Mp3 Sunglasses – Oakley Thump [Priced at $250]

Oakley Thump invented a sunglass with inbuilt mp3 player in 2004. Yes, it was before the Google Glass revealed. The sunglass was of the awkward design and poor built quality.

Sony Tablet P [Priced at $299]

Tablet P launched in 2012 with its unique design and the dual display was not able to attract people. The tablet was priced $299 not for its performance, but for its design.
