Sealander Amphibious Camper

You may have seen similar campers, or even a previous version of this model, but the latest Sealander may be the best one yet. It basically combines a boat with the road-worthiness of a camping trailer all into one package. Feel the need to escape to the campsite for the weekend? Simply tow the trailer along behind your car and set it up once you arrive. Thinking of hitting the waves? That's where things take a different turn. This trailer can move at speeds of 5.5 mph with enough battery power to last for a weekend on the move, weather permitting. Simply pop the camper's top off, raise the railing into position, bolt on the engine, and you're ready to relax. Weighing 1,069-pounds unladen, the flat-bottomed vehicle is light enough to ease off into the water from shore or by using a boat launch. Expect to shell out $17,100 for the base model, but the price starts rising if you want lighting / electrical outlets, sleeping quarters, seating areas, an audio system, cooking station, toilet and even a shower.

Active Denial System

The Active Denial System, also known as ADS, is basically a non-lethal, directed-energy weapon developed by Raytheon for the U.S. military. Its main purposes are area denial, perimeter security and crowd control. Sometimes, it's referred to as a ray gun since it works by heating the surface of targets, such as the skin of targeted human subjects.

BMW i9

If you just can't get enough of the BMW i8, wait until you see the i9 prototype. As you can tell, it looks like a cross between a Star Wars pod racer and the i8.

Lucra LC470

You could either buy a second-hand supercar for $85,000, or the Lucra LC470. Weighing just 2,000-pounds, thanks to a lightweight, carbon fiber body, the LC470 can be powered by either an AMG 6.3L V8, 6.3L LS3 or a 7.0L LS7, all of which have at least 550-horsepower. If you don't fancy a Tremec TKO 600RR 5-speed manual transmission, a 7-speed Mercedes paddle shift is also an option. How fast can it go? For starters, it does 0-60mph in a mere 2.7-seconds, and the 1/4 in 10.1-seconds, topping out at 200 mph. Willwood brakes and a fully adjustable suspension ensure you're able to stop on a dime.
