Beer Tracker gadget will stop you getting drunk (maybe)

beer-tracker.jpeg

Every summer we come across a new bottle opening gadget, whether it's attached to a phone case or looks like a kitten. However, this is probably the most handy and sensible one we've ever seen...

The Beer Tracker opens up your bottles for you, but also keeps track of how many you've consumed throughout the night. So, assuming you can still see the numbers, you'll know when you've had one too many.

Available from FredFlare for $10.

My Lunchbox heats up food from your laptop

my-lunchbox-device.jpeg

There could be no more queuing in the office kitchen waiting to use the microwave in the not so distant future, as the handy My Lunchbox gadget allows you to carry your food to work in style AND heat it up straight from your desk.

All you need to get the My Lunchbox working is your computer or laptop nearby, as it comes with a USB-enabled base, which enables you to hook it up and then heat it up. The clever device will even send a message to your desktop once it's ready to eat. Awh how thoughtful!

Stop and Smell the Margaritas

Refine.jpg

Even the busiest gadget gal needs to take a break and re-charge sometimes. Whether it's a night out with girl's or at the end of a really l-o-n-g day, sometimes a margarita is the perfect tonic.

But as every woman knows, margaritas have, like, a zillion calories (on average, 300-500 calories.) Who needs that? So we were happy to discover Refine Mixers which are all-natural and zero calories. While many mixers contain high fructose corn syrup or sugar, these mixers are made with Stevia - an all-natural and zero calorie herbal sweetener. And since it's an herbal sweetener, it has zero impact on blood glucose levels. The only calories you’re getting are from the alcohol (figure 100 for tequila in a regular-sized margarita. (If you serve a fish-bowl sized one, you're on your own!)

Refine makes our favorite mixers - Margarita, Mojito and Cosmopolitan - and we have diligently tried all three and can report that they taste great. Not as sweet as most commercial products, the margarita mix is a perfect blend of blend of lemon and lime, and you can add to taste. For example, we like to add a splash of OJ and a dash of Triple Sec. (Of course, then they're not calorie free.)

So stop and smell the margaritas guilt-free. Cheers!

Check out these salt and pepper shakers in the shape of magic wands to go with your quirky unicorn chopsticks! Sprinkle a little magic over your next meal and make it look like you're granting a wish. They're a little impractical when it comes to storing them and keeping them upright, but they'll be a huge hit among little ones at Christmas time.

If you know someone who uses chopsticks for most of their meals, then these quirky little unicorn utensils will make a functional gift this Christmas. Yes they look a little bit silly and unnecessary, but we're all for jazzing up our mealtimes and adding a little bit of fairy-tale magic into our daily routine!

Bodum Coffee and Tea Maker looks like a science lab!

coffee-lab2.jpg

coffee-lab.jpg

We love this new coffee and tea making appliance from kitchen experts Bodum, which looks a little bit like a crazy science experiment, right?!

Basically you put your water and coffee or tea leaves into the first small glass reservoir, you then attach it to the device to start the brewing process and it'll then trickle down into the cute glass tumblers below. The glass reservoir, which looks a little like a bubble, has an integrated beverage filter and as Yanko Design points out, that makes any kind of drink you're making completely spill-proof the whole time.

The device looks pretty unique anyway, but also comes in a range of colors including cherry red, lime green, black and white.

Label turns into soap for your fruit

apple-washlabel.jpg

We love this label idea from Scott Amron, which acts as a regular sticker you'd find on your favourite fruit, but it also turns into soap when you wash it off. This is handy for making sure you're eating a clean apple and also means you don't have to mess around picking off the tacky residue you'd usually find after removing a label.

In My Fridge provides people with a better understanding of food

inmy-fridge.jpg

We love this fridge design from Fabian Kreuzer and Markus Lorenz Schilling which was featured on Yanko Design last week.

It's part of a new project called In My Fridge, which aims to simplify the process of food management by using RFID technology to collect data about quantity of food, expiration dates and even recipes. All of the information is displayed on a handy touchscreen, which also allows the owner to see what's inside without opening the door.

It's an innovative idea which we're convinced could not only help reduce the amount of food we all throw away each year, but could also help us to be more aware when it comes to what we're putting into our bodies.

Brand Table uses NFC technology to order food

BrandTable Concept from S_Digital on Vimeo.

We've heard of near field communication or NFC technology being used to make mobile payments (go check out Google Wallet if you haven't already), but a student from the University of Sydney has integrated this kind of simple, transactional technology into tables at restaurants so that customers can quickly and easily order food.

Basically, stickers are placed on a table and then people can use their devices to tap them, pull up a menu on the screen, place an order AND make a payment all in one go without them even having to move. It's convenient, innovative, but possibly a little lazy!

Watch the video above to see how the new NFC project dubbed Brand Table works.
