Schmidt, Metz, Leica, Jawbone, Artisan, YikeBike, Ciclotte…

… those were the new friends we made on 1.11.11 !

 

We were at Avenue K to join in the revelry for the launch of Schmidt Marketing’s flagship showroom. Boy, were we in for a wild party of music, sexy dancers, fast cars, gourmet food and luxury gadgets! Of course, the event needed to be kept afloat with a healthy dose of champagne, specialty wines and various cocktails.

These beauties were amongst the guests…

New to the Malaysian market is the exclusive Made-in-Germany line of LED television, Metz. An entry level Metz will probably give you the budget for 6 regular 40″ LED TVs! Below pic, a 3D model with a really cool and comfy wrap-around 3D glasses.

The Men In Black from Germany who shared with Cumi the superiority of Metz 3D LED TVs and why Milla Jovovich looks even more stunning with their technology.

The World’s smallest, lightest electric bike, YikeBike, developed by the Kiwis. Made of carbon fibre, its lightweight (10+kg) and the designers have made it foldable for easy transport. This mini penny farthing with reversed handlebars and ‘UFO’ LED lights looks uncomfortable and unstable but after a few test runs, I got the hang of it. You’ll need a larger space than the showroom to get around. It speeds up to 25km/h. You won’t be able to do a Tour de France with it but you’ll definitely turn more than a few heads. To take one home, it’ll set you back about RM15XXX – chump change really.

Fearful of pedestrians and motorists but need the exercise? Ciclotte, the Italian ‘steed’, is here to make you sweat in style. Just like riding the bull by its horns. We joked with the Schmidt peeps they should replace the handle bars with a cow skull… they weren’t amused. How about a gold plated cow skull?
