cocktail topNeed to impress someone with your cocktail-crafting skills? Well, put on a real show by making an Ice Ball Cocktail, courtesy of YouTubers Cocktail Chemistry. In their latest video, they show us how to create a hollow ball of ice and fill it with booze without making a big, watery mess.

Keep in mind that you’ll need a soldering iron and a syringe to get the job done. So, yeah…heads up.

3d-printed-armor3D printing master Melissa Ng of Lumecluster recently contacted the goddess known as Felicia Day with an idea for a project that would involve creating “a full regalia of armor” for Day to model.

With the help of Shapeways, this is the result. Ahem…holy crap.

upside-down-wine-glassThe next time you have a dinner party or a wine tasting, bring out this upside down wine glass. Sipping from the stem while the wine stays in the bowl of the glass should confuse and amuse them.

Matchless-Star-Wars-2-02022016Geeky clothing has exploded in the last decade or so, as evidenced by the Doctor Who inspired shirt I’m wearing as I type this. Some of this stuff, like my shirt, is distinctly as the lower-end of casual wear – your Target Jurassic Park shirts and dresses from Hot Topic. Some stuff, however, is distinctly high-end fashion, and has the high-end price tag to boot.

Adding to the growing list of high-end items is this range of Star Wars-inspired jackets from Matchless London. The range is a delightful mix of jackets based on items worn in the movies themselves, meaning you can buy Han Solo’s vest, an awesome jacket inspired by Darth Vader’s ensemble, Leia’s Hoth coat, and the kind of leather coat Obi-Wan Kenobi would’ve worn if he’d been a badass cowboy instead of a Jedi Knight.
