This is really nothing more than a tease, isn’t it? If we were given a shiny new lamp and gave it a rub and a genie popped out and we weren’t particularly World Peace-y with our three wishes, here’s what we would probably ask for, since chances are we’re never going to end up in the tax bracket that goes hand in hand with being able to afford these kinds of gadgets.
STELLE AUDIO PILLAR
Usually sound systems in the home are more than a little cluttery, sometimes it’s just a load of wires leading to big black or dark grey rectangles in all corners of the room. In short, speakers are usually something we want out of the way, heard but not seen. Not the case with the Stelle series of “audio pillars”, which are specifically designed to be pretty enough to be placed front and centre of your room, and have a killer sound coming out of them, too. Prices start around $349, without whatever they most cost they get them sent to your front door.
With only 20 in existence at the moment (one is owned by none other than Sylvester Stallone, and another by someone “really quite high up in Apple”), this is the most pipe-dreamy entry on the list, with prices kicking off around $100,000 – yes, you read that correctly – and Fuoriserie only planning on making another 10 before calling it quits on this particular line. Probably got something to do with the fact that they’re hand-made from airplane-grade parts.
You’ve had a moment of genius, but you’ve got no paper on you. You grab at a napkin to write it down, but that could easily get lost or fall apart before you get a chance to take it down properly back home or in the office. Solution? The Equil Pen! For a relatively cheap (compared to other gadgets on this particular list) price of $149, the pen keeps track of what you’ve been writing, no matter what you’ve been writing it on, and sends a copy of the writing or drawing via the interwebs to your iOS or Mac devices. Simples, and awesome!
