#1 Paris Catacombs Airbnb

Living up to its reputation for offering up some of the world’s most unique places to stay, Airbnb have outdone themselves again, this time offering up the infamous Paris Catacombs – an underground cemetery for the dead – a single (and free) night’s stay for two brave souls. Besides sleeping under the dirt of Paris for Halloween, the deathly accommodation also features real exposed human skulls stacked closely to your bed. Sweet dreams indeed.

#2 PowerUp FPV Paper Airplane Drone

Turn your humble paper plane into a high-powered drone with the PowerUp piggy back unit created in partnership with Parrot. The unit which attaches to your paper plane features a wide-angle camera which can rotate 360-degrees like R2-D2 alongside a host of sensors to give it stable flight in auto-pilot mode. A special Head Mounted Display also allows for future VR extensions whilst the craft has a 90-metre range, top speed of 32km/h and flight time of 10 minutes. The frame is also made of carbon fibre and nylon for your piece of mind.
