Four mindblowingly expensive (and maybe pointless) gadgets for the Super-Rich

When the sky’s the limit in terms of price, you can find incredible gadgets out there to cater for your every whim.  Here are four must haves for millionaires in 2015.

Moon Audio Opulence – £648,000

Are you sick and tired of using your ears to hear? Course you are, that’s why Moon Audio have come up with the barnstormingly expensive Opulence speaker.   A gadget so pretentious that the website claims it “delivers music into the listener’s brain, bypassing the ears”.  Music delivered direct to your brain….  If that all sounds a bit like the Riddler plugging his TV box into your neural cortex, don’t worry – only 10 were ever made, so they aren’t set for world domination just yet.
SAMSUNG 85″ series 9 ultra high definition led TV £34,999.00

Cloud – Smart $ 3,360.00

Exo Gauntlet 2.5    $5000

Have you ever wanted to experience ‘significant crushing strength’… over ten times that you’d usually be capable of?  Well, the Exo Gauntlet 2.5 can make that a reality using  a combination of tiny motors and 16 gram CO2 cartridges.  The average human has a grip strength of about 20 PSI, but with the Exo Gauntlet your potential crushing power leaps to 250 PSI.   It’s hard to imagine a need for these, other than as cool novelty can crushers or instruments of torture, but if you need a super strength mechanical hand in your life, you can expect to wait up to 7 weeks for it to be made – longer at their busiest times: Halloween and Christmas.
