Beer Bottle Stein Lid Is Cool, Somewhat Useful

beer-bottle-stein-lid-1-595x496

You guys remember the Das Can in Stein attachment that turned any beer can into a cool beer Stein. Well, the Oktoberfest Party Favor Beer Bottle Stein Lid isn’t quite that elaborate, but it’s still awesome. It’s a metal lid that clips onto the side of a standard beer bottle and prevents insects from taking a swim in your drink; in the process it makes it look a little bit like a Stein. It’s just a quirky way to decorate your drink with a smidge of functionality on the side. At $9, there are worse novelty items to spend your money on.

WINKpen Can Use Any Liquid, Even Wine, To Write

winkpen-4

We live in a disposable society, or at the very least a society that seems too comfortable with the idea of throwing away things once they’ve outlived their apparent usefulness. But Portland-based designer Jessica Chan created the WINKpen as a way to go against our throwaway trend, and promoting sustainability, by creating the WINKpen. The writing implement can use any staining liquid as ink, like beer, tea, and even wine.

Unlike other fountain pens, where the ink usually comes out of a metal nib, WINKpen’s nib is made of glass. Spiraled grooves in the glass nib feed “ink” to the paper, producing a more pleasant aesthetic effect. Additionally, using glass offers the advantage of avoiding corrosion, plus it’s easier to clean.

It’s an interesting concept, if only a little unnecessary and unfortunately a bit overpriced. A WINKpen will cost you a rather hefty $60 pledge.

This Is The Trash Can You’re Looking For

trash-r2

R2-D2. Trashcan. Yes, it’s R2-D2, and it’s a trashcan. Is it blasphemous? Is it cool? We can’t tell. All we know is that Star Wars fury is once again in full swing, and perhaps as dynamic as the movie marketing machine is, so is the merchandising craze. There are Star Wars… things up the wazoo these days, and people are gobbling them up with renewed fervour. The Star Wars R2-D2 Trashcan is an officially licensed Lucasfilm collectible, and is sold exclusively by ThinkGeek in the US. The head pops open when you press Artoo’s foot, to reveal an 11″ tall inner waste bin. And like any self-respecting officially licensed Star Wars collectible, it’s not cheap: $129.

This Machete is A Spatula

machete-spatula-1-595x595

Or is this spatula a machete? Whichever way you choose to look at it, the Machete Spatula is one badass looking piece of BBQing instrumentation. And if flipping your burgers with what looks like a terrifying weapon isn’t manly enough, there are not one but three bottle-opening hooks on the side of the blade. We’re getting some giggles imagining the scene that would have you popping some caps off beer bottles, while flailing this large chunk of metal around, only to settle down and flip a burger or two. That’s what BBQ fun is all about, and you can get the Machete Spatula for £11.99, or around $19USD.
