How many times in your life will you have the opportunity to buy an entire set of life-size robots to take over your home? Well, if you happen to have $54,900 (USD) lying around gathering dust, now is your chance.
We were just saying how you might be able to output your own robotic limbs using 3D printing, but if that’s too advanced for you, why not buy yourself an already fully-functional Terminator arm instead.
To get more publicity for its upcoming MMORPG Age of Wulin, developer Snail Games held an online auction of one off in-game items. And more publicity they got, thanks to one die-hard and deep-pocketed fan, who paid $16,000 (USD) for a sword.
If I had a million bucks to spare, I’d probably open up a business, or invest it in something that could make the money grow. Then I’d eventually donate a percentage to charity, set aside some money for a vacation with my family, get a whole new wardrobe, and probably get a lot of more stuff that I normally wouldn’t.
We will never see another movie like the original Star Wars again. The plot, writing and the directing were amazing. Not to mention the groundbreaking models and visual effects (that they had to work hard for, instead of using CGI) that gave it an amazing look and feel.
If you are the sort of geek that likes space travel, you have to be enamored by the manned missions to the moon in the 60’s and 70’s. Of all the missions slated to put astronauts on the moon, the one that famously didn’t make it was Apollo 13.
This is really bizarre to me, but I bet some rich Apple geek will snap this right up. Apparently, the original contract from April 1, 1976 that established Apple Computer Corp. is hitting the auction block at Sotheby’s.
If you’ve got some deep pockets, and are looking for something that you know nobody else will be getting as a holiday gift this year, then you might want to head on over to Los Angeles this December, for a chance to own some original props from the Back to the Future films.
I guess it’s true that money can buy almost everything but happiness. You can buy a $92,000 frog-inspired watch, a bejeweled pen that’s priced at close to a million, and an 11-foot iOS dock with a price tag of around half a million dollars.
Here’s a rare piece of cosplaying accessory that would go well with the foam pickaxe. This Minecraft avatar cardboard head was one of only three such heads given away at E3 2011. You might be thinking to yourself, meh, that’s not so boss, I could print one on my own.
The old PS3 models occasionally had a problem with overheating, so when modder and PS3HAX administrator Pirate decided to make his second PS3 laptop mod, he decided to install a liquid-cooling system to ensure that it won’t be fried.
A pair of decorative pistols was snatched up at a Christie’s auction last May. Instead of shooting bullets, a bird pops up in each pistol when their triggers are pulled. Sounds like a pair of lame toys right?
How much would you pay for an old Leica? Hundreds? Thousands? How about $1.9 million (€1.3 million)? That’s how much this Leica 0-Serie Nr.107 fetched at auction. This camera is one of only 25 that were made back in 1923.
For some reason, I always thought the first transparent computer Apple ever made was the original Bondi blue iMac. Well, it turns out that back in the late 1980s, a handful of Mac SE computers were made without any pigmentation, so you could see clear through them.
