Is it cool enough to be called the Coolest? You decide. After months of anticipation (well, my 6-packs, margarita mix, and I were waiting with bated breath) the Coolest Cooler has finally launched its Kickstarter campaign....

$149.99 from ThinkGeek »

If you can solve this Rubik's Cube in 2 minutes or less I'll give you 1 million dollars. Awwww, shucks. Yeah, I did know the the segments don't actually move. Why else would I put the offer on the table? I don't think I even...

$9.99 from Amazon »

Who wants some genetically modified Fla-Vor-Ice? You know, push popsicles raised in a freezer that treats its snacks with growth hormones. Yeah, OK, fine. They're just supersized because their fruit juice/yogurt/smoothie embryos got dumped into ginormous FRIOPOP bags....

$349 from eCool »

All this cooler needs to keep beer cold is a shovel and 3 feet of ground. So, yeah. Throw one eCool in the bug out bag, Mama! Buried in the earth (and optionally also through a cut-out in wood decking or a concrete patio)...

$7.95 from Can Stamp »

Ever since the days of colonialism and the American Frontier...no...way before that. Ever since the days animals began eking out a drop more urine even when they didn't have to pee just so that they could piss on things, we...

$299 - $349 from Kickstarter »

I love this bar. It also happens to be my kitchen. Or so it will be if SYNEK and its creators have their way. The countertop draft system has been designed to serve any beer fresh from the tap, preserving its original taste and quality within patent-pending SYNEK bags, and allowing pint-to-pint bag swaps for 30+ days....

$999 - $1,200 from Natural Machines »

I am 0% surprised that someone made a 3D food printer. If we can print jewelry and home decor and machine parts and sugar, why shouldn't we be able to print dinner? Barcelona-based company Natural Machines has created the...

$29.95 from Amazon »

It's like the Hopside Down Beer Glass but with more of a bang. And I hear even better than a punctured aluminum can for shotgunning a Bud Light. As you can imagine, filling the the 50 Caliber Bullet Beer Glass requires minimal...

If bat shit looked like 1000mW of ice-blue lightning, the S3 Spyder III Arctic Laser would be the physical manifestation of bat shit crazy. As it stands, the world's most powerful laser is just fuckin' nuts. Wicked Lasers' (absolutely, 100% legal) handheld bolt of pure spectral power counts amongst its marketable skills the ability to: Sear through ornery plastic, pop bitch-ass balloons, burn continuously, 24/7, without sustaining damage to its laser diode, function in 9 different operating modes, including Strobe, Constant Wave, SOS, Beacon, and Tactical Hibernation, emit 0.25 Lux of light at a distance of 6,856 meters, turn anyone it hits in the eye at a distance of 149 meters or less into Ray Charles, minus the musical talent and soul.

And if that weren't enough to get it laid every day for the duration of its 5,000+-hour serviceable life, Guinness is currently testing the S3 Arctic for the official title of World's Most Powerful Laser.

The S3 Arctic Series Laser resides in an aircraft grade aluminum chassis that's smaller than a standard flashlight.

Mmm, forget the carbonated lager water, I'd like to pour one of those mocha porters into Kirin Ichiban's beer slushie machine. Caffeinated, drunk, and refreshed by hi-tech Japanese head: yes, that is exactly how I want to...

$41.46 from Amazon »

While Hario's Syphon vacuum pot coffee maker looks like a way more complicated way to get a cup of coffee than stopping by the drive-thru espresso stand in my grocery store's parking lot, the company deems the Syphon's method...

By: Flatev

I know store-bought tortillas aren't exactly a wallet vacuum, and making them yourself won't really save any money, but if Flatev's claims are to be trusted, this electric countertop tortilla churner requires 0 skills to operate...

$19.99 from Shot Straws »

First off, let me say that I do not advocate taking shots through a Shot Straw. I advocate taking shots like a real man. However, if the memory of particularly rough night with Minnesotan twins, a ZZ Top fan club, and free-flowing...

Dinner of Doom is served. And even if you can't procure authentic chilled monkey brains to fill this bowl, I'm sure the effect of serving a culinary horror can still be achieved with the addition of more readily available...

Saturday, March 8, 2014

What we are looking at here is either a bit of a hyperbole or the wine version of that lady who tamed Helen Keller and taught her to communicate. It's called the Miracle Machine. It asserts itself as the world's first affordable...

$144.88 from Amazon »

While the Fryin' Saucer, an outdoor propane deep fryer, can't perform as many tricks as the similarly-fashioned Blacktop 360 Party Hub grill, it is much more compact and portable, and could prove be kingdom come for anyone...

Big Boss Swirlio. Damn. A frozen fruit dessert machine came up with that name before I did. He's not even intimidating or dressed in a floor-length ferret fur coat. I bet the ladies love Big Boss Swirlio though. They'll eat...

One thing I do not particularly enjoy is sharing food. Tapas and family-style dining, blech. I want my own plates. Further, I want to clean them quickly and then leer at someone who's still got half of their dishes left until...

The Flatev homemade tortilla maker got some grumbles for its cost (likely $300 for the machine and $1 each for the tortilla pods) and true necessity as a kitchen gadget. So here's something way cheaper and probably way more...

I like inducing things alright. Normally it's the ire of others and a wicked hangover with fine Hornitos tequila. But now I can also induce the proverbial flames of fire with Duxtop's induction cooktop. And, even better, in...

Necessity, she is the mother of invention. Even if it takes decades--no, centuries!--of jagged edges and misshapen triangles. Of someone popularizing the word "rustic" to justify the serving of sloppy, ugly food. Necessity...

People think I drink only Kool-Aid and sodie pop because I'm immature and unrefined, but really it's because water is such a yawn. I need the excitement and intrigue of carbonation and colors insulting to nature in my beverages....

I have a hard time believing that fried food tastes like fried food if it's not fried fully submerged in the succulent greasiness of oils corn, palm, peanut, or pig. But, since I'd prefer not to have my first dance with heart...

$1,699 - $2,099 from PicoBrew »

Even at a $1,600 investment, it would really only take about 6 weeks of home brewing for me to recoup the cost of a PicoBrew Zymatic in consumed beer. For me, a 6-pack of brewskis that doesn't taste like a donkey's bunghole...

$29.99 from Rollie »

Something about the cylindrical results of the Rollie Eggmaster cooking system makes me a little uncomfortable. Is it that the tube of eggs looks too artificial? Too space agey? Too science projecty? Too anal probey? I can't...
