The Second Angle

iPad 2 Gold History Edition

For $7.8 million, you could own a piece of technology that’s made of bone shavings from a 65-million year old T-Rex. But that’s not all this iPad has to offer. The front frame is made of the world’s oldest rock, Ammolite, which dates back 75 million years. It doesn’t even stop there.

Lastly, the device comes with 53 12.5 carat diamonds and logo is crafted from 24-carat gold. You have to be careful owning this device, since if someone stole it or dropped it, that’s millions of dollars down the toilet. We’re not sure we’d trust ourselves to own such a device, which is why it’s something only the rich can afford (The Second Angle).

Vertu Signature Cobra

Apparently, customers who purchased this phone received their delivery via helicopter. It’s like something from an action movie, but instead of a hero fighting crime, it’s a cell phone delivery.

That beats going to the store and choosing a phone from a glass display. Its signature feature, a cobra, is made of 439 rubies and emerald snake eyes. The phone cost over $360,000, and only eight units were made in the entire world. Even though it’s a unique piece of technology to own, it doesn’t seem like it’s worth it (Luxuo).

Richard Mille RM 69

We know at least one celebrity that adores this watch, and it’s Drake. This watch costs as much as a house. It sells for $750,000. That’s a lot of zeros. It’s semi-transparent and has the words “I Want to Caress You Tonight” on the top. It looks like a watch from the Terminator, because of its very robotic style.

We’re not sure we’d want to spend even as much as $50 on this watch. But it looks like there are some rich people out there who can afford to spend a lot more than that. Drake must have a lot of confidence being able to walk around and wear a watch with this quote on it. This isn’t something most of us will ever see ourselves doing, but it’s fascinating that there are people out there who do this (The Richest).

Apparently, we need to be able to tell time from more angles than one. If you’re a flashy hot shot and like showing off, then this watch may be just for you. Since only the rich can afford this one, the rest of us need to stick to our Walmart watches (CEO World).

201 Carat Chopard Watch

If you’ve ever wanted to own a watch that costs $25 million, then now is your chance. We’re not sure who has that kind of money lying around, and why they would spend it on a watch, but apparently it happens. Even though only extremely wealthy people can afford this watch, it’s still nice to look at and pretend we can own it, too. It was launched in the year 2000 and made in Switzerland.

What makes it so expensive is the 874 high-grade diamonds that are all different colors, of blue, white, and pink. A pink diamond sits in the middle of the watch and weighs over 15 carats. There are also 26 pear-shaped diamonds that weigh over 17 carats. When pressed, a spring-loaded mechanism exposes three heart-shaped stones that open like flower petals (passionbuz).

Walking is so overrated, because now, you get to explore in egg-shaped style. This certainly saves walking around a city for hours on end, or relying on public transportation to get around. If it’s a beautiful, sunny day, and you own a Segway S-pod, then why not take it for a spin? These are the inventions of the future (passionbuz).

Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus Loudspeaker

It seems like speakers are getting more and more expensive as time moves on. The Bowers & Wilkins speaker has a museum-worthy design with damping tubes and a slick look.

Camael Diamonds iPad

Everyone dreams of wearing a diamond ring one day. Typically, it happens when we get married, but sometimes, it happens a lot sooner. If you’re rich, you can afford this $1.2 million iPad. It’s crafted with 300-carat diamonds and 18-carat gold. The Apple logo is made with black diamonds. It’s almost better than a diamond ring, since you’re getting a variety of diamonds in one place.

Similarly to the laptop, this is a piece of technology we wouldn’t want leaving our house. It weighs over a kilogram, which means it’s heavier than most other laptops. This is best left on display, from the safety of our living room (The Times of India).
