    Everbright: 21st Century Lite-Brite for Adults

    If you were born long enough ago there’s a good chance you remember playing with a Lite-Brite.

    Vinylify: Create Real Vinyl Records From Personalized Playlists

    Vinyl records are great for listening to music as it was meant to be heard, but they lack the heavy personalization of digital playlists or even mix CDs or cassettes. There’s a new service that allows users to bridge that gap, provided they don’t mind spending more than fifty bucks on a single record – […]

    MIRA Beer Growler Keeps Beer Cold for 24 Hours

    It feels like we cover a lot of beer growlers on this site, but barring some huge innovation in beer growler technology or an irresistibly stupid gimmick, this one might be the last. That’s because the MIRA Beer Growler appears to be the top of the line, not least because it can purportedly keep beer […]

    HefeWheaties Beer: The Breakfast of Champions

    I don’t know what’s going on over at Wheaties HQ, but someone must have decided that the brand’s commitment to physical fitness and health was only taking them so far, because now we have the officially licensed HefeWheaties beer from the Fulton craft brewery in Minnesota.

    Angel’s Cup: An App for Coffee Obsessives

    There seem to be two types of coffee drinkers out there – the kind that is satisfied with their own brand and won’t feel right until they’ve had a cup of that specific stuff, and the more adventurous type who’s always on the prowl for new coffee flavors and sensations.

    One day, all of us will die, and on our deathbed as we reflect on the events of our lives, I’m guessing that a lot of us will realize we spent way too much time trying to figure out what movie to watch. To avoid, or at least ameliorate, this fate, you might want to […]

    I didn’t know this until today, but apparently there’s entire subculture out there of people who are really into chewing ice (I don’t know why I’m surprised, but I am).

    Nebia: A New Kind of Shower (Video)

    Showers have been roughly the same for, I dunno, 75 years or so at least, with few innovations in the field really taking off in the mainstream. But evidently people are craving a new kind of shower experience that doesn’t cost a fortune either upfront or in wasted water, since the Nebia has already cracked […]
