The most expensive gadgets combine great style,pure functionality and immense desirability


Bang &
Olufsen BeoPlay A3

Bang & Olufsen is known for its design. Its iPad dock,the BeoPlay A3,is no exception. A unique wedge-shaped device,the BeoPlay A3 can sense whether your iPad is horizontal or vertical and provide accurate stereo sound. The Rs 40,000 (approximate) A3 will provide five hours of playback per charge,though it will only charge the iPad when it is plugged directly into the wall socket. The iPad has never found a better-looking seat.

Leica M-Monochrom

The price may sound crazy,but almost all professional photographers aspire to own a Leica. The latest to emerge from Leica’s niche assembly line is the M-Monochrom,a black and white camera,as its name suggests. With an 18 MP full-frame sensor,which can produce incredibly sharp images in the lossless 14-bit RAW image format,this Leica is built for the purist. There are low-light benefits as well,as the M-Monochrom has a top ISO setting of 10,000. This one is only for the deepest of pockets who are willing to shell out Rs 4,50,000 (approximately). This price is for body-only.

Natuzzi Surround Sofa

Italian furniture brand Natuzzi has a Surround Sofa,which should complete that relaxing movie experience you crave for. For music aficionados,Natuzzi has integrated an iPod dock and two speakers in one of the corners. The sofa looks good and has modular headrests. This Rs 4,53,510 sofa can be customised with various colours and versions of durable leather furnishings.

Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 12

The BeoLab 12 is Bang & Olufsen’s all-digital,flat-on-the-wall loudspeaker. Designed to be mounted on the wall,the BeoLab 12 saves precious space in your room and adds aesthetic appeal to it with its sleek,appealing looks. The BeoLab 12 speakers feature a three-dimensional wave design,which does not sacrifice any “performance or acoustic perfection”. The speakers disperse high frequencies in a 180-degree range in front of the speaker,which lets listeners sit anywhere in the room and still have a “fantastic sound experience” for all of Rs 3,00,000 (approximately).

LG Cinema 3D Smart TV

LG’s top-of-the-line Cinema 3D Smart TV features 2D to 3D conversion and also gives users the ability to alter 3D depth for comfortable viewing.

The good thing is that the almost all 3D glasses work with this TV. Gamers tired of split-screen displays can now breathe easy as LG’s Dual Play feature uses 3D glasses to show gamers their character’s perspective. One screen,two viewpoints.

This Rs 7,00,000 TV has built-in WiDi (Wireless Display) for connectivity to laptops and other devices,cutting out cable clutter.
