When pretty much everything you do is larger than life, sometimes it feels like you need a pair of 3D glasses to take it all in. The 3D Glasses Shelf($550) from Jellio pays homage to the state-of-the-art technology with an acrylic white shelf with red and blue openings like the 3D glasses of yore. The kitschy wall art, like your Alphabetized Storage System, is the perfect place to display your plethora of accolades and awards. So you might need a few.
A man’s motorcycle says a lot about the man. Which is why you’ll be riding the limited edition Moto Guzzi V7 Racer($9,000). A throwback to the café racers of the 1960’s, this Italian bike is a class act. Unlike the Japanese crotch rockets that sacrifice looks for speed, this gentleman’s bike delivers an understated performance on timeless styling and old-school craftsmanship. Just like you, it doesn’t have to try hard to look cool. It just is.

When you’re living life in the fast lane it’s difficult to catch everything on camera. A meteor shower during your maiden spaceflight, a Peregrine falcon dive-bombing along side you at 13,000 feet, and the Girls Gone Wild bus doing a drive by, can all happen in the blink of an eye. If you don’t want to miss these spectacular, yet ordinary-to-your-life events, always have the Lytro Camera($420) on hand. Unlike a conventional camera, the Lytro camera captures the entire light field with the press of a single button. Without auto-focus or shutter delay you can capture the shot instantly and then focus it after the fact. So now you can change the focus from that girl’s face to her um…
