You are probably aware that your sense of smell plays a huge role in how your food tastes. You probably weren't aware that there's a fork that lets you play around with scents without actually changing what's going in your mouth. The Aromafork features a slot for blotter paper built into the handle, letting you drop essences of 21 different aromas — sorted into Beans, Fruits, Herbs, Nuts, Spices, and Umami — and experiment with the relationship between your nose and your mouth.
Brewing tea, brewing coffee, or infusing a liquid with flavor — all done every day, all over the world. But not like this. The Bkon Craft Brewer is aiming to revolutionize the brewing process with a technology it calls RAIN — Reverse Atmospheric INfusion. Basically, it does its magic in a vacuum chamber, using negative pressure (and lower temperatures) to coax every bit of flavor out of your tea, herbs, fruit, or whatever else you put in there and blend it perfectly with the liquid of your choosing. Oh, and it takes only a minute for tea, and a couple for vodka. And it sports a touchscreen that's pre-loaded with hundreds of recipes and hooked to the cloud for sharing/downloading more, meaning all you need is some tea, some water, and a finger to tap the screen.
Never mind the fact that it's named after a song about killing an ex-lover — the Hey Joe Coffee Mug will bring a smile to your face faster than a Hendrix solo. How, you ask? By brewing your coffee in the mug itself, anytime, any place. It's powered by a detachable, USB-rechargeable battery, and instead of heating your coffee to hell and gone then making you wait for it to cool, it heats the water precisely so you can start enjoying it as soon as it's done brewing.
