Marc Newson Apollo Flashlight

My friend Pat, incorrigible design snob and the proprietor of Portland's Hive Modern gave me this incredible Marc Newson designed flashlight as a gift.

Machined from solid bar stock, with a leather strap and no exterior protrusions, this thing needs no more description that offered by the above photograph.

These guys should have had one...
