Castro Tweets, X-Ray Scotch, and Other Stories We Didn't Post

So much news passes before our collective eyes every day that we couldn't possibly cover it all. Mostly because much of it isn't worth covering! But here are a some borderline tidbits we passed on, just in case.

Swivl Dock Twists, Doesn't Shout

It's a Swivl Dock! A dock that swivels! We already covered back when it was just an itty bitty Kickstart project, but now it's all grownsed up and available for purchase. Swivel! [Swivl]

The iPad-Controlled Terrarium

Are terrariums things that people actually own? Like more than three or four people? Maybe the odd Biodome enthusiast? Anyway, this one is controlled with an ipad, except not really because it's just some concepty designy type thing that you can't and won't ever be able to actually buy. Which is fine, because again: who owns a terrarium? [MocoLoco]

X-Ray Labels for Your Sipping Whiskey

We love drinking. We love design. We love X-rays. In fact, there's not much we don't love about these labels for The Macallan, although they seemed a little too far afield to deserve their own post. At least until we're able to conduct some extensive hands-on research. [Cool Hunting]

You Can Follow Castro's Niece on Twitter

But why would you? Seriously, why? If you don't speak Spanish, it's gibberish, and if you do speak Spanish, well, why do you care what Castro's niece has to say I guess? Doesn't Putin have some third cousin somewhere that might be more interesting? [The Next Web]


Left Behind is our daily collection of chaff we didn't think was quite good enough to post on its own, and why.
