The Apple Store Fitted Me For A $15,000 Watch I Could Never Afford

This morning, I made a 30-minute appointment at the Apple store for a “fitting” of the Apple Watch Edition — a gadget which starts at $US10,000. I could never afford one, much less the $US15,000 watch I actually tried. Apple didn’t seem to mind.

Today, I strapped a $14,000 watch to my wrist — one with an Apple computer inside. I played with it a bit, and tried to imagine integrating it into my life. But by the time Apple (oh so courteously!) booted me out of the showroom, I couldn’t make up my mind.

Watching An Umbrella Get Hand Made Is Captivating

There’s a bit of a chicken or the egg thing for me when it comes to umbrellas. I never spend too much money on umbrellas because they always break. Or do they break because I never spend too much money on them? After watching this titillating video of a beautiful umbrella being made, I think I know the answer.


A Self-Adjusting Smart Belt: Yes, It's Come To This

You can keep your 4K TVs and your autonomous puppy dog drones. The Belty promises to have a greater impact on humanity than even the wheel. It’s the world’s first smart belt featuring an electric-powered motor built into the buckle that automatically loosens the strap when you sit down, and then tightens the belt again when you stand up to head off any Benny Hill-esque pant droppings.


No-One Needs A Solar-Powered Jacket

By this stage, I think we’ve all more or less accepted that “wearable technology” means something like a watch or glasses or ring or earpiece that measures your heartbeat and talks to your phone. But this memo unfortunately hasn’t reached certain fashion brands.
