The Ikepod Hourglass by Marc Newson

Each hourglass is hand blown from one single piece of borosilicate glass in Basel, of all places. Filling each piece is not sand, but rather a incredible amount of tiny nanoballs each coated in different material. To be more specific, each hourglass contains 8 million nanoballs. It's a beautiful piece for your desk. But at $28,500!!! I'm not wetting my pants.
