Maxell launches leather DVD
Not for vegetarian storage fans
All sorts of things are already bound in leather, including sofas and chairs, books and, even, the Blackberry Bold . But Maxell has taken things one-step further by unveiling a range of leather DVDs.
Maxell's DVD's have a leather-like top coating
It's claimed the discs are the world's first DVDs to feature a leather top coating, which allows punters the opportunity to record data onto one of five colours of leather disc, including “Ivory White,” “Rich Black” and “Crimson Red”.
Those with a liking for 100 per cent real leather could be disappointed though, because the discs are described as “leather-like,” which suggests that the covering is synthetic.
Nonetheless, Maxell’s created both DVD-R and DVD-RW leather bound disc collections. Both will come in packs of 10 disks.
The leather discs will be available from 25 October, but a UK specific release date or price hasn’t been given yet.
