If you’re the kind of wine aficionado that has a drawers full of gadgets for opening bottles, chilling, preserving, aerating, etc— SYNEK has created fancy wine chiller/dispenser called “Somm” that should be right up your alley.

Somm employs a temperature control for chilling, aeration control for red wines and a method of automatically adjusting its settings based on a winemaker’s exact recommendations.

Unfortunately, the device only works with Sylo cans, which are designed to retain freshness for longer periods than an open bottle. The manufacturer reportedly has a number of wines lined up for production that represent a broad array of tastes.

Somm is also connected to an app that allows the user to check wine flavors and levels, ensuring that you’re never subject to an unexpected outage of booze. It even learns your palate over time and can auto-order on your behalf.

Check out more details about the Somm in the video below.

Swedish engineer Simone Giertz (aka the newest member of the Tested family and creator of such groundbreaking devices as the Breakfast Machine and the Automatic Chopping Machine) teamed up with former MythBuster Adam Savage to create a popcorn machine that can be worn on the noggin.

The one day build was described as an “international collaboration” which saw the duo work out a suitable mechanism via Skype. The creative process is detailed in the video below, as is the final result, which is basically a box that dispenses popcorn into a big hand that swings to the wearer’s mouth.

As you’ll see, it’s not practical, but it is hilarious.

Here at That’s Nerdalicious Industries (a division of MacLennan & Reeves Chemical Processing Inc.) we pride ourselves on our ability to find interesting and, dare we say, exciting refrigeration technology. From a fridge that looks like R2-D2, to a fridge that only opens if you sing “O Canada” at it, to another fridge that looks like R2-D2.

Now, in the year of our lord 2016 – the lord in question being Freon, God of Winter -we can bring you the pinnacle of geeky refrigeration methods: A fridge that looks like that one Jugger-Nog fridge from Call of Duty: Black Ops III‘s Zombie mode.

We know, we’re as shocked – and, indeed, as overjoyed – as you are. Likely you’re bobbing up and down in your chair as we speak like an excited cartoon bunny. Possibly you’d like to know more about this marvelous cooling apparatus. Well good news, because there’s an entire video showing its construction. Check it out below.

Panasonic is about to send apartment dwelling, regular oven having, aspiring chefs into a frenzy with the upcoming release of the world’s first ever countertop induction oven.

Panasonic’s Countertop Induction Oven calls upon the company’s more than 40-years history of innovation in induction heating technology. It quickly grills, bakes, toasts, and re-heats and requires little or no preheating, resulting in perfectly cooked meals. With pre-set menu options and adjustable temperature control, the Panasonic CIO takes the guesswork out of grilling steaks, cooking chicken and vegetables all at once but with results that are more flavorful — crispy on the outside and tender and moist on the inside.

The compact device will reportedly offer the same safety and efficiency that their full size counterparts are known for. Pricing information hasn’t been announced at this point, but the oven is currently slated for release in October 2016.

A genius innovator who loves to eat and hates to wash dishes devised a machine that produces edible spoons from store-bought dough.

Simply lay out the dough in the machine, wait three minutes and voila! You have an edible spoon that can be used to consume soups, stews, chilis, curries or any other scoopable food that goes well with bread.

There’s no word on when the device will be available or how much it will cost, but you can see it in action by checking out the demo video below.

If you’ve been around long enough to remember when the flying toaster screensaver was invading your massive, clunky computer monitor, you will likely appreciate this 3D version created by the DIY experts over at Make.

The project saw a classic toaster fitted with craft store feather wings that are operated via cables by servo. The final product will continue to brown your bagel, but won’t be flying around your kitchen.

See how the project came together in the video below.

IKEA Taiwan is hoping to resuscitate the art of conversation by eliminating smartphones from the dinner table. How you ask? The company has developed a new hotplate that will only function once a sufficient number of phones have been placed underneath it.

There doesn’t seem to be any details on how the plate actually operates, but apparently the more phones that are placed underneath it the hotter your food will get.

As revealed in the demonstration video below, its clear that everyone will now have the opportunity to sit around a table and talk about how much they miss their phone and how concerned they are they may be missing phone calls or emails.

captain america waffle maker

Tony Stark may be able to whip up any gadget, but the man behind the mask is just like the rest of us. He loves waffles but can’t make them look like an Arc Reactor. It’s a serious problem.

In fact, there aren’t any Iron Man-themed waffle makers on the market so far as we can tell. Now we know what really caused Civil War.

Fortunately, if you’re on Cap’s side you can get your shield waffle maker for $34.99.
