Steins of Science: Science I Can Get Behind
January 1st, 2011
I think it’s really cool when you make stuff out of other stuff and the stuff you make out of that other stuff actually serve a purpose and stuff. Know what I mean? Such is the case with Steins of Science. These things are beer and beverage steins that are made out of things you would generally find in a science lab.
The real coolness of the Steins of Science is the ability of the steins to keep your frosty beverage cool. The steins come in a variety of sizes – with some apparently made from stainless steel and others made from silvered glass. That last one will come in handy if you happen to drink with Van Helsing. The stein is made from two layers of the silvered glass with a vacuum between them that is 100,000 times stronger than a Thermos. What all that means is that the vacuum prevents any heat for hitting your beer and any cold from your beer from escaping from the sides of the container.
These things aren’t cheap though, with prices ranging from $250 to $515 (USD) depending on the size and materials.
