Our Toys We Love issue last month featured 10 of our favorites and here are a few more we want to add to that list. The Toys We Love aren’t just for show–they’re powerful vessels of innovation that pack a punch on the track, in the water, or even in the air. Check out a few of our favorites in action.
Porsche’s world class team of designers and engineers developed the Porsche 918 Spyder from scratch, “beginning with a sheet of white paper.” Combining racing technology with everyday utility, it will become the “gene pool” for the next generation of Porsche sports cars. Here, watch it’s record-breaking run at the Nürburgring in Nürburg, Germany.
The private jet might just be the ultimate luxury toy. Take a tour of Donald Trump’s private Rolls Royce 757, complete with a myriad of no-expense-spared extras. Our favorites are the 24-karat gold-plated seatbelt buckles, Mr. Trump’s silk bedroom walls, and the regal Trump family crest repeated throughout.
A luxury lifestyle calls for the smartest technology around the clock. For your hours of rest and relaxation, the Balluga bed has you covered. It offers the basics of a luxury bed: firmness adjustment, temperature control, and four areas of massage. But the coolest part of this smart bed is its functionality as an innovative entertainment system that responds to your music, shows, movies, and hand motions (it even projects what you’re watching onto the ceiling!). Watch the video to see a demonstration of the Balluga bed at the 2014 Gadget Show in Birmingham, UK.
