iPad-2-Gold-History-Edition

Stuart Hughes, British designer of exclusive gadgets, encrusted an iPad 2 with diamonds, gold and shards of real dinosaur bone and has put it up for sale on his website for five million pounds ($8 million).

The gadget's rear section features two kilograms of 24-carat gold and the front frame is made from Ammolite, the oldest rock in the world (over 75 million years old).

To make the gadget even more individual, sections of a 65-million-year-old T-Rex dinosaur thigh bone were splintered and shaved into the Ammolite.

The Apple logo is encrusted with 53 flawless diamonds and a single 8.5-carat diamond decorates the "home" button.

The gadget dubbed the "Gold History Edition" is of a limited edition of only two units to be made.

Hughes, and his wife Katherine, create and sell exclusive iPhones, laptops, plasma TVs and other gadgets with mind-blowing price tags.
