As reader robstak pointed out yesterday on the 8th day, "what kind of ceiling is $2500?" Well we're going to get much higher and higher, as the 9th day of Christmas sees the top end hit $10,000. $10,000! It's all in good fun as we march on towards more and more lavish gifts with The 12 Tech Days of Christmas here at Unplggd!

Sky Factory eScape
$9,750
You'd think with this much cash you'd be able to put real windows into your house. But it wouldn't be nearly as cool as these "virtual" windows, allowing you to change your view at whim. Sky Factory has a video talking about and showing some footage of the window in action. Using RED video cameras you're presented with scenes from 30 minutes to 2 hours long of mountains, waterfalls, beaches, streams, rivers, wildlife.... all outside your "window" for your enjoyment. Someone queue up the nude beaches!

Surface Tension Arcade Coffee Tables
From $3,000
Surface Tension has three versions of their Arcade coffee tables with built-in computer, monitor, and arcade buttons/joysticks. We all recall the Microsoft Surface and other coffee table PCs that all failed to materialize into an actual product and all the vaporware copycats that came after it - well Surface Tension actually made one, it's for sale, and it looks nice!


Breitling Chrono-matic 49

Around $5,000
Breitling has dozens of watches and there are many more skilled watchmakers available to you in this more than generous price range. We're fans of the Breitling Chrono-matic 49, a nice blend of styles in a selfwinding chronograph movement. There's something fascinating about wearing a watch in a day and age where everyone has a cell phone that can tell the time quite well. It's akin to a finely tailored suit or a shiny piece of jewelry and can look oh so fabulous.

Pinball/Arcade Game Machine
Relive the classic arcade games with a real live pinball or arcade game machine for your (wo)man cave! Pinball machines can get expensive, an example being this sweet Tron Legacy Pro machine on Amazon. Who didn't love Daytona USA, with this twin model going for $4,500.



Ducati Monster 696
$9,295
How do you upgrade a cultural icon? Ducati found the right balance when they brought the old Monster up to date with the first major redesign in who knows how many years. Showing just a peek of gorgeous body work, this Italian "naked" bike knows just how much skin works. If you haven't gotten your license, do it now and feel the wind in your helmeted face.

SylvanSport GO Adventure Accessory Package
$7,995
For the outdoorsman this is the ultimate kit. A unique camping and travel trailer that lets you convert from carrying your vehicles and gear to a comfy camp all in one. A mere 840 pounds it's easy to tow from from even the wimpiest of vehicles. As their slogan says: "coolest. camper. ever."

Segway x2
$7,199
Dean Kamen's invention was highly anticipated and then just as strongly ridiculed. But there's no denying that if you were given the chance to receive on as a gift you'd jump on it without hesitation. This off-road version has deeply treaded tires to let you go go off the beaten path (it's not like you're allowed on the roads anyway). With a top speed of over 12 miles per hour you've got a range of 24 miles before you might have to walk around the golf course. Gasp. Walk!
