FUN BREAK: Homemade solid gold iPod watch

Gold plated Apple products seem to be everywhere these days, but few  —if any—are homemade and required 500 hours of hard work like this 18-karat gold iPod Nano watch, created by tech enthusiast Ted Chapanian.

His AuPod is made from a 6th generation iPod Nano and 18-karat gold, at a cost of $2,500 in materials only. Considering that a gold iPhone 4S had a price tag of $9.4 million, Chapanian’s version is not bad.

The inventor’s wife posted his making-of video to Reddit and fielded questions about the project. You can watch it below:
