Rolls-Royce’s Wraith Luggage Collection Costs More Than A Regular Luxury Sedan

rollys-royce-wraith-luggage-collection-11

If you’re going to drop six digits on a Rolls-Royce vehicle, you might be tempted to think “well, might as well drop five digits on a set of luggage.” That’s at least what the folks at Rolls-Royce are thinking with their Wraith Luggage Collection, for which they’re asking you to part with $45,854. That’s right, for the price of a well equipped luxury sedan you can get yourself a set of 6 bags to complement your brand new $300,000 RR Wraith. The set consists of

Two Grand Tourer valises, three Long Weekend bags and a Garment Carrier. The set was designed by Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke Design Studio to complement the cars. This plush luggage set will be available only with Rolls-Royce dealers, emphasizing its luxury credentials. The set is exclusively designed to complement the car’s look, so there are many points of symmetry between the bags and the car. For instance the stitching on steering wheel of the Wraith and handle of the weekend bag are identical, perfected by Haute Couture clothing. Obviously, the brand didn’t miss self-righting wheels and to emblazon the double-R logo almost everywhere, from wheels to zips.

Even if we did have that kind of cash lying around, we’re not sure how we’d feel about putting $40,000 bags in the cargo hold of a commercial plane, but then again we suspect the target market is here is the ‘private plane’ kind of crowd. Oh, and if $45,854 didn’t seem expensive enough, you should know the price goes higher is you want to customize the bags to your liking.

Anker’s (Not So) Portable Power Pack

powerhouse-1

There are portable power packs, and then there’s Anker’s PowerHouse. It’s about the size (7.9 x 6.5 x 5.7 inches) and weight (9.3 lbs) of a concrete construction brick, so might weigh things down a bit should you decide to toss it in a backpack. That being said, what you’re trading for that all that heft is a massive charging capacity. At 120,000 mAh, the 434Wh behemoth is able to fully recharge a laptop 15 times over. For reference, an iPhone 6 Plus has a 2,950 mAh battery. It outputs all that electricity through a 12V socket, an AC socket, or 4 USB-ports. It’s meant to take with you when you’re off grid and power your electronics for long periods. The PowerHouse is able to feed most things, like stereos, TVs, and lamps, but it might choke on higher-voltage appliances like toasters or hair-dryers. Still, no one is expecting you to try to blow-dry your hair while your husbands sets up the tent, so the point is moot.

It’s $500.

It Might Get Loud

speaker3

The following article is brought to you by Raghav Govindarajan and 1ByOne. -Ed.

We’ve all been in those situations where we needed our music to be just a bit louder or even portable. I know I’ve been to social events like picnics and small parties where I need that extra oomph in my music. I was able to find that extra firing power in the form of a seven inch speaker made by 1byone.

The 1byone Wireless Portable Bluetooth Speaker is a pretty small speaker, relatively speaking. It is about the size of my HTC One M8 in terms of length, and width. It is a very light speaker, and I will admit that initially threw me off. I did not think that this tiny speaker would be capable of producing a respectable sound, but boy was I wrong. Syncing the speaker was not a difficult task at all, it was as simple as holding the power button until you heard the confirmation that the speaker was on. It automatically starts searching for devices, and I was able to immediately able to sync to it with no issues. After that, I took a look at the interesting interface. The top of the device has 4 buttons that act as the control panel, with the rest of the circles acting as an aesthetically pleasing effect.

Floor Cleaning Slippers

slipper-genie-640x533

You guys remember the Baby Mop? It was a onesie lined with microfibre finger pads that cleaned the floor as your toddler crawled around. That was an awesome product! Well now you can have the same sort of “innovation” for the rest of the family. The Floor Cleaning Slippers’ soles are lined with microfibre finger pads as well, which pick up dust and small debris as you walk around. Sure, it’s only going to clean the most walked-around areas in your home, leaving corners to collect all the dust bunnies you didn’t pick up. But we suppose it’s better than nothing. The soles do detach easily for cleaning. And at $5 for a pair, who not get one? Oh… ‘sexism alert’: they only come in ladies sizes 6 to 9.

The Igloo Trailmate Cooler Is One Serious Cooler

igloo-trailmate

Planning a party on the beach? You’re gonna need a cooler. You’re also going to need two guys with some muscle to carry the thing down from the parking lot. But not if you’ve opted for the Igloo Trailmate Cooler, which features oversized never-flat wheels that give the thing 10 inches of clearance, allowing one man to simply pull it to its destination. It’s a good thing too because this cooler packs a lot of stuff, with enough room in its 70 quart container for “112 cold ones”. The quality insulation means ice will remain unmelted for up to four days, while a water-resitant storage area will keep your personal items dry while you frolic. The carry handle telescopes out to give you a butler tray upon which to place a drink or three, and tie-down loops make it easy to carry extra gear up top. It’s $300.

Breakfast Sandwich Maker Machine

eggs-machine-1

The following is a featured article. -Ed.

Steps. That’s what you’ want to avoid when getting up in the morning, when you’re barely able to comprehend what planet you’re on. Steps to do this, or steps to do that. It would be infinitely better if all the steps could be combined into one, so that you wouldn’t have to think about what you’re supposed to be doing. Kind of like how this Automatic Eggs Hamburger Maker combines all the steps that go into the preparation of a breakfast sandwich right into one. It has room for the eggs, which will fry in their own pan, as well as a separate compartment for the meat, and for the bread. Just toss all the ingredients in their respective place and the sammich maker takes care of the rest. The best part is that it’s only $36.18 and if you use the coupon code “GBHOME12” you can get an additional 12% off. As a matter of fact, if you check out this page, you’ll see a list of popular kitchen items that will also work with the same 12% off coupon.

This Swiss Watch Has A Drop Of The World’s Oldest Cognac In It

Cognac-Gautier-1762-and-Armin-Strom-Cognac-Swiss-Watch-Featured-image-672x372

Why? We don’t know. But it looks like independent Swiss watchmaker Armin Strom, and its chief horologist Claude Greisler, decided it would be a good idea to convince the owners of the world’s oldest known Cognac bottle, the Cognac Gaultier 1762, to part with 40 drops of its content. Each drop was then carefully inserted in the mechanism of the Cognac Watch. It serves no functional purpose, other than to perhaps impress your rich friends, kind of like Romain Jerome’s Moon watch. We don’t know how much each of the 40 pieces cost, but all have been sold in an exclusive resale event prior to the official launch at Baselworld on March 20, 2016.
