$99 - $249 from Pro-Defense »

Designed originally for law enforcement and military use, Pro-Defense calls their F4 Tactical rail-mounted pepper spray the non-lethal alternative. Which I take to mean getting hit by a solid stream of it is still going to hurt worse than the cumulative effect of hammering my thumb, slicing my finger, having my heart broken, eating one too many bean burritos, and stepping on a LEGO. Able to shoot...

So now, in deference to our readers who possess a prudent nature and/or empty wallet, we are showing you the more reasonably priced ferrofluid bottles above. They're still interactive. Maybe a little less sculpture-y looking, but...

$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...
