Jetpacks are the personal vehicle of choice for the future, at least according to The Jetsons. You can get ahead of the crowd and preorder the Martin Jetpack, which will cost around $125,000, The Guardian reports.

Martin Jetpacks aren’t like the water-propelled jetpacks you see today with tubes that extend down into water. The Martin will run on gasoline/aircraft fuel, which powers two large fans. Its engines push out 210 horse power and it can hold up to about 260 pounds.

This submarine is fully certified as a passenger-carrying manned submarine, and the price includes comprehensive training (i.e. don’t worry if you don’t have your submarine-driver’s license yet).

Aerigon UAV drone that shoots 4K video

There are a lot of drones on the market, and a whole bunch of them shoot video. But these little flying cameras don’t usually give you the best quality video, especially not good enough to shoot a car commercial with.

Enter the Aerigon UAV drone with a Phantom Flex 4K camera attached to it, which is a roughly $250,000 creation.

The Aerigon UAV is a pretty heavy-duty drone that uses six propellers to lift up to 19 pounds, which means it has the strength to hold up a heavy-hitting camera like the Phantom Flex 4K without breaking a sweat.

If you just want to fly the drone by itself, you’ll still have to shell out about $50,000.

Prophix toothbrush

Dental health is important, and if you’re rolling in dough, you can get the best tooth-care money can buy right at home with the Prophix toothbrush. It’s only $400.

Not only that, the toothbrush connects to app that tracks how well and how often you brush your teeth. It has a built-in camera to take pictures and videos while you’re brushing your teeth, too.

While this may sound a little TMI, the camera helps you see the progress you’re making while brushing and if there are spots you need to focus more on.

It also keeps your food cold, if you’re into that sort of thing.

VPI Classic Direct Turntable

People can be pretty picky about their turntables, especially when they have the money to throw at a really good one. But “really good” doesn’t even describe VPI’s Classic line of turntables, which can run up to $30,000 for some models.

Noble Audio Prestige earbuds

While there are some high-quality and expensive over-ear headphones available, some people just want great earbuds. Noble Audio has a pretty awesome selection ofPrestige earbuds, which can cost up to $2,900.

A good chunk of that price comes from the materials used to make the eye-catching designs such as carbon glass, Siamese Rosewood and other custom materials. In addition, Noble Audio doesn’t skimp on the technical side. The headphones are named Kaiser 10 because they use 10 drivers in each bud to produce super-clear, deep sounds. Normal headphones have one driver in each earpiece.

Gray International phone case

Even if you’re super rich, you’re probably going to have the same smartphone as everyone else. To show off a little wealth, you can opt for a pricy Gray International case designed for iPhone 6 and 6S. The cases start at $500, but the top-of-the-line protector will run you $1000.

The Advent case (above) is only a bumper, which means it only covers the sides of the phone, but it’s designed with grade 5 titanium found in spaceships and Formula 1 cars, so you can rest easy when you drop it on the pavement.

Christie Roadie projector

Regular movie fans may be satisfied with a 50-inch TV and a Blu Ray copy of a movie, but that may not cut it for super fans. If you fall into this category and have $140,000 to spend, check out the Christie Roadie 4K45 4K DLP Projector.

This projector natively plays video in 4K at 60 frames per second, emitting 45,000 lumens to deliver a premium movie viewing experience.

Of course, you can’t have a projector like this without a big screen to capture the image, so you might want to check out the $1,300 Da-Lite 87164V Cinema Contour Deluxe Screen, which measures 119 inches diagonally (and is relatively cheap compared to the rest of this list).
