It’s always a selling point when whisky, wine, or other spirits are aged in oak casks, and there’s a good reason for it: aging alcohol in oak makes it taste better (richer, deeper) than it would otherwise. Oak-aged spirits usually command a premium compared to other varieties, but now you can upgrade your own alcohol by using the Oak Bottle. The Oak Bottle is the first “for-home-use” barrel-aging vessel. Now anyone can take an average bottle of wine or whiskey to new heights, or bring out new flavors in their favorite wine or beer. Here’s something I didn’t know until I read…

Founded in 2014, Makerbloks, has let over 40 million children in the United States be able to create, build, and design real electronic circuits, with little to no prior knowledge. I’m not even a child and to be honest with you, I might have to use this myself, haha. The color-coded, magnetic blocks will guide children through the basics of electronic circuits and it’s fun natured approach will keep kids immersed;…
There’s nothing worse than having tangled headphones. And regardless of what anyone tells you, tangle-free doesn’t work 100% of the time either. So when Peter Chin launched the NEET Cable Keeper Go, a solution to tangled earbuds through Kickstarter, we had to take a glance.
As a kid, I watched Home Improvement and always as a result of watching Tim “The Toolman” Taylor I wanted a tool belt. So there was no surprise when I looked at Kickstarter and saw the Mag-Vest, a new project that looks to reinvent the concept of bulky fannypack-like tool belts, I was interested.

Warm beer, It’s one of the worst things you can possibly show up with to a friend’s party.

You’ve got to Keep-It-Cold.
If you’re over the age of 21, chances are you’ve played beer pong, and lets be honest, you’ve probably played in some less than clean conditions. And one thing you probably never through about after facing 16-20 cups of beer is how disgusting the balls can get after hitting the floor.
