Most Expensive Sport in the World
Most Expensive Sport in the World:Whitianga Festival of Speed
The Whitianga Festival of Speed secures the number one spot here simply because this is where you will find all ridiculous sports that require speed (hence, the name) being performed. This is where the New Zealand Helicopter Championship events take place. So, basically in order for you to join the competition, you have to have a helicopter. This means you need millions of dollars of spare money.

World's Most Expensive Musical Instrument

Violin Vieuxtemps Guarneri
Vieuxtemps Guarneri was created by Guarneri in 1741. It is famous under the nickname of Mona Lisa of all violins. The violin is named as Vieuxtemps Guarneri after it was purchased by Henri Vieuxtemps in 1800s. The value of this most expensive violin is $18,000,000. In this present day this violin belongs to the Chicago’s Bein & Fushi. Probably some collectors really want to have it as their latest collection. It seems that this most expensive violin is not a commercial thing to own.
In the world of the concert, the title of Giuseppe Guarneri is yet revered and respected. The master craftsman of the 18th century is yet identified for his creations, including some of the greatest violins always made. So, those who boast of possessing an instrument Guarnieri novel might be deemed not merely blessed but also very wealthy, given its lofty inherent worth of his creations. It is not the case. From nowadays, the list of blessed owners Guarnieri, can stretch, given that one of the most prominent of his violins, one known Vieuxtemps Guarnieri, in homage to the great Belgian violinist and composer Henri Vieuxtemps, who had owned, go to auction for a record $ 18 million well! The prior record belonged to some other Guarnieri, sold “only” 10 million.
Built in 1741, three years before the demise of Ceremonies creator, this infrequent and novel instrument, is one of the most exceptional creations Guarnieri, who built the largest average of the other violins.
And this is possibly the most significant feature that makes it so precious and dissimilar from everybody else. In special for the higher power of sound, not just in terms of volume but also attribute, as evidenced by Peter Quint, a soloist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, this was among the auspicious to have the privilege to have played.
But these outstanding qualities should not be shocking, recall that the prominent “gun” Paganini was a Guarnieri. At this level we can merely wait to see who, among numerous collectors from around the world who already have stepped forward, capable to bring domestic the big violin.

World's Most Expensive Computer Mouse

The computer mouse is one of the most identifiable computer components for both PC and Mac. It is a pointing device that functions by detecting and a 2D motion relative with the supporting device. The first pointing device can be traced to Xerox Alto. Microsoft and Apple both introduced this pointing device or mouse in the early 1980s. After the initial creation of the mouse, this product has undergone a sea of developments as well as changes.
Jewellers have taken the ordinary mouse and have created unique designs, using materials such as real gold and diamonds. The reason for this is to give the wealthy the ability to dress up their computers and make them as fashionable as possible. Here is a look at the most expensive computer mouse in the world.

The Gold Bullion Wireless Mouse :- 36,835 USD
The name suggests that the mouse looks more like a gold bullion or a gold brick. It is the costliest mouse in the world and priced at 36,835 USD. The mouse has both right and left buttons as well as a scroll wheel. It is compatible with both PC and Mac also.

Most Expensive Robbery in the World

Central Bank of Iraq (March 18, 2003 - Baghdad, Iraq 1 billion dollars !)
Most Expensive Robbery till now: Central Bank of Iraq(Over $1 Billion)
Most Expensive Robbery till now: Central Bank of Iraq(Over $1 Billion)
Over one billion dollars was stolen from the Central Bank of Iraq on March 18th, 2003. Was this robbery a result of careful planning? Or was it a result of brute force? Saddam Hussein treated Iraq as his own personal kingdom, so it’s no surprise that he would feel that the Central Bank of Iraq was his personal bank account.It was actually quite simple: Saddam Hussein sent his son named Qusay to make a withdrawal from the bank on behalf of a handwritten note before coalition forces began bombing Iraq. His son sat there as boxes filled with one hundred dollar bills were given to him. The entire operation took about five-hours. However, it didn't get him very far as he was later killed by US troops. Approximately $650 million was later found by US troops hidden in the walls of one of his palace’s, though the remaining $350 million has never been recovered and is considered lost.

World's Most Expensive TV

Have you ever wondered what the world’s most expensive TV was? Ok, so we go ahead and do the internet search and find Mr. Hughes’ 55 inch diamond encrusted Supreme Rose Edition Prestige HD, encased in 28 kilograms of 18 carat gold with the glowing price tag of $2,260,000… Ridiculous? Not even close. I’d personally prefer to call it “ingenious” and as long as the clients that are willing to fork out the money for some extreme bling are around, then why not? However, my question was if you've ever wondered about the world’s most expensive TV, not the world’s biggest hunk of gold with a screen in it.
The magic is called BeoVision 4-103; it was designed by David Lewis and manufactured in Denmark by the oldest and most luxurious audio-video company in the world: Bang & Olufsen. When you are looking for extreme TVs, this is the one where your search should stop, because not only is it the largest fully functional TV your money can buy, but the technology that is built inside of it – even though the design is a few years old – still outperforms anything that’s out on the market right now.
Most Expensive TV in the World
World's Most Expensive TV

Quick background on the technology: The BeoVision 4-103 is a 103 inch (diagonal screen size) full HD, 3D plasma TV. It features a built-in Home Theatre Processing Unit (BeoSystem 3) that will allow the owner to connect external B&O speakers to the TV in different configurations, to create a surround theatre system that is compatible with all existing surround encodings. It has a calibration camera built in to recalibrate the screen to factory settings after every 100 hours of use. This feature is to compensate for the plasma technology’s biggest nemesis, the shifting and diminishing of colors over time. The screen itself is mounted onto a motorized floor stand that can be moved around and tilted with the high frequency IR universal remote. It can be programmed to a number of preset positions, and it raises and lowers the TV when turning it on and off. The Peripheral Unit Control lets you connect multiple components (HD set-top box, Blu Ray player, etc.) to the TV without these components having to be “visible” for the remote, in other words; you can hide all the clutter and look at only what you are supposed to look at.
Before Bang & Olufsen even lets you buy one of these TV’s, they have to visit your home with a specialized team, to make sure not only that your floors are strong enough to hold the 1500 pound setup, but to see if it can even be brought inside. Now once it is inside, the theatre business will lose yet another client, because this true marvel of luxury engineering will keep you and your family watching movies for a very long time in the comfort of your own home. Oh yes, and what was that price tag again? You can own the Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 4-103 for a mere 145,000 Dollars, making it the most expensive TV in the world, in the category of TVs where you watch the screen, and not the bling around it.
