iPhone 5: Make one yourself!

iPhone 5: Make one yourself!OK, OK, we get it. You're eagerly awaiting the iPhone 5. Or 4S. Or whatever it's going to be.

But while most of us will just sit on our hands and figure out how we're going to explain it to the bank manager, there appear to be some who go that little bit too far! We're not talking those people who sit on Photoshop for hours at a time composing mock-ups of what it'll probably look like.

Nope, we're talking people like this who actually physically build themselves a non-working iPhone 5, as featured on MacRumors.

If you're like us and are wondering why?!, we can't help you. But if you're wondering how?!, here's the explanation:

"Based on CAD designs, hardware components, several leaked hints, cases and recent, believable mockups we created a three-dimensional computer model. This virtual model was then used to build a very detailed, true prototype that you can hold in your own two hands.

The process to create this prototype is the same that’s used to create the iPad. The back was machined from a sold block of aluminium, which was later treated with glass pearls to get the same slightly rough touch that we already know from the iPad."

The irony is that if they'd hung around a bar, they could have probably found a real iPhone 5 lying around left there by an employee eventually.

In the meantime, if you're looking for something to do with your old iPhone 4, how about building a coffee table? We have to say, we love this. And although it may not be to everyone's taste, it's certainly unique.

Maybe it's the lack of an official announcement that is driving these people loopy? Either way, not long to go now...
