Look, bro, I’m not here to judge. Gray, for their part, makes pretty nice cases for your iPhone. There’s just one little catch: these beasts cost more than your bloody iPhone.

Priced at $1,899, the Alter Ego case for example is made of titanium and covered in vapor-deposited metal. If you’re a bit tired of boring old dark colors, you can also grab the gold-plated model for a mere $2,699. That’s right: you can own a piece of metal that will outlast your iPhone and will probably cost more than two of them.

The cases come in limited editions of 500 pieces and feature a unique style that protects the faces and corners but lets the iPhone’s surfaces shine through. Lest we forget Gray is the same company that makes the $999 crypto wallet, a concept that, while bold, makes a little more sense than outfitting a fast-moving consumer good with gold-plated titanium.
