Unable to Wait Any Longer, Man Builds His Own iPhone 5

What do you do when you just can’t wait another day for the iPhone 5? Build your own of course!

One die-hard Apple fan, Ben Miller did just that. Taking all the prominent iPhone 5 rumors and meshing them together in what turned out to be a pretty fantastic looking model. Unfortunately the phone doesn’t work, but sports a slightly-larger 4-inch screen, teardrop design and a wider home button.

The prototype was created using the same process that is used to create the iPad, with the back made out of solid aluminum that was treated later with glass pearls to give it that iPhone look.

Hit up the source link for a video of the model, and a few more pictures and details on how it was created.

What do you think? Is this model close to what we’re going to see next week?
