Get your credit cards out, it’s time to drop some hard earned moolah on the world’s finest gadgets and general money-grabbers (no, not your partner). Shut up, sit back and let these six cool toys take your money.
#1 Yamaha YXZ1000R ATV
Looking to take the off-beaten track? Do it with the latest mighty ATV from Yamaha. The YXZ1000R will ensure you devour scrubland like they were rolling hills. Anchored by a 998cc three-cylinder engine, raised suspension and a five-speed manual transmission, the recreational vehicle is heavily inspired by Yamaha’s ‘Humachine’ concept – the idea that a vehicle’s design should be an extension of the driver. All we know is that it looks like a hell of a lot of fun.
#2 Tabata HD Coffee Table
Tiring of the conventional old coffee table? The Tabata coffee table is bringing the forefront of technology to your home with a full 42-inch HD touchscreen embedded into the piece of furniture. The table runs Windows 8.1 and can be fully integrated with other devices via WiFi, Widi, Bluetooth and wireless display capabilities. Organised a game of poker and forgotten the poker set? Not a problem. The Tabata can hook up with smartphones and take care of that, all the while holding your snacks and drinks.
#3 Ferrolic By Zelf Koelman
Taking art to the next level is a stunning new device called the Ferrolic Display. It’s part clock, part steam punk decor for the home and is both refreshing and engaging to the eye. Created by Zelf Koelman, the display works by holding metallic Ferro Fluid that is controlled by strong electromagnets to create shapes and the time. The item is limited to just 24 samples so get in quick if you’re a die-hard fan of cool interior hero pieces.
#4 Bowers & Wilkins 800 Series Diamond Speakers
The audio maestros at Bowers & Wilkins have resurrected their high-end audio line with the new 800 Series Diamond Speakers. The new family of speakers feature a newly designed cabinet that is formed from a single curve reinforced with a solid aluminium spine. An aerofoil cone design is implemented to reduce distortion and maximise unprecedented levels of clarity. And good looks, might we add.
#5 1956 Porsche 356 A Carrera 1500 GS Coupe
Own yourself a classic in the form of a 356 A Carrera 1500 GS Coupe. Long name, but don’t be fooled, this is indeed a collector’s item that has been completely restored in Italy in 2005 with period-correct engine and running gear. Such is the quality of the rebuild that it also carries with it a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. 100hp, 816kg and a topspeed of 195km/h? Sounds like a ball of fun.
#6 Star Wars Millenium Falcon Quadcopter
Can’t be Hans Solo or Chewy? Fly their ship in quadcopter form instead. Air Hogs are kicking it oldschool with the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in a fun little R/C package. The device is suitable for all levels. The only downside is it won’t fly through space.
