Campfire Candle

The scents of a campfire evoke vivid memories for us. The smell of a burning Campfire Candle will, too, though it (unfortunately) won’t be accompanied by the smell of steak or perfectly roasted marshmallows. Still, this 100% soy wax candle smells just like a real life campfire, minus the actual smoke, and is perfect to light before cracking open a few cold beers with good friends. Burns for over 80…

The hefty, oversized borosilicate glass shape is formed using a complex choreography of torches and turning machines — and all completely by eye, no less — before being filled not with sand but with roughly 1.25 million nanoball spheres made of copper-coated stainless…

The Periodic Table of Cocktails

The periodic table of elements organizes chemical elements by several properties. Emma Stokes’ The Periodic Table of Cocktails aims to do the same for cocktails. While organizing drinks isn’t as simple as counting protons and studying electron configurations the book’s table lays them out by one base alcohol per row and groups them close to other cocktails with similar flavor profiles. Meaning if you know you like one particular drink…

Scewo Stair-Climbing Wheelchair

Currently, we adapt our infrastructure to wheelchairs — or try to — by way of ramps or elevators to go up stairs. On the contrary, the Scewo Stair-Climbing Wheelchair doesn’t need much help. Firstly, this high-tech wheelchair typically balances on two wheels to allow for on-a-dime rotations and driving up curbs without much fuss, controlled by a simple joystick interface.

Most consumer drones lug along a small camera. Some professional-grade quadcopters can even carry heavier filming rigs weighing dozens of pounds. Still, Griff Aviation’s Griff Drones are worlds apart from other drones when it comes to rated payload. Three three models include the Griff 125, 300, and 800, the number designating the gross weight that each can carry in kilograms, meaning they can lift about 275, 660, and 1,760…
