamonds and 53 individually set sparkling gems – and of course an invoice for £5m.

Okay, let's face it. Is this a game-changing new product? In fact, is it relevant to just about any our lives at all? No. But it does look nice and that pic is the closest most of us will ever get to seeing one.
