AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill P200. That contraption you see Kobe using is AlterG's Anti-Gravity Treadmill. Specially designed to lessen the wear-and-tear on people recovering from injury, the treadmill bears most of the weight of the user, creating the "weightlessness" of low gravity. The P200 version goes for $75,000 and up, but spare no expense getting your loved one back on the playground basketball court. [AlterG]

Prince Squash Starter Kit. Squash is an underrated game. It's really easy to learn, you get to smash a ball at high speeds into walls and your friends, and most gyms have a spare court somewhere. What more could you want? [Amazon]

Dunlop Play Smash 4 Player Badminton Set. Ditto everything said about squash for badminton. With this, though, you don't need to rely on a gym and can set up your own court in the backyard. Plus, you get to say shuttlecock a bunch of times. [Amazon]

Smith I/O Goggles. The description of these goggles has a bunch of technical details that are probably impressive to real snowboarders. So yeah, get these for real snowboarders. [evo]
