There’s no reason I need to make charcoal—I don’t normally use it for anything, and if I did, bags of it are so easy to buy. But I find the whole process of exhausting wood sticks into little brittle black pieces so much fun that I’m going to start inventing reasons to use charcoal in my life.
I’m totally getting hypnotized watching this machine spin around and around as it crushes aluminum can after aluminum can. The colors of the soda, the constant spin of the wheel, the methodical movement of the arm, it all makes for such a satisfying video to watch. I think people would absolutely recycle more if they…
Why, hello! We’re so glad to see you made it past the velociraptornadoes, sinkhole maze, and fire ants made of literal fire to join us here in our Survival Week bunker. Please help yourself to a single (one, please!) rationed water bottle as we discuss our now increasingly urgent question: Does tinned food go bad?
When you get a late-night craving for BBQ, the last thing you want to do is ignore it. So when you find yourself standing next to the grill long after the sun has set with a drink in hand, you’ll be glad this tactical koozie with a built-in flashlight is at your side.
Koozies. They keep your hand from getting cold and your beer from getting warm—what could be better? One that keeps your beer cold for much, much longer, that's what.
I'm not going to give my aluminum cans to recycling centers anymore. Instead, I'm going to melt them down to liquid metal and create awesome metal objects with them. All I need is a hair dryer and some charcoal to create this awesome mini metal foundry. It turns about 40 cans into a pound of aluminum.
This is a Public Service Announcement: If you have warm beer (or may be receiving warm beer during the game today), you should read this post we originally ran two years ago.
Money doesn't grow on trees. You can't get something for nothing. There's no such thing as a free lunch. Except all of these cliches are apparently false, because Antoine Deblay, a student who lives in southwest France is actually making money selling cans of air from his town.
Is there anything worse than being at a party and having someone steal your drink? Sure! Taking a long swigg on a can only to realize it isn't yours. But now you can avoid both situations with this keychain-sized stamp that lets you brand an aluminum can with a permanent message, leaving no debate as to its ownership.
Here's a tip you should file away in your folder for zombie apocalypse preparation and in your brain for future conversations for whoa, I didn't know it was that easy: opening a can without a can opener. All it takes is some abrasive concrete rubbing of the can's top and a firm squeeze of the can's body. As long as…
Sennheiser is usually known for high-end audio quality and rather clunky design. That changed, a little, with its Momentum headphones—but now the act is smartened up even further with these colorful cans.
Things change over time. Famous logos morph from black and white text into ornately embossed colorful graphics. Home screens go from a few icons to pages and pages. Phones go from bricks with numbers to slates with touchscreens. It's just what happens. Little tweaks become overhauls. Just look at how your favorite…
Denon is avoiding all the CES madness by revealing a whole bevy of new headphones today for two of its most popular lines. And they're all significantly cheaper than the models announced last year by at least $100.
You might think the KOOZIE-LIKE HOLDER you've got wrapped around your can is doing a great job at keeping your drink cold. But a quarter inch of neoprene can't compare to how well this gigantic novelty foam fist would insulate your cold beer.
Do you adore Miller Lite? Do you find yourself wishing there were somehow a way to get that golden yellow liquid down your throat faster and with fewer suds? Then rejoice! The new ML Punch Top can will allow you to shotgun your brew, the civilized way.
Headphones are wonderful devices meant to enhance your aural experience while also shielding your terrible taste in music from others. Why is this so hard to understand?
There's a reason why Jony Ive has forged so much of Apple's success from aluminum for the last decade or so.
IDEA International, the design shop, teamed up with one of Japan's oldest audio companies, Ashidavox, to create a pair of cans that look like they're from the 1970's. Or 60's. Or 50's. Whatever! They look as timeless as ever.
That's "hella-long," our editor Joe has assured me, and just in case you're willing to test that one out yourself, they can be used as normal stereo headphones should the battery run out of juice.
San Diego-based artist Rich Morrison has taken the old adage "one man's trash is another man's treasure" and applied it to this recycled beer can surfboard.
