New Crazy Invention Turns Water Into Wine?

No your eyes are not deceiving you. The billiantly crazy Miracle Machine is a new invention like no other, or so it seems. Winemakers Bob Levy and Martha McClellen have managed to come up with the first winemaking device for the home. Of course, you will need a few things before you are sitting in front of the fire knocking back the equivalent of a 1999 Cote Rotie, but hey, isn't that always the case? Trust me when I say you will want to read on. This bad boy is much more, or perhaps less, than it seems.

Meet The Crazy Sloppy Joe Doughnut Invention

What do you get when you fuse a Californian fried chicken king with a global doughnut chain? The answer is the perplexingly named Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe Burger. Yes this is a mind-bending one, and something which has America's increasingly more health aware population divided. So is it harmless, or another contribution to the country's very real obesity issue? Let us assess.

New AROMAFORK Invention To Transform Eating Experiences

Is taste really enough anymore? Regardless of your answer to this question, it is certainly one which the nostrel-savvy founders of the innovative company Molecule-R would answer with a resounding NO. The AROMAFORK is a new, and slightly crazy food invention and is the result of extensive research into the complex workings of the nasal passageways. With this device customers can experience an abundance of flavored scents even more intriguing than the invention itself.

Wrap Your Ear Around The New Talking Menu

New Super Oat Invention To Improve Heart Health

Science's ever-turning cogs have been at it again, and this time the cogs in question have been turning at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and more specifically within its team of plant breeders, led by John Mochon. Whilst many may look into their respective cereal bowls and see a bunch of simple oats, John and his team see the BetaGene, and the heathier future that their super oat can bring for us all.

Tuck In To The World's Most Expensive Cupcake

Dubai has long been seen as the epitomy of extravagance and overindulgence. Why? Well. Because it's true. And if there was ever anything to cement this city's reputation as a haven for the world's more financially well endowed inhabitants, it is the Goden Phoenix Cupcake, complete with the world's most expensive chocolate - Amedei Porcelana!

Bacteria-Free Vegetables With Fresh4Longer Food Rinse

Vic Cherikoff, an expert in food microbiology as well as other disciplines, has spent a good portion of his life trying to solve food-related problems which we face every day. The latest leg on his problem solving journey finds us face to face with Fresh4Longer natural food rinse - the answer to all vegetable storage nightmares. Surely this requires further examination?

CaffeinAll Delivers Caffeine You Can Sprinkle!

Salt, pepper, and caffeine. What do these three things have in common? They can all be sprinkled on food. Okay the last one is fairly new to the sprinkling world, but don't judge it. That's my job! So let's see whether or not we should welcome CaffeinAll to the insanely long list of instant energy products. I can feel the caffeine-induced enthusiasm already!

X-Out Is Kitchen Fire Extinguisher Like No Other

Representing the third installment in a not-at-all-planned series on Jim Ruck inventions, the X-Out fire extinguisher offers kitchen safety at its most modern and effective. Yep, as good as crazy food-related inventions are, there is obviously nothing better than a device which could directly save lives.

Incredible Site Allows The Blind To Scan Cans

Site is a truly commendable project from inventor Jim Ruck. With the aim of helping blind people to solve a long standing food-related problem, the Site device offers a crucial service, and does so in an extremely practical, modern and effective way. Something tells me this bad boy will go far.
