    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 →

    Looks perfectly normal to me. It was funny because Geekologie Reader Chris sent me a link to the actual Street View (HERE, currently unavailable) last week, but the image was already blurred so I had no clue what I was looking at. Then I stumble across this picture today and... / Continue →

    This is a Ferrari 360 Modena spotted somewhere in Jakarta, Indonesia. If you can't tell, the owner really loves Hello Kitty. Also, ruining luxury cars. Seriously, that interior looks like straight up cat diarrhea. Hit the jump for a bunch more of the you oughta be ashamed.... / Continue →

    No matter what the product, eventually some b-hole's gonna come along and gold-plate the thing and then try selling it for like a million times what it's worth. And you know what the real sick part is? Some other b-hole is actually gonna buy it, perpetuating the circle of chi... / Continue →

    Now I'm not saying this is the best way to explain to your daughter what happened to Mr. Fluffernutter, I'm just saying I can't think of a better one. Your parents: be thankful I'm not one of them. EXCEPT I TOTALLY AM. Your other father and I made you! Picture Thanks to Yo... / Continue →

    The Gold Bullion Wireless Mouse (not to be confused the the piratey USB hub) is actually plastic. Which is why it costs $35 and not $35 gajillion. To its credit though, it does have a scroll wheel. But still, why anybody would actually pay for this garish piece of bullionshi... / Continue →

    Everybody knows gold makes for quality audio cable and connectors, but how does it fare as an actual speaker exterior? Pretty freaking ugly if you ask me. But England's Gold Acoustics seems to think there's something to it, because their GA Star line of speakers come complete... / Continue →

    Foosball: the sport of champions. And by champions I mean those who like to drink in dark, smoke-filled bars. Which I freaking rule at! *high-five* Whoa, watch the drink buddy. So yeah, a $1,200 foosball table with diamond plate accents. This thing is straight tacky as sh... / Continue →

    The LumiTable table runner is made from woven fiber optic strands and glows while you dine in the dark. Available in a variety of hideous colors, each 63"x13" runner will set you back a costly $200, but is sure to get the neighbors talking. Talking about what a tacky freaking... / Continue →

    Thought the gold Porsche and Burberry Maserati were bad? How about a pink camo Bugatti Veyron? I know, I think I just shat in my mouth a little too. The Veyron (and green camo Rolls Royce Phantom after the jump!) are both owned by Nigo, the ban behind Japanese clothing line ... / Continue →

    Need a new pair of sunglasses? Looking for an 80's pair that screams "I love Microsoft and don't care if I look like Billy Joel's grundle"? What you're seeing is the only pair of 1980's Hot Green Microsoft sunglasses around! A reliable source said these were only given to ... / Continue →

    The Votex Fountain doesn't shoot water out of a lion's mouth or pour from a bare-breasted woman's water jug, but it is expensive and comes with a lifetime tackiness guarantee. Basically, it's a giant acrylic cylinder with a pump that created a vortex in the center. Because I'... / Continue →

    Personally, I like the classic model we posted a while back. But in somebody's unending quest to eff up a perfectly good original, here comes a new and "improved" version. Not only does this curtain have gratuitous blood splatterings, it makes noise! That's right, the $20 cu... / Continue →

    From our "Money Can't Buy Classiness" department here at Geekologie comes this gold covered Porsche. Some moron with more money than taste has added almost 40 lbs of gold to his 911 convertible. So now it's 40 pounds heavier, and 50% less cool. I swear, what is it with rich ... / Continue →

    I can say whatever I want about the hairless because I'm balder than the U.S. national bird (hint: despite Franklin's penchant for 101 proof bourbon, it's not the turkey). This is allegedly the world's most luxurious office cubicle, designed and built for himself by Jared Niel... / Continue →

    Couple one of these guns with a designer gas mask, and you're guaranteed to be the tackiest thing trying to run in stilettos during the coming robot/zombie/candied yam/werewolf/douchebag/vampire/lobster apocalypse. Created by Peter Gronquist for his art exhibit "The Revolution... / Continue →

    This Pole-Dancing Alarm Clock looks like an utter piece of crap, a lot like the USB Stripper. It costs $40. What do you get for your two Jacksons? Product Features: • Spinning Pole/Dancer • Music • Time • Alarm Awesome. So she swings around to the tune of some chee... / Continue →

    So yeah, rich people are framing their home entertainment centers. Because, well, I don't know why. I guess they have bad taste or something. I find it ironic that in the picture the entertainment center and DVD rack are framed and the actual piece of art there isn't. I don't g... / Continue →
