BASIC tech items aren’t for the mega-rich – here are some crazy gadgets they’re likely to get into instead.
What are the world’s 1 percent populace likely to spend their money on? We have a few ideas.
Here are four of the most ridiculous tech items only the ultra-rich can afford.
Triton personal submarine
For some rich people, having cars, boats and planes isn’t enough – that’s where Triton’s personal submarine comes into play.
The “submersibles,” as the company calls them, have been designed by a professional team to help you explore the ocean in comfort.
Most Triton liveaboards – there are quite a few to choose from – sleep up to two people and can easily be parked in a superyacht garage.
A typical Triton submersible has the ability to dive to 660 feet – five times deeper than Scuba.
Those subs will only cost the elite about $3.5 million — and that’s just the launch cost.
‘Smart’ Gucci ring
If you love wearing 18k gold and want to monitor your sleep activity, then the Gucci x Oura ring is for you.
Starting at $850, this ring analyzes your REM sleep, nocturnal heart rate, and deep sleep to optimize your bedtime.
“With 24/7 heart rate monitoring, seven temperature sensors and sleep analysis, the Smart Ring decodes each and every day through three daily metrics that measure sleep, activity and readiness,” Gucci writes on its website.
If you want to be healthier and have money to blow, you might as well do that with designer jewelry.
If you’re rich and want to know what it’s like to fly, you can easily spend $150,000-$250,000 on your own jetpack.
The next generation Martin Jetpack has a load capacity of 221 lbs and an hour and a half run time.
Users can also fly at impressive speeds of up to 62 miles per hour and an altitude of 5,000 feet.
And for safety measures, the device is equipped with a fail-safe parachute that can be deployed to a depth of 6 meters.
Bang & Olufsen Beolab 90 speakers
If you’re looking for an entertainment system that doesn’t look like an entertainment system, look no further than Bang & Olufsen’s Beolab 90 speaker duo.
The pair of 50-inch speakers, designed with sleek, minimalist lines, double as genuinely expensive-looking pieces of furniture.
And that makes sense considering the speakers cost $110,000.
The speakers are offered in five different colors and are “built for audiophiles” with 8,200 watts per speaker and 18 premium drivers.
