In honor of the 2001 Minnesota State Fair, wireless application firm Gearworks, commissioned the creation of a 50-pound butter sculpture in the form of a gigantic PDA.

Rather than see the world's first, largest, and most beautiful, Butter PDA go to waste, we recognized the market demand for such an item and now offer it to the public in a charity auction.

The Butter PDA was commissioned to display Gearworks' software login screen but can easily be smoothed and carved to display whatever message or image you desire. As butter goes, the Butter PDA is also quite sturdy and could survive transport of several hundred miles given proper refrigeration.

Own a piece of history! We strongly encourage you to bid often and bid high!

Serious inquiries should contact rdavis@gearworks.com.
