The beautiful custom-designed Leica camera by Marc Newson and Apple’s Jony Ive.

The Leica alone took nine months of design time, which saw 947 different prototype parts and 561 potential models before a final design was reached.

At various stages, Apple lent some 55 engineers to the process, which the company says resulted in 2,149 total hours of labor.

The Leica is to be auctioned at the Product Red Charity Auction during which Ive hopes that all of that work will bring in up to $6 million for the one-off camera, a sizable amount that would fund the fight against AIDS.
