Since isopods are a thing that’s popular in Japan, we now have an isopod tea infuser. It was only a matter of time I suppose.

Unfortunately, you’ll have to travel to the Numazu Deepblue Aquarium in Japan’s Shizuoka Prefecture to get one. One user commented that tea kept gushing out of the crustacean’s bottom holes, making it “grosser than expected”… We imagine that its weird looking smile didn’t help.

Getting a little bored with your basic cocktail? Well, you should consider adding a few bubbles into the mix to liven things up. That’s right—you can actually turn your preferred adult beverage into bubbles with this kit.

It comes in a pack of 6 bottles, each containing 25ml of bubble solution with space remaining in the bottle to add ANY beverage you fancy – lemonade, cola, cold-press coffee, gin, tequila – anything (well, not thick liquids like milk). Screw the lid back on, give the bottle a gentle rock and just like that, your favourite drink has been transformed into bubbly deliciousness, ready to be blown all over the place with the included wands.

Think of the fun you could have at parties! It’s like apple bobbing for drunken adults. Just make sure to leave your dignity at home.

So that’s one small latte. Would you like art on that?

Japanese artist Kohei Matsuno can transform a simple cup of coffee into something magical, and Utah-based Kuma Films caught his process on film. Check out the video below, along with additional photos of Matsuno’s amazing work. [click to continue…]


Instagram user Melaquino has been crafting latte art for the last four years, and judging by her photos and videos, you can tell that she’s already mastered the medium.

bb8 teapot

This Star Wars BB-8 teapot is certainly cute, but it appears to be pretty clever too. The teapot can be nested inside a cup to create a vaguely roundish shape.

Still, rolling will prove problematic—and 3rd degree burny.

OK, I’m never drinking coffee out of a cup again.

The Grind Coffee Company in Johannesburg, South Africa has become Instagram famous for their speciality coffee beverage: a small latte served in a chocolate-coated ice cream cone.

Dayne Levinrad, the barista who came up with the idea for Coffee In A Cone, says that the drink is incredibly popular. So much so, that people come from across the world just to taste (and grab a photo of) the drink. Levinrad notes that the coffee-cone is one of the most popular beverages on Instagram, and the hashtag #coffeeinacone has popped up on over 1 million pics so far this year.

The best part of waking up is assimilation in your cup.

Unfortunately, since you are separated from the Collective and your human physiology is asserting itself, you may be required to take in nutrients if you do not have ready access to an alcove. That is why we have provided you with a Star Trek Borg Cube Mug during your time away. It will remind you of “home” during your time with Species 5618, as well as provide you with any energy your human physiology may demand for its biological functions. We recommend you partake of caffeine, a molecule which synthesizes in a particularly effective way with humans’ cellular chemistry.

Resistance against the caffeine is futile.

Las Vegas-based barista Mason Salisbury has raised the bar for latte artists everywhere by creating intricate foam leaf patterns with food dye.

The process involves steaming milk before infusing it with dye and pouring it into the cup. He then uses his skills to create colorful foamy art.

Check out some videos and photos of his caffeinated creations below.

Geek store Cognitive Surplus has created a line of glassware for chemistry buffs that feature the molecular makeup of the beverages they’re designed hold. The line includes glasses suited to water, coffee, beer, wine and whiskey.

Besides being educational, the glasses are reportedly printed with eco-friendly ceramic ink for a raised rough texture. The ink also fires on at temperatures of up to 1,200°F and becomes part of the finish, so the image won’t peel, flake, or scratch.
