Made By: Lantic Systems

A gold remote that can control your TV, DVD player, CD player, e-mail, burglary alarm and other things? Yes, such a device exists. Danish manufacturer Lantic Systems released their Gold RC1 remote in 2007 and aside from the fact that it can do so much, it's made out of pure gold. Pure gold. Sure, it's $55,000 but you can even use it to control stuff on your yacht*.

*We're assuming you own a yacht if you're ridiculous enough to purchase this remote.
