The Double Robotics system ($2,500) allows you to be in two places at once—virtually—via an iPad mounted on a Segway-like platform that you can control remotely from anywhere in the world. Drive your double to meetings, then stick around to see who gets into trouble at the office party. doublerobotics.com

Let other men strain their backs and bloat their bellies with feats of strength and speed eating. An accomplishment certified by none other than Guinness World Records is more achievable than you think. The web-based Challengers competition has 200 breakable records, from Mario Kart time trials to quarters stacked on the back of a hand in one minute. Prove your mettle via video for official certification. challengers.guinnessworldrecords.com

Blockbuster technology is finally within reach of mere mortals. When Michael Bay had to select a camera to shoot the fourth installment of the Transformers film franchise, he chose a RED digital model that can be rented by civilians like you, complete with lenses and fancy accessories, for $1,000 a day. Budding directors with Bling Ring–level aspirations can rent a more indie-appropriate rig for half that price. 5kcamerarentals.com

If the clothes make the man, then stand above all other men by having your clothes made. The bespoke suit is the pinnacle of the garment game. Gone are the days of jetting to Hong Kong to have a one-of-a-kind suit tailored for you. Choose fabrics, lapel width, venting and other details that will set you apart at the office or out on the town.

There’s nothing like seeing your name embroidered on the uniforms of athletes performing at the highest level…which is why man invented bowling. For a few thousand dollars you can sponsor a professional bowling team. (Visit local alleys or bowling message boards to find teams looking for backing.) Be sure to negotiate to receive a percentage of prize monies and, of course, a bowling shirt.

Every man who has ever secretly identified with a James Bond villain has dreamed of making every week shark week at his house. You could, if you were so inclined, spend tens of thousands of dollars on a full-size hammerhead shark and a massive custom-built MTV Cribs–worthy tank. But an impressive (and less endangered) three-foot-long bamboo cat shark and a plug-and-play 250-gallon salt-water aquarium will set back budding Dr. Evils a cool $3,000.
