Ice Straws - Chill your beverage while drinking it!
Wednesday, June 30, 2010 1:01 PM

This is perhaps the most creative use of ice I have ever seen. Why not have a straw made of ice? Sure it's going to melt eventually, but if you are making a cocktail or some other fancy beverage these ice straws from thinkgeek are just the thing to spice it up. The ice try is made out of silicone and makes six 8 inch straws.

Don't forget that you can use whatever liquid you want to make your straws. So you could use plain water or something more exciting like lemonade or a fruit juice. Also alcohol doesn't freeze well, so you might want to stick to pretty much any other liquid. Next time you make a cocktail or fancy fruit drink or smoothie try garnishing it with a flavored ice straw.
 
You can get your very own ice straw tray for only $7.99.

LCD Peephole Viewer - Your door wants an LCD too!
Wednesday, June 9, 2010 1:50 PM


If you have a peephole installed on your door and you are a bit of a geek like me then this next Geek Gadget is for you. It's a LCD security viewer, it replaces the existing peep hole in doors 1-3/8" to 2-1/4" thick. When someone knocks on the door all you have to do is hit the little button and you are presented with a 2.5” view of the person standing there. Oh sure the standard peephole worked just fine, but why not install a mini LCD on your front door? Am I right? Come on it's common sense!
