The World's Ugliest Gadgets

Swarovski-Crystal-Covered Sidekicks, TVs, Xbox 360s, iPods, Mics....

Tacky and ugly are the only two words that can describe the annoyingly ubiquitous trend of slapping Swarovski crystals on anything with a power plug. That Paris Hilton and her sister Nicky seem to favor these sorts of flashy gadget-adornments only proves that money and pedigree still can't buy you taste. We've found loads and loads of these gaudy gadget coverings, from shiny rust-colored Nanos and crystal-covered refrigerators to flashy Xbox 360 faceplates and, of course blinged-out televisions. At least Philips is upping the luxury factor with 2,200 truly fancy De Beers diamonds on this plasma, which, frankly, looks like it would have fit nicely in Liberace's home entertainment room. Enough already.
