An Xbox fit for a ... president?

This was the gift Bill Gates took with him when he met South Korean President Lee Myung-bak at Cheong Wa Dae on 6 May.

The Microsoft Xbox had been specially decorated with traditional Korean mother-of-pearl by Kim Young-jun, the head of a manufacturing company called Gookbo.

He chose to feature ume flowers and butterflies to symbolise patience and perserverance, entitling the final product "Peace".

The designer made three - one for the President, one for Gates, and one "just in case", which he is currently keeping himself.
