Forget your stomach. Gadgets are the way to a man’s heart. That’s why we’ve retrieved six of the best right here to keep your tech addiction happy. From a personal submarine, to gold plated skis to a smart go-kart for the big kid. This is Shut Up & Take My Money. And we be taking your money.

#1 Triton 6600/2 Submarine

Every man needs a submarine in their life. If you’ve got a spare couple of million laying around, make it the Triton 6600/2. It’s a personal submergible craft with the thickest transparent acrylic hull ever made. What this means is that you’ll be able to dive deeper and longer without your unit crumbling like a Coke can or your head exploding. The 6600/2 can reach depths of 6,600ft or 2,000m, carry another passenger and travel up to 5.6km/h for ten hours. Oxygen time is rated at 96 hours so there’s be no rush to get back to the real world. There’s also air-conditioning because everyone needs one of those in their sub.

#2 Foil Oro Nero Gold Skis

Aspen won’t know what hit them when you rock up with these insane 14K gold plated skis. It’s not all show though. The Foil Oro Nero Gold Skis are made using a topsheet of 8,000-year-old certified Bog Oak, layered with a graphite nanotech base. The core consists of Ash and Paulownia whilst bamboo is used as sidewalls with stainless steel edges. Talk about performance skiing. The skis are custom made for each client and offered in limited quantities. They’ve also thrown in a bespoke travel bag made of premium leather in a Tuscany hue.
Price: $50,000/BUY


#3 Actev Arrow Smart-Kart

You’re never too big for a go-kart. Especially if you can fit in one designated for kids. The Arrow Smart Kart is no gimmick. It packs two independent 250-Watt electric motors, a sturdy steel chassis, and can reach a top speed of about 20km/h. Still not won over? How about the inclusion of built-in WiFi and GPS. The connectivity is meant for parents to geo-fence driving course boundaries. Not that you’ll need it. Just stream tunes and drive into the sunset.
Price: $500/BUY

#4 Reflex Smartphone

Flexible screens will be the next great frontier of smartphones. One of the first to trial this technology is the Reflex Smartphone, a bendable and multi-touch device that can slot just about anywhere. The device uses a 720 Flexible OLED screen from LG and is powered by Android 4.4. The device works by both traditional input or via screen bending in which the force is detected and responded to accordingly. It’s just a concept for now but expect to see this technology filtering into Samsung and Apple devices in the near future.

#5 Samsung Gear 360

360 degree video capture is all the rage these days and Samsung have joined the party with their very own device called the Gear 360. The whole device is made to be simple from its operation to its design. Set in a spherical shape, the Gear 360 only has three buttons. On the inside it packs two ultra-wide lenses on either side of the body with a 195-degree field of view. Image capture resolution is a massive 30 megapixels whilst video resolution comes in at 3840×1920 pixels. The final video can then be stitched and created with an accompanying app. The Gear 360 will be compatible with the latest Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge devices.

Each chair is custom handmade using original parts from actual Vespas. The chair component of the furniture is also pretty cool too, featuring recline options, a reinforced internal structure, slick ergonomics and soft tread wheels. Get rolling.
