MAKING WAVES
Calling it the world’s first “high-speed personal sports amphibian,” Gibbs has created the Quadski. Equipped with a BMW motor, it is capable of reaching 45 miles per hour on land and water. Its jet units are lighter than traditional marine-industry water jets and provide high levels of thrust and maneuverability. $42,000; gibbssports.com

NOSTALGIA TRIP
The McIntosh MT5 precision turntable grabs your attention with its illuminated platter. But there’s much more to this award-winning model than a light show.
