Hackrod, a digital manufacturing company, imagines a future where prospective car buyers can design their own cars by leveraging VR and 3D printing. That may be a ways off, but the company does have an example of such a car. The La Bandita Speedster is the collaborative effort of Hackrod and Siemens. It’s meant to showcase the power of virtual reality, AI engineering, and 3D printing, along with how the future will allow us to create cars (and other products) like we’re playing video games. The La Bandita Speedster is printed in 5556 aluminum alloy and boasts an ergonomic cockpit that was produced in VR. While this is a proof of concept, Hackrod is allowing customers to pre-order a La Bandita through their site, if you want to be the first to taste what the future holds.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
