Skycar, Levitating Sculpture, Treehouse - From Neiman Marcus This Christmas


Every year, the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book includes a handful of outrageously expensive items, including a couple that sound like mis-placed April Fool's Day gags.

This xmas, for instance, you could stuff your loved one's stocking with the $3.5 million Moller Skycar pictured above. It's a prototype that runs on ethanol and takes of vertically. The first test flight is scheduled for early 2006.

Skycar, Levitating Sculpture, Treehouse - From Neiman Marcus This Christmas

The Dreamboat Limited-Edition Levitating Sculpture uses a 6-foot long mahogany base filled with magnets that suspend a slab of polished aluminum in space. The magnets are supposedly made to never lose their strength—which is important to consider when you are investing $90,000.

There is also a custom-made treehouse starting at $50,000, a 1.5-hour private concert with Sir Elton John, and an old-fashioned strip-style photobooth for $20,000 (these are no longer in production, but you can find them on eBay for about the same price). There is a complete rundown over at The Purse Blog.
