The Thirst Mutilator is making the jump from the big screen to your local 7-Eleven. As you'll recall, Brawndo was the sports drink that replaced water, even for crop irrigation (it's got what plants crave!), in Mike Judge's cult hit Idiocracy. Well, starting next week, you too will be able to spurn water and start your own dependency on Brawndo ($TBA). True to its movie roots, the lemon-lime energy drink is bright green "with a smooth tangy flavor" and 200 mg of caffeine, electrolytes, inositol and guarana. We're not sure if this is really awesome or really sad. But either way, the future is coming. And it doesn't look smart. [via]

Made of satin-finished stainless steel, the iconic design features two functional dents in the lid, making it more than just another pretty object for your kitchen or bar.

It's January: your motivation to eat better and be healthier is at its peak. While you're making time to hit the gym, make sure you're getting the nutrients and fuel your body needs. Care/of takes the guesswork out of finding the right vitamins and supplements for your individual needs. After a short quiz about your diet and health concerns, they recommend the vitamins you need and deliver a month's supply directly to your door in convenient, travel-friendly daily packets. Plus, they even have your name on them. It's an easy health hack if you're focused on taking care of yourself this year.

The Heineken DraughtKeg ($20) combines two of our favorite things — beer and technology. A little shorter than a 2-liter of Pepsi, the 5L DraughtKeg — good for 20 eight-ounce glasses of brew — is the first and only keg with a built-in CO2 pressure system, allowing you to have true draught beer in your fridge. It's also got a patented tapping system that keeps the beer fresh for 30 days after tapping. So when your milk is bad, your lunch meat is smelling funny and your eggs are no longer safe, at least you can still have a frosty one.
