To quote Madonna (something I’m not particularly fond of), “We are living in a material world.” To help you figure out which of the millions of material goods swirling around us is worth spending your hard-earned cash on, we have put together The Want List, consisting of the items we really love this week.
GOPRO HERO4 SESSION CAMERA
If there’s one knock on GoPros, it’s their size. So for the new Hero4 Session camera, the company shrank the camera down to the size of an ice cube. The Session itself is waterproof, so no need for the additional housing of other GoPro models, and shoots 1440p resolution at 30 frames per second so the quality of videos is great.
ASTON MARTIN AM37 YACHT
Price unavailable, quintessenceyachts.com
Everyone knows Aston Martin for its luxury automobiles, including the ones favored by James Bond himself. Now the British automaker has teamed up with Quintessence Yachts to create a powerboat worthy of the Aston Martin name. The 37-foot powerboat is fashioned from carbon fiber and is capable of doing up to 52 knots. It also adds all the styling details you’d expect from a world-class sports car.
BEAR REPUBLIC CAFE RACER 15
Price varies, bearrepublic.com
Bear Republic Brewing is bringing back its limited edition, seasonal double IPA. Cafe Racer 15 won a silver medal at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival and has a 94 rating from Beer Advocate. The beer uses four different hops to produce a bold flavor that you’ll enjoy on a hot day.
$260 (without heating system)/$920 (with heating system), kickstarter.com
Combining the two most relaxing things ever—a hammock and a hot tub—makes so much sense, it’s surprising no one ever thought of it before. The Hydro Hammock is big enough that you don’t have to swing alone and small enough that you don’t have to worry about it turning into a bowl of dude soup. It holds up to 50 gallons of water and the optional water heater can warm the H20 up to your desired temperature.
TL3 RACING SIMULATOR
From $53,702, motionsimulation.com
You know how people are always telling gamers to get off the couch? Well, this a way to do that and still play video games. The TL3 is a high performance simulator for racing games that was developed in consultation with a Formula 1 team. The lifelike 200-degree screen has a spherical design and 6 million pixels for stunning resolution. It’s not as easy to store as your standard console controller, but it does break down easily into smaller parts.
