Noise Eliminating Smart Earplugs
Literally music to your ears, the world's first smart earplugs are set to hit the market this December, with pre-orders available now. Hush earplugs are wireless noise-masking earplugs that connect to your smartphone and play soothing sounds, such as white noise, ocean waves and rainfall, for more than 10 hours. Hush connects wirelessly to your smartphone, so sleeping through your alarm isn't an issue; the alarm will go off right in your ears when it's time to wake up.

Private Jet Membership
The one thing all jetsetters wish they could have more of is time. And this is exactly what Wheels Up provides its members - more time, peace of mind and the flexibility to fly whenever, wherever. For an initiation fee of $17,500 and reasonable annual dues, Wheels Up members have access to a private fleet of brand new King Air 350i and Citation Excel/XLS aircraft. Being part of this club also means you get access to their ride-sharing app which enables members to hitch rides and split costs.
