If you have a house, and love wine you may want to consider The Spiral Wine Cellar ($25,000+). Spiral cellars are sunk into your homes foundation. It can be placed in the garage, basement, kitchen, pretty much anywhere on the ground floor or basement. It maintains optimum humidity, temperature and darkness and is reinforced with a concrete ring so it does not interfere with the integrity of your homes foundation. Installation takes 3-9 days and the cellar can hold between 650 and 1,870 bottles of wine depending on the size you get. More pics after the break.(more…)
The season of the festival is upon us, and if you're anything like me keeping tracking of everything you need or where its located can be difficult during the day let alone at night. But never fear Victorinox has created the Swiss Army Knife of festival apps with the introduction of Festival Ready ($FREE). Festival Ready has a number of tools to make everything run smoothly. It marks your campsites location, provides you with a packing checklist, live weather reports, ticker messaging, sound flares, and a torch. When its late at night and everything starts looking the same, this is one app you'll be happy you have.
What a brilliant idea. Sony has just killed two birds with one stone, with the release of the SONY LED LIGHT BULB SPEAKER ($199). The speaker has the model number "LSPX-100E26J" and will be released in Japan on May 23rd. It takes an LED light bulb and combines it with a Bluetooth speaker. The whole kit screws into a standard light bulb socket. You can control the 360-lumen light with a smartphone app that can control the volume of the speaker and the brightness of the light. The sound is delivered by a 40mm, 2-watt, full-range speaker. It won't blow your socks off, but should be good enough for some nice background music. The Light Bulb Speaker also comes with a remote control just in case you don't have a phone near by. No details yet on when it will be released to the states.
Revel in retro style but with a contemporary twist with the Fern & Roby Turntable ($6500) which is an incredible piece of audio engineering. A heavyweight 35lb bronze platter supported by a solid cast iron base creates an impressive piece of equipment which is perfectly balanced to 1000 RPM. Your sounds will be clean, fresh and crystal clear due to the low friction and vibration dampening design, which is centered in the middle to provide you with a superior performance time after time.
Aston Martin look set to bring their A game to the table once again with an ambitious team up with the Milan-based designer Andrea Zagoto. The concept for the new Vanquish model dubbed the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagoto ($TBA) features a much lighter body shell and a more striking interior that features both herringbone carbon fibre consoles and leather seating. Prices and a release date are still to be set but knowing the names involved we’d recommend you start saving now.
The Mammuth Rewarron ($5,500+) is a man-sized 1:3 scale R/C toy. If you aren't sure what the 1:3 means, it means this guy is about 1/3 the size of a real car, measuring 6.5 feet in length, weighing about 176 pounds. The 4 stroke engine gets you to 40 mph. Onboard electronics include a touch screen controller, traction control, and telemetry. Now the Mammuth Rewarron goes all the way up to $15,000 and for that price you can find a great deal on a vintage ride you can actually drive. But if that doesn't dissuade you, check out the video of the Rewarron in action.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfgQ_YW8ezA
