Be mature they said. Invest in things that won’t depreciate they said. Fortunately, we’re that little voice in your head that’s always there to remind you that life is meant to be enjoyed. So drop some dough on six of this week’s coolest bank-breakers.

#1 Air Bonsai

Use the force to levitate your favourite bonsai tree. Well not exactly. A Japansese artist and designer based in Hoshinchu has created a levitating bonsai tree, much like the levitating speakers that have been in the market. An energy base is used to generate the magnetic field to spin “little star” which can consist of your finest foliage, plants, pines or mosses. You can choose a “little star” base of either a moss ball or lava rock. Mr. Miyagi would be proud.
Price: $200/BUY

#2 Richard Mille RMS05 Fountain Pen

You know the Richard Mille name for producing some of the world’s most elaborate timepieces. Now you can get the same in the RMS05 Fountain Pen, likely the most complicated pen in the world. Mimicking its time keeping roots, the pen features an in-house calibre which extends the pen’s 18k white gold nib when the button is pushed. When the pen is capped, the circular-grained and rhodium plated gears within the mechanism is reset and rewound. The body is made from the same carbon found in competition yachts and the mechanism features micro-blasted and satin-brushed surfaces.
Price: $105,000/BUY


#3 Porsche Classic Navigation Radio

Love your classic Porsche but loathe the lack of modern creature comforts? Spruce it up with this official Porsche Classic Navigation Radio. Designed to fit seamlessly into the DIN-1 slot of older Porsche 911s between the 1960s to the mid ’90s, the unit features optimised radio reception and a 3.5-inch touchscreen display.
Price: $1,300/BUY

#4 Fender In-Ear Monitors

Legendary American guitar maker Fender are pushing their audio prowess into the world of personal sound with their latest line of in-ear headphones which promises to deliver unprecedented levels of distortion-free sound quality. The DXA1 features titanium micro drivers whilst the top of the line FXA7 Pro showcases dual HDBA tweeters and custom 9.25mm rare Earth drivers.
Price: $100-$500/BUY

#5 EcoSphere Close Aquatic Ecosystem

Fish tanks are so 2010. The EcoSphere Close Aquatic Ecosystem is a ball of water wonderland featuring a host of tiny marine wildlife such as shrimp, algae and micro-organisms. It’s self sustaining meaning you don’t need to feed them everyday like your usual pets. Simply fuel it with indirect sunlight at room temperature and the eco-system will flourish for up to three years.
Price: $250/BUY

#6 Nissan Rogue Warrior

Fear no blizzard with Nissan‘s wild snow concept based on the brand’s more pedestrian-friendly Rogue SUV. Its wheels are replaced by a Dominator track system measuring 15″ across, 30″ high, and 48″ long. This sturdy track designed to climb anything includes snow guards, Xtronic AWD and a 23″ ground clearance.
Price: $TBC/BUY
