Would you expect anything less from the Italians? The Ciclotte Exercise Bike ($10,600-$12,000) is more of a minimalistic work of art than a piece of exercise equipment. One of the biggest features is the Epicycloid transmission. It was trademarked by Ciclotte and features a dual satellite epicycloid system that multiplies the number of flywheel rotations which creates a high-intensity magnetic field. This system perfectly replicates the effort of pushing on pedals when your riding on the road. It also has a touch screen display that allows you to set 12 levels of resistance and a transmission that can be unhooked to increase or decrease resistance while pedaling. Incredible bike to say the least, but for 10 large I'd be looking at a used jeep and use the leftover for p90x.
If you haven't seen this movie then rent it right now. Slap Shot ($8) is regarded by some, as the greatest sports movie ever. The movie stars Paul Newman as the coach of the Chiefs, a struggling minor-league hockey team. In order to build up the attendance to the games he hires three brothers to take out the competition. The aluminum foil scene is quick, but it's an instant classic. The movie is moving, funny, and hard hitting. Like I said, if you haven't seen it order it today.
The Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition Camera ($1500) puts classic styling on a modern camera.

The Outdoor Patio Arch Swing ($775) is the perfect addition to any backyard, patio, or deck. It is made from sturdy wood and measures 126 x 63 inches which is big enough to fit 2-3 people. It also comes with a large canopy thats built into the frame which will provide shade even on the hottest days.
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.
The 2016 Trion Nemesis ($1M) will be the first car from the American supercar manufacturer. The Nemesis is expected to start production February 2015 and ramp up full scale by January 2015. It features a 9.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine paired with an eight-speed manual transmission that produces and insane 2,000 horses. The powerplant can get the car going from 0-62 mph in only 2.8 seconds. Top speed is 280 mph. If the Nemesis is actually tested at those speeds when produced it will be faster than a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. They've also announced hybrid and fully electric version will also be available. Only fifty of these will be made so if you have a mil laying around get your order soon, because I'm sure they'll sell out petty fast.
