Going For Gold
Apple products like the Ipod, IPad and IPhones have become ubiquitous items. If you own one of these products then you’re hardly going to stand out from the crowd. Well now there’s a way to enjoy the benefits of having one of these standard items, but still stand out from the rest. The Boss Luxury website offers IPods, IPads, play stations, XBoxes, Nintendos and Apple Macs encased in 24 Carat gold. They are priced double or triple the amount of the standard product, but I suppose maybe you could see purchasing one of these items as an investment; they may become a collector’s item. That’s if you can own one long enough without being mugged.
Computer Of The Future
The computer of the future is here; well actually it’s not, but it will be from mid-July.
The stuff of science fiction has been made reality thanks to Leap Motion, a solution to allow you to control you’re computer without having to touch a keyboard, mouse or screen. The Leap is a 3D motion control device that is meant to be more accurate than using a mouse, touch screen or keyboard. You plug it into your computer’s USB port. It then creates a 3 dimensional interaction space of 4 cubic ft within which you can interface with the computer by typing, drawing or touching in air. “Crush bad guys with your bare hands”, the website boasts, “make music and art with just a finger. Sore around the sun, reach for the stars.”.
Pool Dining Table
The concept of a pool dining table may strike you as a tad potty. And well it might, for this table is built to play host to two varieties of pots. When you’ve had your peas, how about breaking out the cues, clear away those kitchen pots and start potting some balls. You simply whip off the dining table surface to reveal … well, you’ve probably guessed it, a pool table.
They come in a variety of styles, colours and finishes so that you can acquire something that’s also aesthetically pleasing and that fits in with the style of your dining room.
Viper Luxury Quad Bike
The Viper Luxury Quad bike 250 looks like a very stylish way to travel. With coated in metallic paint, 14 inch alloy wheels, LED lights, chrome handlebars and mirrors, and a range of gears and onboard features. It’s designed for comfort while still allowing you to feel that connection with the road which great quad bikes offer. Reaching speeds of around 80 miles per hour, this machine really has the power to move you.
Parrot AR.Drone 2.j Quadricopter
If not a quad bike, then how does the sound of a quadricopter grab you? The parrot AR.Drone 2.j is a remote control helicopter that you can operate from your phone or tablet computer, allowing you to take off, land, hover and flip just by touching the screen on your handheld device.
This is an impressively built machine, a sizeable four blade quadricopter that sports two high-definition cameras to allow you to capture and record the helicopter’s flight from the comfort of your home, perfect for checking out the view from the air or if you fancy yourself as a bit of a spy, watching the unsuspecting people below. You can even programme your flight before take-off and pre-programme intricate and perfectly executed moves to make you look even more impressive to your friends.
Now We’re Really Flying
If you really are facing Peter Pan syndrome then this might be the boys’ toy for you. Stop dreaming, start flying say the German company MS Watersports GMBH who have created the JETLEV-FLYER JF-260. This is a powerful, light weight flying machine that lets you travel at speed both under and above water. It can travel at up to 78 kilometres per hour and at up to an altitude of 10 metres. It can run for 2 to 3 hours before needing to be charged. Visit the website for more information and to watch some videos of this flying machine in action.
It was the poet and songwriter Gil Scott-Heron who claimed, “the revolution will not be televised.” Perhaps not, but the television will be revolutionised, and Meridian Audio is the company to do it. If you’re a bit of a film buff, then you’ll adore the Meridian 810 Reference video system, a revolutionary piece of video technology.
This piece of kit sounds highly impressive. The projector quality is better than found in most commercial cinemas. This gadget is far more than HD ready; it’s positively begging for it. It features a highly advanced video scalar that optimises the imaging of HD resolution input. You’ll be able to see the tiniest microbes on the subjects of Gok Wan’s How to Look Good Naked programme. Hmm, maybe just stick to watching that in standard definition.
If you’ve tried any of the above suggestions or if you have additional ideas about great boys’ toys to share with us, you can leave a comment below. Perhaps you’ll leave us a comment typed on your gold, million dollar laptop.
I just hope you’ve kept that very rare diamond safe.
