Planetary Gears Corkscrew

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?

We’re not sure when the whole carry your wallet in your back pocket thing started, but we’re not big fans. Not only does it make it easier for pickpockets to swipe your cards and cash, but sitting on a wallet all day isn’t exactly what we’d call “comfortable.” That’s why we endorse the front-pocket wallet, and few versions are smarter and sleeker than the Wally Bifold. The Wally Bifold is a wallet distilled to the essentials. By eliminating unnecessary bulk, Distil Union crafted the Wally Bifold to hold as much as your standard bifold—up to 12 cards and 30 bills—but in a package that slips easily into the front pocket of your jeans.
