The Chinese smartphone company Meizu have really pulled out all the stops for their latest device the Gravity Speaker ($199). Designed with the award-winning and famed Buddhist designers Hironao Tsuboi the Gravity Speaker is balanced atop a transparent block to give the speaker a weightless look. While light flows around the rest prism-like structure for a dynamic and eye-catching style and don’t worry it’s not all just looks the sound quality is amazing as well.

I'm never gonna buy this thing, but boy would I love to take it out for a spin. The Amphibious Sub-Surface Watercraft ($300K) is the latest offering from Hammacher Schlemmer. This watercraft comes with two tracks, controlled by dedicated 48-volt intercooled electric motors, that allow you to drive right of the trailer into the water. Once you're in, you have access to two areas of the craft. One area is a bouyant above-water hull with a cockpit that fits two, and provides a 180-degree surface view. The other is fully submersed, can hold two additional people, and provides spectacular underwater views. Two 24-volt lithium battery banks provide 110 hours of water operation and up to 8 hours on land.
