    Bartesian: “The Ultimate Cocktail Machine”

    If you think about it, it’s kind of weird that the alcoholic imbibers of the world haven’t gotten a machine that enables and rewards their efforts the way that coffee addicts have.

    How’s this for a nightmare scenario: You’re out there in the desert, having been separated from your group, dying of thirst, and you come across a lone keg in the wilderness.

    Arctican Koozie Keeps Beverages Cold for 3 Hours

    Beer and soda koozies are great from a purely tactile standpoint, and I know we all enjoy using them from time to time, particularly in the summer. But how well do they actually work?
