After online shopping for some astronomically priced gadgetry, we learned a lot about how the geeky 1% lives. First, there’s nothing electronic that can’t be encrusted with diamonds or plated in gold. Second, traffic need never be a problem when you have an amphibious truck or hovercraft. And finally, a heavy supply of robots is essential when preparing for the apocalypse. So if your startup makes it big, or you hit the lottery, here’s your ultimate buying guide for your new fancy-schmancy life.
