The Solid Gray Backpack ($180) looks as though it should be carried around by Luke Skywalker. The cool futuristic look also comes with some great functionality. The Solid Gray Backpack has a folding, lightweight hardshell, which is lined with EPDM foam. The curvature of the back makes for a comfortable fit. The internal straps are great for holding your laptop or tablet. And two additional compartments are available for your smaller items. If you pick one up don't forget to buy a hovercraft to go along with it.

Let's just say you have so much cash that you're running out of ways to spend it. Well, the team over at Schwinge might have a little something that'll wet your whistle. How about a flying pyramid that looks like a spaceship. I'm talking about their Schwinge HYSWAS Tetrahedron Superyacht ($TBA). Once this superyacht gains enough speed, it's lifted out of the water via side-mounted adjustable hydrofoils, which provides smooth long distance travel without the inconvenience of waves slamming into the side of the ship. An autopilot system controls roll forces and maintains foil born speed to help control pitch and heave. Even in the worst storms, this setup achieves virtually no slamming. Shwinge is working with a large superyacht yard to complete development of the project.[gallery type="rectangular" ids="22533,22532,22531"]

It's a 20" wheel with specific clearance requirements, so check out their Kickstarter page to see if your bike is an option.
