    Because there is somebody out there who is rich and tasteless enough to literally want everything that they own gold-plated, Harrods in London is selling this 24k gold-plated X-Box One for £6000 ($9785). So, for $9,285 more than the regular version you get a shiny box. For re... / Continue →

    Meet the Mirror Spider, a spider with shiny guanine crystal patches on its back that give it the appearance of the broken glass mosaic you made in arts & crafts class. The shiny parts appear small when the spider is on the move but grow to cover the entire abdomen when at rest... / Continue →

    Remember when Kia and DC Entertainment got together to customize a car for each member of the Justice League? Well here's the Optima Hybrid Superman one. It, uh, it's really something. I'm just having a hard time believing Superman would drive a Kia. "Of course he would." ... / Continue →

    This is the circuit board fingernail art painted by Nail Pop. I don't really know what else to say so I'm probably just going to ramble. I woke up feeling like death today and it's only gotten worse with prolonged awakeness. I'm in bed right now and I just noticed I should p... / Continue →

    These are the berries of Pollia condensata. Scientists have just named them the world's shiniest natural object after tests revealed they reflect nearly 30% of light. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? "I bet they pass through undigested like corn?" What? NO. I was gonna... / Continue →

    This is GoVacuum's $1,000,000 24k gold-plated vacuum. It doesn't work better than a regular vacuum, it's just gold. Why? Because if you sell vacuums for a million dollars, you only have to sell one. It's a real product you can buy (although I'll kill you if you do), but was... / Continue →

    This is a dragon sculpture created from 136 shattered blank CD's by Redditor Amon-a-boat. He started with a wire mesh frame, then hot-glued all the CD bits onto it. 136 discs? Damn, you could of made a lot of mix CD's with those, homey. Know what I'm saying? I'm saying if ... / Continue →

    Because SOMEBODY had to do SOMETHING with all those unwanted AOL CDs, Australian artist Sean Avery decided to put them to good use creating little animal sculptures (custom ones available on his website for ~$320-$850). Good lookin', Sean. Some artists work in paint, some in ... / Continue →

    This is the Anliker McLaren SLR 999 Red Gold Dream. It started as a Mercedes SLR McLaren, but apparently after you do so much gaudy shit to something you get to rename it. You and I will now refer to it as the USS Boobooprise. It was created under the watchful retarded eye o... / Continue →

    I actually posted The Deli Garage's food spraypaint last year, but that was before they were advertising the shit WITH GOLDEN CHICKENS. Which -- you think they lay golden eggs? God, where were you on this, McDonalds? Just think: "Strike it rich in taste this fall with our al... / Continue →

    Unfortunately, Bruce Wayne didn't approve, which and the piece is entirely unlicensed (my favorite kind of product). Created and sold by Latvian design firm Katz, the 'Bat Mirror' comes with a black, white or gold frame for 290€ ($412). CUSTOM COLORS AVAILABLE FOR EXTRA. H... / Continue →

    West Coast Customs teamed up with Monster Cables (WTF?!) to produce a TRON-themed Audi R8 because -- well -- I don't know why. Something about poor decision making and overpriced wires. The car itself is an Audi R8, a car whose electric version has graced the digital page... / Continue →

    This is a gallery of a bunch of bling created by jeweler nOir for DC Comics. That's the Gotham City ring there, but there's a ton of other stuff after the jump. They've got all sorts of rings, bracelets and necklaces and prices range from ~$50 to several hundred depending on ... / Continue →

    In other culinary-ish product news, how about a Starship Enterprise pizza cutter? It's not delivery, it's DiGiorno! No it's not either, it's store brand and there isn't nearly enough cheese to cover the sauce. Unrelated, the last time I tried making my own pizza it cost $30 a... / Continue →

    Because finding a rich person with class is like finding a bum with clean underwear that toots diamond dust, there are now ATMs that dispense gold bars. Abu Dhabi's top hotel is upping the ante in the race for Gulf glitz: adding a gold-dispensing machine. The ATM-style kiosk... / Continue →

    C-3PO was like the Jar Jar Binks of the original Star Wars trilogy. So f***ing annoying. I would have offered Boba Fett a lifetime of free drinks at the Mos Eisley Cantina to catch him and then melt him down to make me a clock. What a shiny, whiny turd. Anyway, if you want ... / Continue →

    This gold and diamond encrusted Mario pendant recently sold on eBay for the low, low price of $2,600. Yes I bought it! Which is exactly why I didn't post it until after the deal was done. I can't have you stealin' my blang! What did I get for my hard-earned cashmoney?: Tot... / Continue →

    Put your hand down your pants. Now feel around. Realistically, how many of your penises would it take to fill a hotdog bun? Four or more you may need a chrome Hummer H2. And thankfully, Germany-based CFC (way to screw the ozone, jerks) has got you covered. In adhesive chro... / Continue →

    Darth Vader, best known for having his mask removed by his son in Return of the Jedi and looking like a horribly peeled hard-boiled egg underneath, is now a disco ball. Well, his mask is anyway. Spotted at an unknown club, Darth will have you shaking your money-maker quicker ... / Continue →
