People often say that the most responsible thing for a man to do is to learn how to save. Luckily, you’re a magnificent bastard and magnificent bastards can do both whilst revelling in the spoils of life. Today we’re doing the latter with the coolest tech and gear from around the world.

#1 Woolsey Ping Pong Table

Arguably one of the most baller table tennis setups at the moment is this walnut wood creation from Sean Woolsey. Crafted for design enthusiast first and ping pong players second, the Woolsey Ping Pong Table is a multifunctional beast which can look good doing its job whilst also doubling as a slick dining or conference table. The table itself satisfies International Table Tennis Federation specs and features matte black paddles exquisitely crafted from walnut and maple. A powder-coated steel net also helps this set stand apart from the crowd.

Price: $9,000/BUY


#2 Burberry x Bowers & Wilkins T7 Gold Edition

Lovers of fine fashion and quality sound will be glad to see that Burberry have teamed up with premium audio maker Bowers & Wilkins for a stylish new T7 Bluetooth speaker. Called the T7 Gold Edition, the speaker uses high-resolution Bluetooth aptX for streaming high-quality audio that’s guaranteed to fill the room. The speaker receives 18-hours of playback for every charge and comes in gold with a choice of a custom black leather Burberry case or tan suede.

Price: $995/BUY

#3 Lexus 2054 From Minority Report

We’re still a fair way off the year 2054 but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a slice of the future. Some genius from eBay has gone off and built a custom replica of the Lexus 2054 car from Tom Cruise’s 2002 film, Minority Report. It’s considered street legal in the U.S but other countries will need to check with their road registry. The Lexus 2054 is powered by a 2.7-litre Porsche V6 Porsche and features all the creature comforts including the film’s suicide door layout.

Price: $128,300/BUY

#4 Bose QC35 Wireless Headphones

The purveyors of premium sound have finally cut the cable for their best-selling noise-cancelling headphones. The Bose QC35 Wireless Headphones features the same comfort fitting around-ear design known from the QuietComfort range. The instant NFC pairing also makes streaming a much quicker affair before users can enjoy up to 20 hours of wireless listening. Wired listeners can expect up to 40 hours of battery life. The QC35 will be offered in silver of black hues.

Price: $499/BUY

#5 ColorWare 1983 Retro Apple

Give your Macbook the ColorWare treatment with this awesome throwback from the Apple customisation service. It’s not just a cover either with ColorWare offering an entire Macbook, ten limited edition samples to be precise, to get nostalgia fans excited over. The look obviously harks back to the 80s off-white colour of old Apple machines right down to the rainbow logo. You can lock down your ColorWare retro Macbook for a hefty US$3,000 knowing that you’ll be only one of ten people in the world to have one.

Price: $350/BUY


#6 Iron Pirate Ducati SS 750 Kraken

Take your Ducati cafe racer to post-apocalyptic new levels with this cool custom by Iron Pirate Garage. Based on the top-heavy Ducati Supersport 750, the bike has been completely stripped down to make it a lot more nimble. A rear subframe, fuel tank and exhaust have been custom fabricated by Iron Pirate whilst the yellow decals gives nod to the 750 Imola.

Price: $TBA/BUY
