Old is gold
Undoubtedly the world’s most unique gadget is the Ipad 2 Gold History Edition. Encrusted with 12.5 cts of ‘I’F’ Flawless diamonds, a total of 53 individually set sparkling gems dwell in the solid 24 carat Apple logo with the rear section formed in 24 carat gold weighing an immense 2,000 grams. Its main front frame is made from the over 75 million year old Ammolite, the oldest rock the world has to offer, sourced from Canada. However to make this masterpiece even more individual, sections of a 65 million year old T-REX Dinosaur’s thigh bone was splintered and then shaved into the Ammolite, then finished off with ultimate jewel, a single cut 8.5ct flawless diamond inlaid in its own platinum surround with 12 outer flawless diamonds.

All hands on deck
Wally’s new Ace displacement yacht will still provide plenty of room to stretch one’s legs while cruising the ocean waves. With 1,378 square feet (128 m2) of outside deck space spread over two decks and a 441 square foot (41 m2) interior saloon area contributing to a total square footage of 3,035 (282 m2), the Ace has 30 per cent more space than its nearest competitor of the same length. Designed as a true long-distance cruiser (its diesel engines can take passengers non-stop from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean) the Wally Ace is designed to be manageable without a professional crew. However, if you prefer some one else to take care of the sailing, the vessel has accommodations for four crew members, in addition to six to eight guests.

iShower while I sing
From iDevices, the iPeople behind the iGrill, comes iShower, a battery-powered, Bluetooth-enabled, water-resistant speaker for what its makers charmingly refer to as “aqua-centric environments”. The iShower can stream music from any Bluetooth-enabled Apple or Android device, apparently to an impressive range of up to 200 feet (60 meters). The iShower can be detached from its wall mounting (in your shower is recommended) for use anywhere one might be nervous of taking a smartphone — the beach or pool. The device runs on three AA batteries for a claimed 15 hours of streaming. That’s just about enough to sing your way through 125 showers. Or one pool party. The iShower is compatible with all Apple devices and costs US$99.99.
Ferrari with an e
EH Line calls its top-of-the-line Street Racer the “Ferrari” of its ebike range. The Street Racer looks to have created a new category of the fledgling electric assist bicycle and appears to have some innovative thought behind it. The Street Racer will support the rider to 45 km/h (28 mph) and the analogy with the Prancing Horse obviously runs to the styling and “pure roadster” positioning, high tech drive train and price tag. The body of the Street Racer is an aluminum monocoque and you can have the Street Racer in any colour scheme you desire.
