All right, Coke, Dr. Pepper and Mountain Dew. We’ve had it with you. We’re just gonna start making our own soda, and now it’s going to be a lot easier thanks to the Sodastream SOURCE machine, which allows you to produce a selection of sodas with six different flavors and full control over the level of carbonation that the drink receives. The machine itself is a masterwork of design from the world famous Yves Behar, who has wrapped this bad boy in aluminum and fitted it with a BPA free container for carbonation purposes – you shall not pass into Read More
Making coffee – that’s actually good - is a real pain in the behind, right? Well with the BISTRO it is decidedly less so. The people behind the BISTRO Electric Coffee Dripper, or basically your own personal Starbucks machine, claim that bitter, shit-tasting coffee is a thing of the past with one of their newest incarnations. The BISTRO coffee dripper boasts several advantages over your garden variety Mr. Coffee, like the high quality, removable (for cleaning) water tank linked to the filter via a glass-constructed pipe. Its filter, a titanium-plated and silicone work of art itself, needs no paper lining; from Read More
You just have to know how everything works, do you? Well, put that theory to the test with the Oncle Sam from Low-Tech Factory. The contraption from designers Laurent Beirnaert, Pierre Bouvier, and Paul Tubiana takes the explosive multi-hatching of the traditional bowl of popcorn and breaks it down into a fully transparent, one-kernel-at-a-time process. While gear-heads may marvel at the craftsmanship, it may not be as appealing to those of us who like to grab fistfuls at a time of sweet buttery goodness. On the other hand, it will cause one to savor and enjoy each piece of popcorn Read More
Hip, forward-thinking people know that dirty fossil fuels are the past and that green, clean, renewable forms of energy – e.g. solar, wind, turbine, hydroelectric – must start to come mainstream to preserve our beautiful, yet now-fragile planet. The BioLite CampStove stands out as a shining example toward those ends. Outdoor adventurers will likely find it incredibly useful and innovative. Food is cooked with nothing more than a charge and a few twigs (or pine cones, wood chips, etc.), eliminating the need for dingy containers of gas. Think that’s the only benefit? Nope. CampStove transforms the heat produced by fire Read More
“New,” “revolutionary”: They’re practically staple terms assigned to the majority of “new” and “innovative” household products. The only problem? There’s just nothing new or revolutionary about 95% of the thousands of household gimmicks that come out annually. Will the trendy-looking, spongy ‘Dish Nest’ contraption live up to the usual hype, though? That said, we’re not here to plug the WAVE Dish Nest system (granted, though, maybe that’s inevitable to an extent). Though, the Dish Nest is actually much more than meets the eye. Not only does the little device – constructed of silicon and polypropylene – fold and contour to Read More
Marshall Amps, known for their, well… amps, are bringing cold drinks to the party. The Marshall Fridge is an actual fridge that was designed to look just like a classic Marshall amp half stack. It has all of the authentic Marshall parts and styling, including power and standby switches, and control knobs. Of course, you won’t actually be controlling anything. But with 4.4 cubic feet of fridge storage space, and an integrated top shelf freezer, the beer sure will be cold.
