Jony Ive's Leica M for (Red) camera to be auctioned at Southeby’s
Apple has been a loyal supporter of AIDsresearch, having been able to donate over $65 million since time immemorial. Apple's top designer, Jony Ive, is no different either. Teaming up with Australian industrial designer Marc Andrew and Germanopticscompany, Leica Camera, Ive worked on a special camera called the Leica M. And it will be auctioned at Southeby’s on November 23rd.
Leica says that the main goal of the auction is to raise money for The GlobalFund which aims to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The Leica M for (RED), as it is called, features a full-format CMOS sensor and a Leica APO-Summicron –M 50mm f/2 ASPH lens. As if to laud Ive's fascination with aluminum, the camera features a laser-machined aluminum body. It took 85 days, 1000 parts, and 561 protoype models to create the final version of the camera.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
