The Tag Heuer Meridiiist Infinite, to be exact. And yes, it&#39;s going to run you back more than the cost of a small car.</p> <p><strong>Are those keys I spy? Ewww.</strong><br />They sure are. But this isn&#39;t a smartphone for multitasking, movie watching or bird flinging.&nbsp;It&#39;s running an unnamed OS (unlike Tag Heuer&#39;s other luxury phone the Link, which runs Android), but that&#39;s ok.</p> <p>It&#39;s a status symbol crafted from premium materials like carbon fibre and titanium.&nbsp;It&#39;s the sort of phone you&#39;d use to order a pony for your daughter&#39;s birthday at five in the morning while you&#39;re having a custom Italian suit fitted in between business meetings about business things.&nbsp;</p> <p>Like its Vertu competitors, the Infinite has a dedicated 24/7 concierge service just one phone call away. No demand is too ludicrous, as long as you&#39;ve got the wallet to back it up.</p> <p><strong>So you&#39;re telling me it can&#39;t run Candy Crush...</strong><br />Sigh.</p> <p>Look, it&#39;s got a sapphire crystal display, ok? Do you know what that means? It means that nothing in the universe short of a diamond pick axe will be able to leave a mark on it, which is why Apple is looking to replace the entire iPhone screen with sapphire.&nbsp;</p> <p>Reportedly, Apple even has a <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/iphone-6-could-have-unscratchable-sapphire-glass-coated-screen-embedded-solar-cells/news" target="_blank">plans to create a sapphire display with in-built solar charging capabilities</a>, but this phone can already do that too.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Come again?</strong><br />The Meridiist Infinte is able to charge itself by using nothing more than light. It&#39;s got a layer of Wysips crystal placed between the sapphire crystal glass and the LCD screen.&nbsp;</p> <p>Created by SunPartner Technologies, this photovoltaic layer of crystals can convert solar radiation into energy. Combined&nbsp;photovoltaic cells and micro-lenses, the whole screen can sip at artificial and natural light, slowly replenishing its power reserves.</p> <p>Currently the technology is capable of generating&nbsp;5 milliWatt-peak/cm&sup2;, but this looks set to double thanks to a newer generation of photovoltaic materials.</p> <p>Realistically we&#39;re looking at around an hour of solar charging for an extra 10 minutes of talk time, but it&#39;s certainly better than nothing and should ensure that the phone will never die on standby.</p> <p><strong>Well, this changes everything</strong><br />Sort of. Not many people can afford to splash out more than three grand for a phone, and only 1,911 limited edition models will be made. But as the technology becomes cheaper, it&#39;ll start trickling down into affordable devices, and we&#39;ll all benefit from it. One day.</p> <p><strong>Right. Well, I&#39;m off to buy a lottery ticket.</strong><br />Us too, friend.
