TrustedReviews' Christmas Wishlist 2011 - Edward

SIM2 Lumis 3D-S

For those of you that managed to read our recent end of year awards, you'll probably be all too familiar with just why I'd want the Sim2 3D-S, but for those of you less up to speed, here's a quick recap.

Sim2 Lumis 3D-S

The SIM2 3D-S is a £30,000 projector that comfortably throws super-bright, detailed and just downright awe-inspiringly brilliant pictures onto screens hundreds of inches wide. It also produces some of the best 3D images you can experience - even compared to many cinemas - thanks to its complete lack of crosstalk. Quite simply, it's the ultimate home cinema projector.

Would I struggle to fit it, and an accompanying appropriately large screen, in my house? Probably. Would it be ridiculous to use it without surround sound (which I currently don't have). Certainly. But, hey, this is a wishlist, and who said wishes had to be sensible.

Fujifilm X100

I actually struggled to think of another tech product that I really wanted, without just resorting to the accompanying receiver and surround speakers I'd want to go with my projector, but eventually I came up with one.

Fujifilm X100

The Fujifilm X100 is the epitome of a product that you'd love to own but would never actually buy (unless you're a pro, I suppose). Its rugged-yet-compact build, masses of manual dials, fast lens and superb image quality make it a great camera for photography enthusiasts such as myself, but its size, fixed lens and sheer cost (£789) means it lacks the versatility to make for a sensible purchase. And that's why it's the perfect wishlist item.

History Supreme

Seriously? What the...? Why would you do that? Wouldn't it sink?

These are just some of the appropriate reactions to hearing about the History Supreme, the world's most expensive yacht. Conceived by British bling specialist Stuart Hughes - a man more used to making gold and platinum iPads and iPhones - the History Supreme uses over 100,000kg of gold in its construction, with the entire hull being plated in the stuff. It also packs in plenty of platinum and many other precious metals and minerals.

History Supreme

Frankly it puts everything else in the world to shame for sheer density of wealth and utter ridiculousness. In this regard it totally *ahem* eclipses Roman Abramovich's Eclipse superyacht, despite being a paltry 30m long.

It's not just the hilarious levels of bling that appeal though. What really tops it off is that it includes a wall feature made from a meteor and a Tyrannosaurus Rex bone. Epic, just epic!

I doubt that the yacht has 100,000 kgs of gold plating. It should only need about 250g to plate something the size of a yacht.

I was skeptical too but that's what the site says. Bear in mind, when the company does gold and platinum computers and phones, it doesn't plate them but actually makes the chassis out of solid metal (again so it says). Quite how that doesn't complete destroy their ability to work, I don't know, but clearly there's some sort of market for them. As an example the Platinum 13in MacBook Air weighs 7kg and costs... &#163319,995!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What was I thinking. &#163319,995 is nothing. How about a Gold, ammolite, TRex bone, and diamond iPad for &#1635,000,000?
