10 Ridiculously Expensive Toys for the Filthy Rich 10. Robotic Bartender Price: $25,000 The Robotic Bartender is great for a niche
group of people who like to drink, don’t like bartenders (or bars), are too lazy to
mix their own drink, and have $25,000 to blow on a drink mixer. It’s a very small niche,
is what we’re saying. The Robotic Bartender has 600 drink options
that you can choose from a touch screen interface. The mixing system can hold 16 one-liter bottles
of alcohol and 12 different mixes. Oh, and that $25,000 doesn’t include the liquor,
just the mixes. Also, since you’ll need ice, because you don’t want to drink warm
beverages like a savage, there is a built-in ice bucket that holds up to 20 pounds of ice. 9. Gotham Golf Cart Price: $28,500 What would Bruce Wayne drive on the golf course?
Well, probably not this golf cart because it would give away his secret identity pretty
quickly. But, for anyone who just wants to pretend that they are Batman when they play
golf, there is this Batman Begins-inspired Batmobile golf cart made from black alloy.
The golf cart has a top speed of 38 miles per hour, which is more than double the speed
of golf average carts. Because if there’s anything the game of golf is known for, it’s
speed. It also has two adjustable leather seats,
an iPad stand, cup holder, and lights. There isn’t a jet thruster; instead, that is where
you place your clubs. The souped-up cart will run you about $28,500. But really, isn’t
that a small pittance to pay to act like Batman? 8. Whac-A-Mole Bar Price: $35,000 Probably one of the ugliest and most dated
looking items you can buy for a ridiculous amount of money is a personalized Whac-A-Mole
bar. When closed, it looks like a 90s-style bookcase and cabinet, but when you open it
up, it’s a working Whac-a-Mole game with an overhead bar. But what makes this game
so special is that the moles can be personalized to look like people you want to whack. The
sellers suggest putting pictures of your exes or former bosses, but perhaps that money would
be spent better on psychology sessions. The game is lit with a LED lights and it comes
with two leather paddles. It costs $35,000, and just for some perspective, if each game
of Whac-a-Mole was a quarter to play, you’d have to play over 140,000 games to make the
purchase worth it. 7. Martin Jetpack Price: $150,000-$200,000 New Zealand’s Martin Jetpack company first
debuted their jetpack in 2008, and in 2016, they are looking to release a commercial version.
The pack isn’t exactly a jetpack per-say, because there are no jets involved. Instead,
they use ducted fan technology, which is similar to what drones use. The company plans on selling
them to recreational users, and to governments for search and rescue teams. Governments will probably buy them because
the number of jetpack related strandings and accidents will go up. If you want one, it
looks like they will cost between $150,000 and $200,000, which is about the same as the
median American household income for a relatively well-to-do middle class family in 2014. It’s
a little pricey if you decide to become a real-life Rocketeer, though. 6. Most Realistic Driving Simulator Price: $185,000 For the same price as a luxury car, you can
buy the most realistic driving simulator ever created. The seat, which is actually a racecar
seat, sits on a monocoque fiberglass chassis that is suspended above the ground. The chassis
can roll, pitch, and rotate 360 degrees. The chassis of the simulator moves in response
to your actions; for example, if you hit the brake, the chassis drops down, and when you
hit the gas pedal, the chassis pushes forward. So when you enter a corner at 200 miles per
hour – as one does, obviously – it will seem fairly realistic. The simulator comes
with 12 different race cars programmed into it with a number of different tracks. So,
in theory you’re really getting a dozen cars that don’t go anywhere for $185,000. 5. Goldmund Logos Anatta Sound System Price: $385,000 A sweet sound system is a must for any millionaire
or billionaire, and sound systems don’t get much more expensive than Goldmund’s
Logos Anatta. The slick and high tech sound system was designed to be a piece of art,
as well as a great sound system. The three speaker system stands about five-and-a-half
feet tall, and is created from high quality steel, ultra-rigid brass rhodium, and even
some gold. It is assembled by hand, and the manufacturers compare themselves to Swiss
watchmakers. They also use the best parts from companies that specifically make those
parts. To buy one system, that just plays sound,
you are looking at dropping $385,000, which is about the price of a new Ferrari with a
high quality sound system in it. We’ll stick with an iPhone and some Bluetooth speakers
for now, though. 4. Pal-V One Helicycle Price: $395,000 A flying motorcycle sounds like something
from Wacky Races, or something Otto the bus driver may dream about, but thanks to Helicycle
in the Netherlands, they are a real thing. The Pal-V is a three-wheeled hybrid car and
a gyrocopter. The dual vehicle can reach speeds of 112 miles per hour on both land and the
air. On a single tank of gas, it can fly a distance of 220 miles or drive for 750 miles
on land. Two downfalls of the Pal-V are that in order
to switch over from car to copter mode, it takes about 10 minutes. Also, you need 540
feet of runway space to take off because it is a gyrocopter and doesn’t lift straight
up like a helicopter. So if you’re driving it and run into a traffic jam, you can’t
just turn on the copter and fly over those non-flying suckers. And in order to drive
a helicycle, you need $395,000, or a rich friend, and a driver’s license and a pilot’s
license. And then, finally, you’ll be able to live out your fantasies of being Max Rockatansky’s
weird friend in Road Warrior. 3. C-SEED 201 LED television Price: $687,775 Perhaps people in the past thought that in
the 21st century, rich people may have movie theaters in their home. But did anyone really
think that someone would have an outdoor movie theater? Well, that is what the C-SEED 201
LED television is. It’s a 201-inch (16 feet) screen with 16:9 picture and is meant for
outdoor use. When the TV is not in use, it is stored in a well below the ground. Then,
with the tap of a button, it rises up 15 feet and seven LED panels unfold to create the
screen in 25 seconds. The screen has 725,000 LEDs which can depict 4.4 trillion colors
at 5,000 nits of brightness (yes, that’s a real term) and it has three 700 watt subwoofers. To buy what is considered to be the world’s
largest TV, you will be shelling out about $687,775, which is about $187,000 more than
buying an actual drive-in movie theater. But won’t it make watching all those reruns
of Frasier even more magical than you ever could have hoped? 2. Kuratas Robot Price: $1,350,000 Moving from toys for just plain old rich people
into toys for rich supervillains is the Kuratas Robot from Suidobashi Heavy Industry in Japan.
The customizable four-ton mech robot allows operators to sit in the bomb-proof chest cavity
and drive the robot. The robot moves via a system of 30 hydraulic actuators that are
controlled by computer software. As for what the driver controls, there is an onboard weapons
system that includes a BB Gatling gun that is activated by a smile, a robotic hand that
is controlled with a glove that the driver wears, and of course, you can hook your iPhone
into it. One robot will set you back at least $1.35
million for the basic model, but there is always room for upgrades. After all, if you’re
going to get a multi-ton wearable robot, you need to have cup holders. It’s totally worth
the cost, too, because how else are you going to fight fight Iron Man or, if you so choose,
repel an alien invasion without a giant mech suit? 1. The Rinspeed sQuba Price: $2,000,000 If an armed mech robot has too much of a supervillain
feel to it, and you’d rather be a good guy if you’re spending obscene amounts of money,
how about buying a James Bond-inspired submarine car? The Rinspeed sQuba is styled after the
Lotus Esprit car in The Spy Who Loved Me, but instead of an airtight submarine, sQuba
car is a convertible. Yes, a submarine with no roof doesn’t make much sense, but it
is designed that way in case the two passengers need to make an escape. On land, the car has a top speed of 77 miles
per hour and, unfortunately, on the water it is much slower. On the surface, the sQuba
travels at about three miles per hour and underwater it reaches a whopping 1.5 MPH.
It can also descend to a depth of 30 feet. For the combination of a car, boat, and submarine,
you’re looking at a $2 million price tag, which is about the price of five Rolls Royce
Phantoms.

  1. What gets me is the people who try and bring a hotel into their home. Spa, bowling alley, gym, bar, tennis court, fancy pool. Yeah, it's nice but barely used on a daily basis. Michael Jackson and Hugh Heffner even have a zoo, crazy. Jackson took it one step farther and tried to make his place into an amusement park. Problem is, this stuff has to be maintained, and doesn't bring in money if owned by a single person.

  2. I have a redneck friend who will build you all of these things, and all you have to do is let him play XBox at your house.

  3. I don't get the point of #10 (the car-submarine). It doesn't even function well if it can only go 30 feet deep and 1.5MPH underwater and 3MPH on land.
    I don't think even billionaires would waste money on something that doesn't even work (unless they're also crazy).

  4. I can't lie. If I had the money, I'd go for the sound system. Just think what the remastered version of Abbey Road would sound like! 🙂 Great video!

  5. when highly annoyed kaiju start rampaging the city intent on causing massive amounts of property damage and reducing iconic landmarks to smoldering rubble it's always handy to have several Kuratas Robots ready and waiting to thwart the nefarious whims of dastardly creatures of unusually large proportions…just sayin'

  6. #10: What a novel way to guarantee that you'll be swimming in your own piss without leaving home.
    #6: Yes you're paying for cars that doesn't actually go anywhere. Buuuut, you do get to learn how to drive expensive cars without actually crashing one. Oh who am I kidding, we'll still get terrible pay drivers in F1 and Sportscar racing.
    #2: Yep, its official. Japan is trying to take over the world. You can literally destroy the enemy with an honest to god smile on your face (unless its Iron Man because come one, anything that comes from a universe where Adamantium and Vibratium exists will be a pain in the ass to take out).

  7. I think the Kuratas should be worth more than a stupid car since you can fight aliens with a Kurata while that dumb car is going to be useless 99.99% of the time

  8. One British guy invented a car that tuns into a boat just by driving it into the water but I am not sure of the price. it was in the news was showing it off on the Thames.

  9. Hmmmm so if a car that can travel on land or underwater costs 2 million then how much would the karts in Mario Kart be? The ones in Mario Kart 8 can drive on land, under water and glide through the air. There is one kart that is even made of solid gold – that thing would be worth a billion if it was real.
