Planetary-Gears-Corkscrew

Next to your cell phone and wallet, the worst thing you can have floating around in a cab is chunks of cork. In the latter case we are, obviously, talking about wine and not a motor vehicle, but you get the idea. Even successfully extracting the barrier between you and an excellent wine buzz is kind of a pain in the ass. Manual corkscrews require real effort. Everyone and their brother already has a Bunny, so that’s no fun either. You could stop entirely to box or screwcap wine, but picking up one of these planetary gears corkscrews is just the right amount of overkill. Powered by the same sort of planetary gears you find in electric screwdrivers and automatic transmissions, this corkscrew is one of the best practical applications of physics we’ve seen in quite some time. Is it over the top? Of course, but since when is that a bad thing?
