Made as a robotics kit for the everyman, the EZ Robot Kits make building, customizing, and programming your own robot accessible to anyone — even if you don't have a degree in engineering or computer science. With three chassis available (a hexapod, a humanoid, and a tracked roller) you can build on each with modular components like arms, legs, servos, sensors, and cameras. Their EZ-Builder software lets you construct robots digitally before assembling them, and write programs with a simple-to-use interface, letting you share your creations across the community. And for those feeling a little more adventurous, you can even 3D-print pieces for your robot at home.
There's nothing better than waking up to the smell of freshly-cooked bacon. Now you can enjoy that experience every morning with Oscar Mayer Wake Up & Smell The Bacon. This simple device plugs into the bottom of your iPhone, and works in parallel with a specially-designed app to release the unmistakable scent of premium bacon at the selected time, making everyday — whether it's a work day or the weekend — a little bit easier to face.
Buffalo Trace continues to innovate with their Experimental Collection and the most recent release, Extended Stave Drying Time. The wood planks that make up a bourbon barrel are dried out in the open air for about six months before being turned into barrel planks. Stave drying plays an important role in the taste of the bourbon, so Buffalo Trace decided to experiment by allowing the staves for this spirit to dry out for about twice as long. The extended drying time bourbon is significantly aided by the extra time too, balancing the oak flavors that can sometimes dominate in an older bourbon. Snag both bottles and try them side by side with a friend for the full experience.
Finally, some porn you can leave out on the coffee table without upsetting your parents. Cabin Porn is a labor of love from the blog of the same name, offering up the story of the owners' Beaver Brook cabin, as well as ten other cabins and their builders, complete with stunning photography by Noah Kalina and stories from Steven Leckart. Oh, and hundreds of other cabins submitted by the Cabin Porn community.
