Grovemade's New Walnut iPad Sleeve Features Sleek Geometric Contouring

Own It
BY : JustLuxe Team | 2014

Grovemade's new Walnut iPad Sleeve (which officially hit the market today) is actually made using handcrafted wood veneer with geometric contouring, giving it a cool optical illusion effect that we love. Premium German wool lines the case so your iPad or MacBook screen doesn't get scratched, and there's also a leather and brass strap that is used to remove the gadget from your sleeve. Also available in Eastern hardrock maple and Oregon black walnut, each one is apparently sanded and oiled in a way that makes the wood feel almost like leather.

Ferrari Formula One Engineer-Designed Racing Simulator is "Nearest to Reality"

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2014

No self-respecting, self-proclaimed video game fanatic would be caught dead without a full-size motion simulator in their home, especially if you're obsessed with racing games. CXC Simulations enlisted the help of former Ferrari Formula One mechanical/electrical engineer Josh Allen for their Motion Pro II, making the virtual experience "nearest to reality than anything else on the market today." This isn't just any luxury toy, the Motion Pro II is what all your favorite racing figures and billionaires use, like Ed Brown of Patron and the Crown Prince of Dubai. Practical for your home (or mansion), the gadget has a hi-tech motion system, a powerful steering force feedback motor, pro steering wheel, and pressure-sensitive pedals. Plus, it comes standard with a 1080p resolution screen system with a 60-degree field of view (which can be upgraded to a 6,220,800 pixel panoramic triple-screen with a 180-degree view).

Instinctive Boom Boom Speaker Brings Geometry To Your Tunes

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2014

The Boom Boom speaker may not be the biggest piece of audio equipment you've ever experienced, but we love its compact and geometric design. The wireless gadget is meant to be simple and instinctive, made in a shape that engages with your creative side. Designed by Mathieu Lehanneur, Boom Boom can be positioned in whatever way you want, having no right top or bottom — plus since it's covered in a soft silicon, it's apparently pretty comfortable it your hand too. The speaker engages with you when you're ready to play music, and you can select the voice and language you'd like via the accompanying app. Available in bordeaux, khaki and white, Boom Boom also has a speakerphone mode, which allows you to use it for voice calls with Skype, FaceTime, and Hangout. Plus, thanks to the little attached strap, you can hang it wherever you want, even if that's on a tree for a springtime picnic!

Grovemade Offers "World's First" All Wood Bumper iPhone Case

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2014

With so many neat cell phone cases out there, it's pretty difficult to settle on just one. Thankfully, no one says that you have to! Maybe you want something slim and light for everyday use, but need something strong and more protective for traveling. Well, Grovemade's new iPhone Bumper line for the 5, 5s, and 5C definitely helps with the former — and maybe even the latter. Introduced last month and available in Eastern Hardrock Maple and Oregon Walnut, the company is hailing these as the world's first all wood bumper cases and promises that they will be just as protective as a full-size model. The bumper design is made to slightly elevate your phone away from flat surfaces, keeping it from coming into contact with asphalt when you drop it in the street. Plus, the company has such a tight manufacturing process that they apparently utilize 95 percent of the wood they bring in, keeping waste down to a minimum.

Private Transporter Cloud Has More Space Than You'll Know What To Do With

Own It
BY : JustLuxe Team | 2014

Using the cloud to share files isn't always the most secure and oftentimes comes with monthly fees. The Transporter Private Cloud is a private device that sits on your desk and allows you to store large amounts of files. Since you own it, all of the data within is private and easy to share. All you have to do is add a 2.5-inch SATA hard drive and you can share whatever you want with anyone. According to the company, you can share up to two terabytes per Transporter, which is basically enough room for 2,000 HD movies or some 1,000,000 photos. Plus, since it syncs up with devices via wireless internet, you can have access to your files from anywhere in the world. That means that instead of worrying about running out of room on your mobile device, you can simply store things directly to the Transporter and pull it up whenever you want.

These 19-Karat Solid Gold Earbuds Weigh 25 Grams and Cost $14,500

Own It
BY : JustLuxe Team | 2014

When it comes to earbuds, very little sets them apart from one another. Sure, there are elaborate designs that make it look like you stuck a toy in your ear, but we wouldn't want that. Instead of going kitschy, Happy Plugs draw from classic glamour for this pair of Deluxe Edition 19 karat solid gold earbuds. Made-to-order by a Swedish goldsmith in Old Town, Stockholm by hand, gold (25 grams to be exact) is molded into the shape of buds and have the weight of jewelry. They also have a built-in microphone for hands-free talking and a remote for easy control of calls and music. Considering the price tag, we definitely wouldn't want to risk losing them, but we can gaurantee you'll look fantastic sweating it out at the gym. If you have a mini me who always wants to match you, Happy Plugs also makes a metallic gold-colored set of earbuds for $25.
