TRAXXAS XO-1 RC CAR

This is just ridiculous, I didn’t even think that an RC Car can go this was, Traxxas make some fun RC Cars but this one is above and beyond what they have come up with. This is RC Super Car is even faster then a Real-life supercar, and its expensive for a RC Car too price at $1’150 which is on the high side. It’s capable of 100 mph speeds and boasts a 0-60 time of just 2.3 seconds, thats insane. The X0-1 features an aerodynamic body, a big block brushless motor, an integrated speed, RPM, temperature, and voltage telemetry system that works with an iPhone or iPod touch mounted in the controller’s docking base to give you unheard of control over your mini-ride, and heavy-duty AWD drivetrain so you don’t burn the thing up in the first weekend. From the looks of the video below you really do need a race track to drive this car, if it hits the wall at the speed its capable of say good bye to $1’150.

Dottling Colosimo

I saw this and thought it looked like a cute safe, I even thought it was a very cool piggy bank. I got up closer to it only to realize that this was a watch winder safer, a ridiculously cool one at that. It looked like a retro mini safe from the 1950’s only when I walked up to it did I know what it was. It even opened and closed like a real safe with all the locks getting into place.

After doing a little research I realized that this watch winder safe is made by Dottling, and you would only probably get it for a super expensive watch since it costs $30’000. And here I thought it was a cool looking small piggy bank, I was way off, I even looked for the slot above. People usually get watch winders for their automatic watches so they are always charged since they require movement and these winders move periodically to keep it charged, you can control that. Even though it turned out to be insanely expensive I still thought it was cool.

Petiole Hammock

Hammock

I’m a huge fan of hammocks, I always like laying on them, when weather permits in Kuwait. There are a lot of cool hammocks out there, but this is the coolest and most industrial looking one yet. Its built by hand in Sweden and takes to four to five weeks to make, looks like a half circle and two people can lay it in comfortable. It directly mounts into concrete and supports 250 KG perfectly, the shocking part is that it costs as much as a car at $35’000 but this is the price of a hand crafted piece of industrial art.

The Maltese Falcon

Now this is a definition of a super yacht, at 289-ft the Maltese Falcon is the world’s largest and most expensive sailing yacht. I’m not one who is that interested in Sailing yachts but this is not an ordinary yacht, with technology integrated into every corner. Especially that mast system which can propel the yacht across the Atlantic in 10 days. Even the cockpit of this ship reminds me of the bridge on the Star Ship Enterprise from Star Trek, at a moments notice it will take warp into space with all those buttons and cool seats.

I do like the interior of this beautiful ship, I don’t even know how many rooms it has and how many people it can handle but it is amazing for sure. And it was for a low price of $99 Million, I’m just curious as to fees of parking this behemoth.

Knight XV

Now this is an interesting machine, you would think with the economy and gas prices as it is that they would make a higher end hybrid, but not for Conquest Vehicles. They have made a monster of an SUV, dutefully named KNIGHT XV, and their catch phrase is “Are you ready to be Knighted?”

At $295’000 only 100 of these are made a year, with a V10 heart pumping 400 bhp and 500 torque. And all I want to do is drive this monster into a wall and see what KITT has to say.
