It's not a gadget per se, of course, but we just couldn't resist because this thing is so far over the top. Finished in white gold and 30 carats of diamonds, the knob costs $150,000--almost as much as the $165,000 Bentley Continental GT, as Luxist points out. As far as we know, it's the only shift knob that has its own Web site. But if … Read more
We never thought we'd see competition for the diamond-studded "TrekStor i.Beat Organix Gold" but, unfortunately, we've been proven wrong once again. The "KVA P30" is another media player lined with diamonds, though in this case fake ones. So even though its cost and availability are unknown, we seriously doubt it will approach its rival's $20,000 price tag. It won't make up for its ersatz stones with higher-end features either: The player may have a 2.4-inch screen but can only store 1GB of video and audio, as BornRich says. But … Read more
Today I welcome Ryan Block, managing editor of Engadget! He shows us the Wii laptop, one of the best gaming mods I've ever seen. Then, of course, I dazzle him with yet another disco product (are there ever enough?), the Funk Fone. And you'll be dazzled blind by the Diamond Flower, a $24,000 mouse studded with, naturally, diamonds. Last but certainly not least is the Ergopod 500--a great contraption for people who need computer access while they're bedridden, but also a possible earthquake hazard. See you next week!
Anyway, Pat Says Now has drawn even more attention to itself with the "Diamond Flower," which it describes as "the world's most expensive computer mouse" at more than $24,000. We'd be afraid to make that claim, given all the insane bling on the personal technology market, but it does have 59 diamonds accenting an 18k white gold casing with … Read more
We've been shirking our responsibilities. It's been days since we highlighted some ridiculously priced (and exceedingly unnecessary) item. So we fulfill our obligation, at least for today, with the "TrekStor i.Beat Organix Gold" MP3 player seen on Uncrate, cast in 18k gold and studded with 63 diamonds. The price? Only $20,000. And if you play your cards right, you may even be able to get free shipping from Amazon.
Finally, a TV that even Zsa Zsa Gabor would like.
To celebrate shipping 1 million of its "Ambilight" TVs, Philips took the millionth one of the line and inserted 2,200 diamonds from the DeBeers Company into the bezel. Ambilight, which adjusts the TV light level to suit the room, has been one of the more successful technologies in consumer electronics in the past few years for the Dutch giant.
The diamonds are swirled in the white part of the bezel. Plasma TVs of this size weigh about 300 pounds, and the Philips booth is located deep in … Read more
We try not to be too judgmental about luxury items here at Crave, being of the capitalistic ilk ourselves. But this is one example that even we find galling: a diamond-studded cell phone strap.
Renowned Japanese jewelry designer Diaddict has created a one-of-a-kind strap that boasts a 6.02-carat yellow diamond, .61-carat blue diamond, .36-carat pink diamond and 2.1 carats of white diamonds, according to Luxist. The price: 100 million yen, or about $842,000.
