Imperial Spherificator Turns Almost Any Food Into Edible Pearls

imperial-spherificator-1

You might have heard of Spherification. It’s a trend among food lovers that involves turning common ingredients into caviar-like pearls of flavour. The process usually revolves around turning the food into mush, mixing it with Alginate (a seaweed extract), putting it into a syringe and injecting little droplets into a mixture of water and calcium chloride to create the pearls. You can then use these to flavour and accompany your foods while elevating your presentation to that of an actual chef. Well, with the Imperial Spherificator, you can do all this more easily. The device handles all the aspects of spherification for you, so that what you’re left after each batch is between 200 and 250 pearls to use in your cooking. It comes with a recipe booklet and clear instructions on how to achieve the best results each time.

It’s still doing the Kickstarter dance, so it’ll cost you a $125 pledge to own one. It comes with 100g of Alginate and 100g of Calcium Chloride, the two key ingredients.

The Stick-Lets are a set of silicone connectors that are used to, well, connect branches together in an effort to create a self-standing structure. They come in different shapes, allowing you to build your treehouse/fort with whatever loose sticks or branches you find. You can stretch them over and over, and use them and reuse them almost indefinitely. It’s a fun activity to do with your kids, or by yourself if you fancy the outdoors a lot.

This Car Racing Simulator Costs More Than A Racing Car

Hammacher-Schlemmer-suspended-racing-simulator-2

You’re looking at the world’s “Most Realistic Racing Simulator”. It looks pretty badass. And it costs $185,000. That’s a lot of dollars. For that amount of dollars you could probably buy a half decent racing car, and you know, actually race it. You could buy a bunch of cheap racing cars and practice crashing those if you’re not very skilled, then still have money left over for an upgrade or two once you get better. But hey, don’t let our practical minds deter you from this piece of tech.

This is the simulator that provides riders with the most realistic car racing experience available. Selected by Ford Motor Company to demonstrate ride experiences, the simulator uses linear servo actuators that cause its suspended, monocoque fiberglass chassis to roll, pitch, and rotate 360° at up to 0.5G acceleration. Faithfully reproducing actual racing conditions such as entering a turn at 200 MPH or moving up a bank in the slipstream of an opponent, the chassis’ front dips when braking at hairpins, pushes forward when accelerating during passes, and rumbles when driving on an apron, all while a driver up to 300 lbs. is secured by an actual racing seat, seatbelt, and “doors”. Its two paddle gear shifters, steering wheel, accelerator, brake, and clutch—all from real race cars and modified for simulator use—provide rapid gear changes and provide adjustable travel for optimal realism. The force-feedback steering system generates 10x the forces of lesser simulators. Providing 12 race cars that include stock, GT, F1, and F3 models, the simulator replicates precisely modeled signage and backgrounds for 16 short, tri-oval, or road courses, ranging from Joesville Speedway to Nuerburg on a 108″-wide, triple HD monitor display with a 500-watt audio system

So yeah, there you have it. The racing simulator to end all racing simulators. It weighs 2,100lbs, and costs, as mentioned, $185,000.

Arckit Is Like LEGO For Budding Architects

Arckit

Building stuff out of LEGO is great, but you’re always aware that you’re looking at LEGO pieces; stuff made like this has a distinctive look and feel to it. But if you’re into creating more realistic structures, Arckit may have what you’re looking for. It’s dubbed “The Architectural Model Building Tool”, and contains modular pieces allowing you to construct modern looking homes in all shapes and forms.

ARCKIT is a freeform model building tool that allows architects and everyone to physically explore designs and bring their projects to life. The interconnecting components use no glue and are completely modular, making it possible to create a diverse range of scaled structures that can be used as working models to communicate ideas to clients and to showcase finished projects.

The kits come in four sizes, called AGo, A60, A120, and A240. The numbers represent the possible maximum floor area in square meters, and kits feature 160+ pieces, up to 620+ pieces for the A240. Additional component packs can be purchased, although prices for the entire range are not on the lower side. AGo costs €59.99, or roughly $65USD, while A240 will set you back a hefty €339, or about $376USD.

rainbow-roller-e1437767549970

If you have to ask why you’d want a paint roller that paints rainbows, we can’t offer you a sensible answer. Just because it’s cool, we guess?

You’ll have to put in a little effort to make your own, but clear instructions are provided. Once you’ve finished, you can then set to add some color to your environment, which we urge you to do in a legal manner, of course.
