The Jesus of Bicycles? X1 Water Bike Takes Cycling to the Sea

Own It
BY : JustLuxe Team | 2014

Take one avid Soul Cycler, combine with one large body of water, and mix well — that’s almost (okay, not at all) how this bike came about. Actually, when Judah Schiller created the X1 Water Bike, it was so that he could ride across the San Francisco Bay. Built like a bike, with handlebars, saddles, cranks, pedals, but with aquatic-friendly features like propellers and dual-chamber pontoons, the X1 offers riders the chance to take spin class to the open water. Depending on the rider’s ability, the bike can reach a speed of about 10 mph. It’s also easily transportable (on land), the lightweight frame and inflatable pontoons can be put together in about 10 minutes. We’re just hoping you don’t need Crocs or some other not-so-fashionable water shoe to take the X1 Water Bike for a spin.

Get Your Very Own Limited Edition Spaceship for Only $23K

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2014

If you fancy yourself a hardcore science-fiction fan and have George Takei's Twitter account as your homepage, you're going to love MB&F's MusicMachine 2 (MM2), which was made by Reuge. Taking on the shape of a spacecraft, the fancy Swiss music box plays songs from Star Wars, Star Trek, and even the The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin. If this sounds familiar, you may remember reading about Reuge's Musical Starship last year, which took on a much different shape. The MM2 however, coming in white or black, is limited to just 66 pieces and has two music cylinders, each one with its very own winding key. Not only is it made with carbon fiber, its sound boards are harvested from 350-year-old trees (only one in 10,000 trees make the cut, so to speak). The cylinder on the right plays bits of Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin, Angie by The Rolling Stones, and Should I Stay Or Should I Go? by The Clash. The left cylinder plays classic sci-fi songs from Star Wars and Star Trek

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2014

Alexandra Llewellyn has designed and created luxury bespoke backgammon boards for some seriously wealthy clientele—even Richard Branson and Elle Macpherson—and you can get one commissioned for yourself featuring whatever imagery you want. Some past commissions include a couple who wanted to commemorate their relationship and a board that celebrated another client's Mexican roots. Of course, you can always buy a Limited Edition backgammon board, like the hand-painted design pictured above, which is called Lily and limited to just 10. Made using dark zebrano wood, the design features brass fastenings and photographic cala lily images on the inside. The weighted brass playing pieces are inlaid with mother of pearl, black glass on the top and leather on the bottom. The dice cups are rosewood and "lined with inside lips to ensure fair and random rolls of the precision laser cut dice" (which happen to be made with laurel burr). Designed for the Terrence Higgins Trust, 20 percent of each sale goes straight to the charity.
