MB&F Musicmachine

It might look like a prop from a sci-fi film, but in fact, the MB&F Musicmachine ($13,500) is simply one of the world's most desirable music boxes. Built in collaboration with music box maker Reuge, MB&F used its watch-making know how to construct the spaceship-like machine, which plays three tunes from each of its two cylinders — the Star Wars theme, Imperial March, and Star Trek theme on one side, and "Another Brick in the Wall", "Smoke on the Water", and "Imagine" on the other. Limited to just 66 pieces — 33 in white and 33 in black — it's sure to be a source of conversation for a long, long time.

  • Propellerhead Balance

    Home studio recording just got simpler with the Propellerhead Balance ($450). This sleek, Red Dot-winning breakout box offers eight input connections — two high impedance guitar and bass inputs with pads, four line inputs, and two microphone preamps with phatom power — as well as balanced outputs and a powerful headphone amplifier. It connects to your computer via USB, and includes Reason Essentials, a fully-functional "basics"-style version of the company's award-winning Reason recording software. All you need are some instruments, a computer, and talent.

  • Beeracuda

    Whether you're headed to the ball field, golf course, or just wandering the streets like the town drunk, the Beeracuda ($20) can keep you properly hydrated. The insulated sling holds five cans of your favorite beverage, while the shoulder strap offers a built-in koozie for your sixth. Beyond that, it's up to you — we recommend semi-frequent stops at 7-Eleven.
