The Playbook For The Modern Man

Shut Up & Take My Money – Issue #33

Welcome to Shut Up & Take My Money, your weekly wrap up of the world’s greatest gadgets and general cool stuff that you’d give up your third child for (most of the time they’re accidents anyway). It’s all about funky design this week and things that either go under water or take to the skies. Play on.


#1 Seawolf GoPro Submarine
Can’t afford a personal submarine? Get one for your GoPro instead. The Seawolf allows anyone with a GoPro to take to the depths to film their most adventurous underwater footage.


The sub is fully enclosed and allows for a depth of 30 feet or 10 metres. It won’t find you any monsters but it does transmit video back wirelessly to your phone or dedicated screen via a tethered connection to a mini surface boat.
Price: +$1,000/BUY

#2 Vintage TV Aquarium
Based off a genuine RCA Victor television unit is this very cool aquarium. It’s handmade and has a 7-litre capacity allowing for two small fish to swim freely until one kills the other. The unit also comes with an LED strip, red leafy tree, gravel bedding and tombstones.
Price: $450/BUY

#3 Banksy Mona Lisa Bazooka Artwork
Picture Mona Lisa’s smile. Now picture that same smile with a bazooka on her shoulder. Not so welcoming is she? Brings some quirky cool to your space with this Banksy art printed on canvas in the USA. Includes a 1.25″ pinewood frame.
Price: $55/BUY

#4 Gorilla Papertrophy
The elephant in the room gets a new companion – the gorilla in the room. The Mighty Papertrophy XXL Gorilla stands at 105cm tall and 103cm long and is a perfect art piece to the modern designer home. It’s basically a massive pixelated gorilla in your home that comes cut and pre-folded for you to stick together. The high quality paper is sturdy and dyed straight through for a quality finish. It certainly gives taxidermy a run for its money.
Price: $200/BUY

#5 Sixfold Beer Carrier
Move your drink in style with the Sixfold Beer Carrier. Made to nurture craft beer to its rightful owners, the swanky carrier is made using vegetable-tanned English Bridle leather, with spines made from American Walnut sourced from the Ocooch Mountains in Wisconsin.

Do away with your paper and plastic bags and roll with the cool kids.
Price: $78/BUY

#6 Bionic Bird
It’s a bird, it’s a plane. No really, it’s just a bird. A robotic one at that though. Control the carbon winged animal which really flaps to soar with your smartphone or tablet device via its app. It’s a great way to scare the crap out of real birds as you chase them down in the skies.
Price: $145/BUY
