World’s Most Expensive Ashtray

“The Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai. It’s world famous and ranked seven stars with four-digit nightly room rates, so naturally people get curious. For one, we’re curious about what makes their hotel so worth that money, and what perhaps they might sell in the gift shop. Well, the latter question has somewhat been answered for us by a weird little website called Opulent Items. Specializing in over-the-top luxury gifts, they’ll sell you anything from an inflatable ‘iceberg’ to a $20 shower curtain, as Racked discovered yesterday. What they also dug up is this ashtray, priced at $7,250 and embedded with three diamonds.” w/ photos

Wearable Boom Box

San Francisco artist/software engineer Joe Andolina is actually calling this wearable audio system a ‘Speaker Vest,’ but from everything I can tell, it’s really more like a backpack, just built into a vest. Whatever it’s called, you’ll definitely draw attention walking down the street with this booming audio system strapped to your body. It’s actually constructed from a Dainese Gilet Cali Tessuto vest, with a Boss audio Bass900 subwoofer strapped to the back. I like the two little satellite speakers that sit over your shoulders while wearing this thing. Power is supplied by a 10-cell rechargeable battery belt.” w/ photos

Wacky Laundering

“Adulthood can be a challenging time filled with worries, responsibilities and, perhaps worst of all, household chores. Clever Kingston University design MA student Lee Wei Chen has clearly realised this, and has come up with a perfect solution to liven up the depressing, yet necessary ritual of laundry. Bringing the childhood charm of video game arcades ino the dull, domestic sphere of adulthood, Chen’s amusement washing machine puts an entirely new, well, spin on laundry.” w/ photos
