One of the most fantastical ideas to spring from the minds of humans has become a common trope — time travel. As a genre, time travel dates back around 100 to 150 years ago, with books like The Time Machine, A Connecticut Yankee in King Authur's Court, and even A Christmas Carol.

With the ability to identify, chill, pour, and preserve, the Plum wine preserver combines all wine gadgets into one sleek package. Select your bottle and insert it into the appliance. Inside, a camera scans the label to identify the wine and automatically begin cooling to the ideal temperature. Whether it's a cork or metal screw cap, a double-cored needle punctures the top. As wine is released, argon gas fills the bottle to help prevent oxidation. A single canister can preserve up to 150 bottles, keeping each one fresh for up to 90 days so when you're ready, a perfect glass of wine is always waiting to be poured — a valuable feature during the holidays.

The leading cause of death is being alive. Our bodies are full of zombies — senescent cells that refuse to die when they should. As these cells accumulate, they wreak havoc on healthy cells around them — and making us age in the process. Kurzgesagt looks at how scientists are looking at reversing aging as a means to keep us healthier for longer.
