Sony 4k Ultra Short Throw Projector

Luxury cinemas will envy any home entertainment room headlining this sleek projector. The Sony 4k Ultra Short Throw Projector displays a 147-inch crystal clear image at four times the clarity of Full HD. And the kicker — it sits on the floor only inches in front of the wall it’s projecting onto. The modern design with built-in speakers harmonizes any room, and since it’s not mounted on the ceiling like traditional projectors, installation is effortless and shadows will never interfere.

The Sony 4k Ultra Short Throw Projector is currently available in the New York and Los Angeles metropolitan areas for $50,000. Find on

 Soundwall: The Connected Canvas

This is not your average wall art. Connected Canvas is part of the “connected art movement,” and each of these unique and sometimes custom designed works is actually an art-speaker combo that keeps giving. There’s no hidden clunkiness behind the beautiful surface; the canvas itself is the speaker, and it wirelessly connects to your device so you can stream your music in “Play Music Mode.” But what makes this more than just a flashy speaker is “Play Art Mode,” in which the print plays new music and sounds created by the work’s original artist specifically for your custom artwork. It’s the perfect intersection of visual and audio art to bring your collection into the tech-century.

Available online at Prices range from $999 to $10,000.

ReST Smart Mattress

This truly smart mattress goes beyond just tracking sleep data and actually adjusts according to your body’s needs throughout the night so you can wake up feeling as rested as possible. Typically, our sleep positions put too much pressure on specific body parts. This is fixed by tossing and turning (which interrupts sleep), but the ReST mattress adjusts so you don’t have to. When the pressure-sensing fabric detects movement or too much pressure on a specific body part, it inflates or deflates the corresponding part of the mattress to relieve pressure and maximize comfort.

The ReST smart mattress will be available in the U.S. in April. Mattresses range from $4,999 to $9,499. Find on
