Up your Instagram game with this ultra-exclusive tech…
In the digital age, ‘Instagrammability’ is the most important factor when millennials are selecting hotels, clothes and tech. Here’s five luxury gadgets guaranteed to earn you baller status on social media …
Master & Dynamic x Michael Jackson
New York, the concrete jungle where dreams are made of, is home to Master & Dynamic. They make the world’s finest wireless headphones (no skips or stutters) and have just launched a limited edition in honour of the ‘King of Pop’ (their words). The black and gold MW50+ 2-in-1 wireless headphones feature an iconic image of Michael Jackson plus interchangeable ear cups. Perfect for pairing with the new iPhone X.
The Champagne Gun
The Champagne Gun – yes, it exists – is possibly the most effective way to get a lavish party started. Part Instagrammable gadget, part megalomaniacal booze-cannon. Invented by a French nightlife entrepreneur, this gadget increases the pressure of a magnum of champers, allowing you to spray the fizz precisely 23ft for up to 45 seconds at a time. The adult Super Soaker is a big hit from Miami to Dubai, and those of you who visit a certain London club might have spotted one. Bad news for your outfit; good new for your dry cleaner.
Music Life x Jarre Aerobull HD1
How much is that doggy in the window? Er, quite a lot actually. This mad-looking sculpture doubles as a wireless speaker. Designed with the help of DJ Jean-Michel Jarre, the limited edition gold (well, chrome) Jarre Aerobull HD1 blasts out a massive 200-watts of high-fidelity audio though its sunglasses-shaped speakers. Fans of ‘the big dog’ can pick up this exclusive woofer through London department stores such as Harrods and Selfridges.
HP Spectre x360
No, the HP Spectre isn’t anything to do with James Bond. But it’s certainly classy enough to be issued to 007. The sleek x360 laptop comes in a choice of black and ash copper, black and rose gold. It’s ridiculously thin, insanely powerful and features a fingerprint reader for spy-grade security. Other highlights include Bang & Olufsen speakers, a 4K micro-edge touchscreen and a marathon 11-hour battery life.
Lilium flying car
So you’re worried about being mown down by a self-driving car? Nevermind robot Ubers, the 21st century is set to become the age of the flying car. Thanks to German company Lilium, the flying car is no longer science fictions. This baby is all-electric and capable of vertical take-off and landing, so can you put down on the roof of your favourite members’ club or zip off to an Oxfordshire pub for lunch. Top speed is 186mph and it’s due on sale soon.
