Continuing the time tested tradition of dipping ordinary objects in gold for the sake of justifying higher prices, Crystal Rocked presents us with these iPad 2 cases. We’re not entirely sure if “dipping in gold” means gold plated, or if we’re talking molten gold manufacturing here. The company’s website is down at the time of writing, but at current gold prices we suspect that a mere $617 for both the white and yellow gold version point to a plating process. Beneath the layer of gold is a sturdy aluminum frame and of course, all buttons are accessible. Oh and there’s a handle.
