The Playbook For The Modern Man

Shut Up And Take My Money – Issue #4

We’ve gone a bit Star Wars crazy this week to coincide with the release of the latest trailer for the epic space saga. The real winner could well be you though with half of the coolest stuff this week lobbing in at under $100. From a Death Star ice mould to some sweet Batman decals for your Apple products, may the Force shut you up and take all your monies.


#1 Liquid Lamp by Kouichi Okamoto
Ever gone painting and knocked over the entire can? Well this lamp design ingeniously replicates that same dilemma to help light your path in the most trendiest way possible. The lamp is made from sturdy iron plate and features a stand that also doubles as the look of spilt paint (or blood depending on your childhood upbringing).
Price: US$230/BUY


#2 Star Wars Death Star Ice Mould
In some odd parts of the world it’s actually summer now. And summer usually means ice of the non-Vanilla variety. For those of you lucky enough to be kicking back to a tan at the moment, behold the greatest ice mould man will ever feast eyes upon. The Empire’s deadliest weapon can now be intricately reproduced in the safety of frozen water. The ice mould is also heat resistant allowing you to cook up all sorts of treats in the shape of Darth Vader’s pad.
Price: $12/BUY

#3 Stiga Studio Ping Pong Table
Don’t be fooled by the conventional looks – this offering from world famous table tennis brand Stiga is actually a home entertainment centrepiece. Decked out in matte black and silver, the table features a 2800-watt sound system that pumps out the noise in all of its 360 degree glory to entertain your ageing neighbours for days. Hardware consists of a QSC CXD series professional processing amplifier, a pair of Kicker 12-inch Solo-Baric L7 Subwoofers and eight Kicker KS Series 3-way 6×9 speakers. The table is also Bluetooth-enabled and features LED down-lighting that pulsates in time to the beat. It is handmade in the U.S.A and has a pricetag to match.
Price: $14,900/BUY

#4 Batman Apple Decals
Personalise your most beloved Apple products with these quirky Batman decals that perfectly mask the Apple logo. The decals will effortlessly turn your Macbook, iPhone or iPad into the hero that Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now.

#5 Fingerprint Digital Door Lock by Samsung
If your ex-girlfriend says she’s coming over to return some stuff, you reply “sure”, then you proceed to install one of these bad boys on every single door. Designed by Samsung to protect your most valuable home assets including yourself, the fingerprint digital door lock is a peek into the future of home security. It features a full touchpad screen with auto and manual locking modes, anti-panic system with electrostatic discharge protection, theft alarm and fire detection sensor which has been PSB fire tested. If your ex is really persistent, there’s also multi-levelled security code entry parameters. Emergency external battery terminal and mechanical override keys are included in the package and the lock can hold up to 100 fingerprints and 10 passwords.

#6 Storm Trooper Fine Art Print by Filip Peraić
Another great Star Wars novelty this week is this fine art piece by Filip Peraić. Who needs the Mona Lisa when you have this bad boy hanging on your wall?

You can also choose from black and white wooden frames with a satin finish.
