The 5.2m Super Falcon Mk II from Deepflight Submarines – a UK company led by marine engineer Graham Hawkes, who built and piloted the Mantis submarine used in For Your Eyes Only (1981).

Barrel roll with dolphins, invert cruise with whales, dive to 122m (400ft) [not 11,000m as previously stated, which would be completely mad] – all for a trifling €1,300,000.

The Dutch jewelry designer Ted Noten has made a group of handgun-shaped compacts as part of a series he calls “Seven Necessities.” Each faux firearm is devoted to a different cosmetic giant, Dior and Chanel among them. The guns are produced on a 3-D printer, then retrofitted with hand-tooled 18-karat gold details and loaded with all the ammunition a woman needs to survive the war between the sexes. There’s a lip gloss in the muzzle, various pills (including Viagra) in the loading chamber, 100 grams of certified silver bullion in the Dior gun clip (50 grams of 24-karat gold in the Chanel), a toothpick and, in some models, a hairpin and a small vial of perfume. The guns also conceal a 4GB thumb drive for snapshots, personal data and corporate secrets.

You’ll also want to be packing between $8000 and $17,000 per piece.
