The Internet age has allowed a new boom in capitalism as people offer pretty much any thing or service you need on the World Wide Web.
We have gone in search of some of the craziest items and services you can purchase… and our list may lead to a raised eyebrow or two!
A Giant Personal Mech Suit
It may not surprise you that a Japanese company is the mastermind behind this, but Sakakibara-Kikai offer mechanised robotic soldiers, called Land Walkers for a cool $400 000.
With two working gun mounts and over 2 tonnes of robot to work with, the logistics to get this behemoth-killing machine into your back yard are astronomical. That said; it is easily the most unique father’s day present you can get.
On the downside the top speed of this mechanised suit is less than 1 mile per hour and instead of firing 50 calibre rounds, the side mounted guns fire plastic balls instead. Now that price tag seems a tad high.

The quickest, simplest and safest way to instantly kill yourself, wing suits have gained immense notoriety thanks to the multitude of Go Pro videos of users having rather nasty accidents. They usually range between $600 and $1000, but this is definitely not an example of where you want to shop around for the cheapest one. If you are going to buy a wing suit, rather splurge on the quality one.
Wing suits may be the ultimate adrenaline rush, but of course you would more than likely need to fork out extra for a plane ticket to some scenic location where you can put your suit through its paces. Rather than just wearing it at the drive-through to impress the cashiers!
Someone To Stand In Line
Probably the cheapest item on this list, more and more sites are popping up where people can sign up and offer their time to stand in line for you.
Like Uber for lazy cinophiles, sites like Line Standing can connect you with a great pair of legs to save you the effort of battling for theatre tickets.
A Glitter Bomb
Revenge is not a dish best served cold. It is a dish best served in rainbow colours. Online stores are selling wide ranges of items called glitter bombs.
These devilish things spray an unsuspecting recipient of your package with glitter from an explosive device, making an unholy mess that is nearly impossible to clean up properly. Reserved only for the worst of the worst.
A Paintball Turret
I change my mind. The paintball turret should be reserved for the worst of the worst. There are many models of auto-firing paintball cannons out there, but the Mercenary is one of the very few that makes use of a sophisticated, automated turret inspired, design.
You can setup the Mercenary almost anywhere and program it with a set of perimeters to take out your enemies or just annoy strangers. Paintballs are not included.
See, you can buy just about everything online, and the Internet has clearly proven there’s a market for just about whatever you can imagine– or can’t!
