SimPod-Simulator Do you love driving video arcades or driving simulators? If you do, then you will fall in love (and drool) with the Simpod 1 rom Simroom. It is a human-sized receptacle that brings avid gamers to another dimension, the world of racing.

The SimPod is a huge Formula 1 simulator that is designed to lock the gamer inside the race track environment using a gul wing door similar to today’s sportscars and a domed gaming screen that gives you a 360-degree view of the gaming environment.

The machine will occupy a big space at home but it looks really nice. The frame and panels are made from a combo of aluminum and silver with features that can be added as options by the consumer.

Who does not want this in his room? The only issue is that you need to burn about $25,000 to enjoy SimPod 1 Simulator.

Aside from hosting poker games at home, I also work from home. I spend several hours in front of the computer to earn a good living and it is my partner in my pursuit of a good life. I stumbled upon this great idea of EXOpc and what can be our office desk of the near future.

EXOpc is set launch their EXOdesk which is practically my dream interactive desk. It is very functional and it really looks good whatever you want to do with it.

The EXOdesk is actually a computer built similar to the Microsoft Surface. It has a generous space of 40 inches on which you can drag, touch, and manipulate objects on your virtual desk.

Click on the video below which gives you an idea that you can make use of apps, feed streams, and tap a virtual keyboard.

According to some reports, the EXOdesk is set for its official launch by next year and will have a sticker price of around $1,299. This sounds like a good deal if you compare it to the new Microsoft Surface which will go for $8,900.

Cell Phones Just Got a Little More Luxurious!

finger-touching1Okay, I am going to be honest. This item is one of the coolest things I have ever seen in my whole life. It is like every super techno scifi espionage action flick ever. The Finger Touching Concept Phone — need I say more? Well, of course I do!

It is the closest we can get to being bionic these days, really — the phone straps onto your wrist, at which point you can take the whole “Talk to the hand!” concept to an entirely new level.

The phone works by using an actual digital hologram, which actually projects the keypad right onto your fingers; your knuckles act as separators. Unfortunately, to place a call, you have to use that rather annoying “omg, I’m so totally on the phone” gesture with your thumb and your pinkie, but hey, sometimes you gotta make sacrifices if you want to be high tech.

Who Says Luxury Can’t be Energy Efficient?

truled-tv1Even HDTVs are getting new age these days, cats — and, yes, energy efficient as well. Check out the Vizio TruLED HDTV — fifty five inches of TV watching goodness. And yes, it is energy efficient, considered to be a replacement for those TVs which still work on cathodes. In fact, this TV is even a replacement for the new flat screens.

And you know how much those flat screens cost, right? Well, at $2,200, the TruLED HDTV is not really as expensive as some of the others. It is not outrageously more expensive, anyway.

And ideally, of course, price is not going to matter, since the TV has nearly a thousand individual LEDs and boasts a two million to one ratio.

Meaning you will get a sick sharp picture while still somehow managing to be more energy efficient.

Fashionable Bluetooth Headset

The Bluetooth headsets that are out right now are something that are not fashion, not chic and certainly not something that I really want to wear in my ear.  However, there is a cure for that and it is called the Orb.  The Orb is actually the answer to all of my prayers in the Bluetooth department for it is

a piece of jewelry by day and a Bluetooth headset whenever a new call comes in … how neat is that?  We all know that the rich and the richer want to always look their best and I am the same way.  That is exactly why I am so excited for this little baby

Bluetooth ring to be come – 2010 folks!  How it works is that you can wear it as a ring and on the LCD screen, which is tiny but visible, the name will flash of the person that is calling and you can twist it, hook it over your ear and start talking!

This Bluetooth is not only small and quiet, but it is one Bluetooth that you can really hear out of and people can hear you … and it looks awesome!  Check it out, it’s only $125.00!

Spinning Your Records in Luxury

turntableSome of us still like our records, although we are running out of places to play them. Me, I love my dad’s record collection, and I would steal it in two seconds — if I had some way of playing them, of course. Sadly, my computer will not handle records. Of course, my problems would be solved if I could stumble over fifteen thousand dollars that I do not need to use for anything else.

Because that is the cost of this ELP Laser Turntable. The optical system is completely contact free and the left and right lasers are completely independent of one another. Plus, there is a button on the front of the machine while will allow you to adjust the laser quite easily.

The best parts? If you have a broken record, as long as all the pieces are assembled on the turntable, this player will still play it, and you no longer need to worry about skips caused by vibrations.

The Most Luxurious Laptop Ever

egoYou know, it’s pretty much par for the course that any laptop you buy these days is going to be expensive.  Even the heavily refurbished ones you get on eBay are prone to cost way more money than they should.  Still, I think we can all agree that if a laptop is actually worth a lot, if it’s really good, then it’s easier to feel okay about paying a lot of money for it.

But would you be willing to spend over three hundred thousand dollars for a laptop?  Specifically, would you be willing to pay $336,557.00?

That’s probably more than your house and, say, two cars cost, all put together, am I right?  Yeah, but the difference is, probably none of those things are practically covered in diamonds.

The innovative size and design alone make the Tulip E-Go laptop rather awesome — not quite luxurious, circles do not necessarily denote luxury, but it’s still pretty cool.  Plus, it has a high quality AMD 64 Turion processor, not to mention 1 GB PC3200.  Its graphics card is an ATI Radeon Xpress X2000, it has DDR RAM, its hard drive is a 100 GB SATA, and the display is twelve plus inches, a widescreen with a WXGA display.

And did we mention the diamonds?

Plasma TVs: The Bigger, the Better

panasonic-hd-plasma-televisionTelevisions have been getting progressively bigger over the years.  They have been getting clearer, sharper, and more highly defined.  But man … at this rate, we’re all going to have plasma screens the size of movie screens taking up entire walls in our living rooms!

Of course, I know quite a few people who’d love that.  I know quite a few people who would be happy just to have the 103 Inch Panasonic HD Plasma Television.  You cannot even imagine the scope of a television of this size — but the makers of it are very happy to tell you how you can imagine it.

I want you to think about this little (big) fun fact: Yao Ming, incredibly, very, very … very, very, very tall man in the MBA, is as long as this TV.  Turn it on its side, and they’d be the same height.

You can try out that theory — if you can get him to come over, of course.  Oh, and if you can afford the eighty thousand dollars this TV costs, not counting the cost of installation.
