World's Most Expensive Christmas Card Includes iPhone

The perfect gift for the guy or gal that has everything could be this Christmas card that includes a multi-hundred dollar piece of technology.

Former CNET UK staffer Chris Stevens has designed one of the most expensive Christmas cards ever, and also released a video that shows you how to make one too. The card includes an iPhone that displays the Bauble app, which shows a Christmas ball that sways from side to side as the iPhone is tilted.

While the idea appears to be conceived as an advertisement for Bauble, the card is at least an amusing idea. It's very unnecessary, sort of like taking an airplane to cross the street. I'm not sure who would treat an iPhone this way, but for a project that probably nobody will actually take on Stevens sure gives perfect step-by-step instructions.

If anything, this card could be a clever way to give someone an iPhone. Maybe I'm missing something, but I believe an iPod Touch could be used as well, which wouldn't require a phone contract. On a side note, the slots in UK mailboxes sure look small; I'm surprised Stevens could fit his iPhone Christmas card in one of those.

Certainly unique, I will give it that.

And there not that small! You could be surprised what you can fit in em!

I'd rather have the TF2 Christmas card instead

U.L mailbox slots are larger than an A4 piece of paper.

Maybe, but certainly not if that piece of technology is an iPhone. I'd have thought people at the Escapist would be capable of seeing through the hype.

Well if I had the money, why not?

I've tested that many times. According to my research, they're not. What other response would necessitate the writing of a 8,000-word criticism of almost every detail of the phone?

I'm sorry, I'm just sorry how can anyone rightly spend that much on gold paper for a card! It's madness

That's what she said. (does that really work anyway)

I wish I would have gotten a card like that. I only get shitty cards with stupid text. No Christmas spirit at all from those people! Humbug...

Funny thing is if someone was to send that in the mail the phone screen would probably be demolished.

MADNE- oh come on.

I'm not so sure this is the worlds most expensive christmas card. Theres bound to be some diamond encrusted one.

I would've bubble-wrapped it or something at least. Actually scratch that I wouldve kept the phone myself.

But if I was going to send it I'd never trust it to make it in one piece. But would be a cool surprise but would the weight not give away something?

I needed to message you actually Rak!, I used a BlackBerry yesterday, and by god I could actually hear what the other person was saying to me!.... like even on a crowded train platform!, I was shocked.

I'll give you that, the iPhone as a phone is pants, but i'm not a power user such as yourself so I'll stick with it to be honest, staying with the my ehPhone and not spending money on a new phone is what I like about it!.

OT, so you have to send the "ehPhone" while its on for the baubles to play?, well mr Goldman while your surprised at the small letterbox's the UK have, you'll be shocked to know that by the time Royal Mail have delivered the iPhone Christmas card it'll be out of battery.

damn.

his hand writing is very, very good!

That's very true... One of the things I thought of instantly...
I'd do this with an Ipod touch, if I had the money...
