Ever wondered what sort of a computer would a medieval king use? Well, it would most certainly have to be a computer with a lot of gold on it! Chirita Paris, French hi-tech gift and craft maker, envisioned such a gold computer, and created these pieces of costly office bling with classic French designs, just for a king-like rich billionaire!
Empire Solid-Gold Plated Computer
Chirita Paris’ gold computer is plated with solid gold, and has patterns matching the three royal styles of King Louis XV, King Louis XVI and King Empire. Each gold computer style has also been named after the respective king that inspired its design. The main aim of the company in creating stylish gold computers with traditional French designs is to promote France as a place to buy stylish hi-tech items.
George Chirita, the creator of the gold-plated computer, is actually a professional computer designer. He strongly believes in the concept of luxury technology. While creating the gold-plated computer, he was strongly inspired by the famous French kings Louis XV, Louis XVI and Empire, and created these three fabulous computer designs to match their styles.
All these gold-plated computers are handmade. Below is some more information about each of these gold computer models:
