The Celsius X VI II LeDIX, ringing in at a mere $300,000, has essentially taken a simple, streamlined flip phone and attached a very expensive watch to the front. The fully-visible clockwork on the front of the flip phone is high-end enough to warrant the price tag, and a patented hinge even captures and stores kinetic energy generated by the phone’s user. As a phone, it’s pretty basic GSM model with an integrated 3.2-megapixel camera. There are only 18 LeDIX phones being produced, which is probably a good thing considering our bet that anyone able to afford this gadget already has a pretty awesome phone.
