You know things have gotten out of hand when they start designing buildings to look like the iPod. We were tipped off on this a while back, but now the first pictures have popped up for the iPad, soon to be built in Dubai, United Arab Emerates. I would say the building is more iPod "inspired" than an actual building size iPod, but you can certainly see a family resemblance. To me this model also has a sort of Tron feel to it.
The 23 story residential building will have 200 units and is due to open in 2009. Yet again you have to wonder whether Apple Legal is going to let this pass be unremarked. So you iPod junkies out there: do you love your iPod(s) enough to want to live in one?
