The high-end watch game continues to evolve for better and worse. This watch, might be in the latter category. A Polish company called Wealth Solutions has come up with a line of watches named the Spirit Watches. Their plan is to partner with independent Swiss watchmakers with the differentiator being they will have a drop or two of rare alcoholic beverages inside. Huh? Their latest Spirit Watch is made by Louis Moinet and will hold one drop of the world’s oldest whiskey, Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862. They will be available for purchase...

Remember the McDonald’s Shamrock Shake? Well it is coming back and McDonald’s wants to promote it by reinventing the straw for maximum shake drinkability. “It was a puzzling assignment but one with an ambitious goal,” said Seth Newburg, principal engineer and managing partner at NK Labs. “From a physics perspective, it’s actually quite difficult to deliver a proportional amount of both chocolate and mint flavors with each sip. But that’s exactly what we did. It’s a marvel of fluid dynamics. Thanks Fibonacci sequence.” McDonald’s...

I’m sorry. I couldn’t resist. Plus, it’s Monday and it made me laugh. First off – there is no argument that a tightly tucked-in shirt looks better than a loosely tucked/blousy fitting mens shirt. It is tough to keep shirts tucked properly when moving around (squatting down, stretching, etc…).  There, I got the practical bits out of the way. Now imagine that your perfectly tucked-in shirt attracts a mate and you are about to disrobe. Get ready...

Wino Sippers (2 for $22) look like a smoking pipe but are for sipping your wine of choice. Basically a wine glass with a built-in straw to help from staining your teeth I guess. Another solution searching for a problem or the perfect white elephant gift? ...

This strange touch-sensitive musical instrument, dubbed the Otamatone, is right up there with the kazoo. Kinda neat but not gonna get you into your local band. Easier to explain with a good old fashioned video, after the break. ...

Calm down already. This is a joke book full of blank pages, essentially a notebook. Not stating any political viewpoints here. Just thought it was funny. The book is titled Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect & Admiration. You can get yours here for $5.

Not sure what it is that draws me to bikes with fat tires. You know, like the Mongoose Beast, Dolomite, and Hitch style bikes. Yes, I know that they are horribly inefficient and have extra weight and rolling resistance. But they just look so cool. So, why not take it up a notch by using your old car tires and pop them on your bike? Well that is just what Mr-Mash did with his instructable....

I don’t know what is scarier, the fact that this product really exists at Nordstrom or the fact that it has sold out a few times already. The description is a hoot as well with lines like “smooth Los Angeles-area stone”, “sure to draw attention wherever it rests”, and “a work of art”. Really?

Unfortunately it looks as if the selfie is here to stay, so you might as well improve your selfie game. This tiny quadcopter hopes to take a few users away from the infamous selfie stick. The AirSelfie is small enough that it fits inside of a cellphone case. Simply pop it out of the case and have it fly up to 66-feet away where its 5MP camera can take pictures or video. The pictures are stored onboard with 4GB’s of memory.  Flight...

Why not go against the grain once and a while. If you are going golfing you can wear jeans and a Lynyrd Skynyrd t-shirt. If you are drinking wine however you will need a Guzzle Buddy ($15). This wine glass attachment plugs on to the top of the wine bottle turning the entire set-up into a giant glass. Keep it classy San Diego. Perfect for your wine chugging friends or an upcoming white elephant party.
