Gresso has a history of making some cool, gaudy, and crazy expensive gadgets and items. The company makes a watches and has a history of taking cool gadgets and glamming them up for rich geeks. The latest thing to get the Gresso treatment is the popular Apple iPad. The Gresso version of the iPad is designed for "luxury and exquisite style of perfect technologies."


The iPad's aluminum back is covered in 200-year-old African Blackwood and the Apple logo is done up in 18k gold plating. You even get the iPad name engraved in the wood under the logo. The use of the old wood means that no matter how many of the things are sold, they will all be unique and different.

Other than the wooden back and the gold logo this is the same old iPad that geeks all around the world are using on the inside. All of the buttons are left uncovered and the wood doesn't extend to the front of the iPad at all. Gresso is mum on pricing, but if you have to ask, you can't afford it.
