Whiskey: for optimal tasting, it’s best served around 60 – 65°F (15-18°C), but adding ice can actually dilute some of the flavor notes. So how can you chill your whiskey without diluting it? With whiskey stones, of course.
Plug this thing in, and all your games are toast, and so is your computer. For real. xXNokkenXx created this toaster PC by stripping down a stainless steel four-slice toaster, installing a wooden block at the base and mounting the components to that.
If I learned anything from Leonardo DiCaprio, it’s that we all need a totem, lest we might actually be stuck in a dream within a dream. If I had to choose one, I think I’d go with a top too, but something a bit cooler than the one he had in Inception.
Fidget spinners get a lot of hate. I think it’s in part because the name implies that the people who play with these things can’t control themselves, which isn’t the case. I can sit still as long as I want, but it’s kind of fun to have something in your hands you can fiddle with.
Most grills are just boxy or round things that you throw charcoal in or attach some propane to. Nothing fancy. They just do their job. They never really look beautiful. The Grillo from FormAxiom is the exception.
You can buy all kinds of graters, but most of them require you to grate your cheese directly over your meal like some barbarian. The Eva Solo Grating Bucket is a more elegant solution. It collects the shreds inside as you grate, allowing you to dispense them appropriately later.
After watching the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer several hundred times, now you are in the mood for more merchandise. While you can’t buy a rolling droid or a three-pronged lightsaber (yet), you can get yourself a cool ring or two.
If you like cold drinks, you have probably experienced the irritating dilution that comes as the ice in your cup melts. This is particularly troublesome if you’re into soft drinks that become diluted and lose their flavor or if you have a penchant for expensive liquor and you want your drink full strength.
Just like many Japanese watches, this new one from Tokyoflash looks somewhat hard to read, but apparently after having worn the watch for a day or so, you’ll be able to easily tell the time. But it’s not just the time-telling that makes this watch unique.
I’ve gotten so used to Tokyoflash having a corner on the cool digital watch market, that I’m always pleasantly surprised when another company comes along with a nifty LCD watch. Up until now, the guys over at Ziiiro have focused on analog designs (and putting too many ‘i’s in the name of their company.)
I’ve lost plenty of keys, off carabiners as well, so I’m always looking for a more secure option for my keys. Unlike carabiner keychains, KeySquare wasn’t designed to help you climb mountains, but it was specifically made for carrying your keys.
I recently had to quit caffeine for health reasons, so I’m always on the lookout for tasty beverages that I can substitute for my old cup of coffee. One of my personal favorites – especially on a cold winter night – is a cup of warm herbal tea.
Raiders of the Lost Ark is still one of my favorite movies of all time, and at the center of that film was the quest for the mysterious lost Ark of the Covenant. Now, you can own your own miniature version of the Ark, intricately crafted using 3D printing technology.
Nothing tastes yuckier than beer that’s gone stale. Of course, you could just pour that old lager down the drain – or you could prevent your brew from going stale by getting the Bräuler Modular Growler System.
Hey, when you have a new baby you have to make some major sacrifices. Less video games, maybe free up some room in the home. Stuff like that. IKEA Hacker Ian from Los Angeles had to give up his home office when a new baby was on the way.
