The Aeroccino 3 is a sleekly designed product about the size of a can of peaches that heats and froths milk to super fluffy consistency in about thirty seconds making for perfect cappuccinos, lattes or macchiatos.
The frother has a clever frothing mechanism consisting of a ring magnet rotor that fits over a vertical post inside the unit and spins rapidly in the presence of a rotating magnetic field, which is created in the stator coils embedded in its base.
What I like about it is that there is no waiting for steam to build up, no messy clean-up, no spatters on the counter top, no plunging a mechanical frother, etc. Just simply put the frothing rotor on the little post inside the vessel, pour in the milk to the graduated mark, press the button momentarily for warm froth or hold the button in for two seconds for cold froth. If you want warm milk with no froth, put on the non-froth rotor, pour in the milk and press the button. Voilà!
Ladder lockdown is a metal tray with super-grippy patches on its underside; set it down on any surface (including ice!) and then set your ladder’s feet in the tray and cinch it in place and the ladder won’t “kick out” and injure you and your loved ones.

Retroworks’ $18 decoder rings don’t have much by way of cryptographic robustness (they compare disfavorably to the cipher-wheel wedding rings my wife and I wear!), but they’re not a bad way to introduce the littlies in your life to the idea of habitual secrecy. (via Red Ferret)
