Umbrella That Whacks As Strong As A Steel Pipe

This is how strong and hard this Unbreakable Umbrella is. Use as a walking stick or cane and no one will know you’ve got a weapon in your hand. Weighs less than 2 lb. Carried by the Presidential Security Group (PSG) of the Philippines President.


Ideal self-defense weapons are those that are legal to carry everywhere, do not attract attention, are simple to use, and do not require practice.

How to use this bashing brolly:


A Yacht Designed By Porsche

If I have a few billion in my pocket, I might consider getting a yacht.

Something that looks as good as this one from Porsche Design Studio.

It’s a 41 metre catamaran with two 4,600hp MTU 16V 4000 M93L diesel engines and two Rolls-Royce KaMeWa waterjets. Top speed is 35 knots.

No indication of price…

Just as well, I only need to hire one for a few months.

I like the design. $99 at the apple store

$40 more than the regular one. For style. And substance. Hmmm.

Moshi Will Do As It Is Told

Fabulous looking especially in the dark with the luminescent frame glowing in cool blue.

The frame illuminates only when needed.


The handlebars come with electronic turn signals.
