Get jumbo-sized sound from a compact-sized instrument with the Washburn Baby Jumbo Guitar ($1800). The electric/acoustic cutaway model features rosewood sides and back, a mahogany neck, an ebony fingerboard and bridge, a solid cedar top, Grover gold tuners, and a bone saddle and nut. For those who don't need the cutaway access or electric features, there's a standard Baby Jumbo ($1500) as well.
Half Aibo, half iPod, the Sony Rolly ($450) is an MP3-player/robotic gadget that rolls around your room playing music from its two built-in 20mm active speakers. The music comes from either Rolly's 1GB of internal flash memory, or a Bluetooth A2DP/AVRCP enabled device. Features include a USB port, included Motion editor software, onboard ambient lights that display blue, orange, or green light depending on the music playing, and the ability to playback MP3, ATRAC, and AAC files.
We spend about a third of our life sleeping, so the mattress you sleep on every night is incredibly important. Make sure you get the right one by trying out a Casper. This USA-made mattress is made up of multiple layers of foam, including one for support and pressure relief, and one to make sure you don't get too hot. It's all wrapped up in a durable woven cover, and shipped right to your door in a box that's easy to maneuver into even the smallest abodes. You get 100 nights to try it out, can return it for free if you're not satisfied, but if you are (and you probably will be), you can upgrade even further by grabbing some of the company's soft Supima cotton sheets and dual-layer pillows.

Calling it the ultimate GPS might be going a bit too far, but it sure does rock.

Like we said, "a bit too far."
