3 of the most ridiculous luxury gadgets
Did you know there are people right now who think smart phones are an unnecessary indulgence? Who don’t find comfort in their every social connection happen via Facebook on a cell phone? I know, it’s shocking. But I can’t imagine what those same people would say after taking a look at some of these truly ridiculous luxury gadgets.
Vertu Ti ($13,000)
Next time you’re balking at spending $300 on a phone, imagine spending $13,000. That’s how much this Android handset from Vertu costs. The Vertu Ti is made of a scratchproof sapphire crystal screen and encased in lightweight titanium. If that wasn’t enough, the rear of the case is mostly leather, for an enhanced grip. The Vertu Ti even has a 24/7 concierge service that assists in ticket buying and restaurant booking. But be warned, it’s only included for one year. After that, you’ll have to pay even more.
Kohler Numi Comfort Height Toilet ($5,978.00)
For something a little more “practical” there’s the Kohler Numi Comfort Height Toilet. With a motion activated cover and seat, advanced bidet functionality, integrated air dryer and deodorizer and a heater seat and foot warmer — the Numi is the height of toilet comfort. It even has the ability to play FM radio stations and can stream wirelessly with any Bluetooth enabled device. Or you can just store your music on the included SD card or plug your iPod into the auxiliary cable slot, you know, the plug-in every toilet should have.
There are even luxury gadgets so rare you can’t even own them, like this diamond encrusted vacuum cleaner by Electrolux. Featuring 3730 Swarovski crystals, it is truly the most luxurious vacuum cleaner ever created. Unfortunately it was made as a one-off, though apparently another could be created if Electrolux received a request for it. I know buying things like vacuum cleaners usually gets a guy in a lot of trouble but maybe this is something to think about next Valentine’s Day.
So you see, compared to these gadgets, buying a smartphone or a laptop is sort of like buying a Coke at the local convenience store! Right? Okay maybe not, but at least you have examples of some truly outlandish gadgets next time someone hassles you about your tech-buying habits.
