Having grown up in Toronto, I'm accustomed to morning car de-icing being a lengthy and exhausting process involving a lot of grunting and scraping (I'm always amazed to see Londoners whose idea of de-icing gear is the edge of their credit-card for the odd frosty morning).

This serious tool packs 360 degrees of ice clearing performance, including 13 Flexiblade scraping fingers, and Tenderizers for softening up the hardest ice that you’ll find on your windshield.

The curved bottom of the cup peeks through your drink as the level drops down, moving the “moon” from full to a fingernail-paring sliver. Of course, it works better if you drink something cloudy and white — it’s designed some cloudy Korean rice-wines, but would also work with Pernod and water, I’m thinking.
The Lytro Illum dares to be different, boasting even more robust features than its first generation predecessor and a sleek design reminiscent of professional DSLRs. What’s so cool about it? Most cameras capture the position of light rays, producing a statoc 2D image. But the Illum’s cutting-edge technology records the direction of these rays, generating […]
