Sony’s Raden Vaio P
Japan’s most celebrated gadget artist, UFO-Hayashi’s one of kind Vaio P is the ultimate luxury netbook. The design on the netbook is not merely painted on, but painstakingly crafted by carving various shells , and then inlaid on the surface – an artform called Raden. For many, the gemstone inspired sheen of the Vaio P itself is a work of art, which peeks through between the gaps of UFO-Hayashi’s intricate Raden. The pricing is somewhat complicated issue. UFO-Hayashi hand crafts each of his pieces, maing each piece unique. We spotted an Aspire one which costs $300 (rs. 14,819) to begin with, costs $3000 (Rs. 1,48,190) after UFO-Hayashi was done with it.The unadorned Vaio P sells for $1400 (Rs. 69,167), so go figure.
