We’re sold on the Amethyst X-1 iPod/iPhone Docking System for looks alone. Just look at it. It looks like the gorgeous love child of a Ferrari and a space plane. But that’s not what makes the Amethyst X-1 really stand out among the sea of iPod docks on the market—it’s the controls. It features IR controls that allow you to turn it on, control the volume, pause and select songs with hand gestures. You could also use the included remote which allows you to access specific songs and playlists, but that’s not nearly as impressive as waving your hands around like an all powerful wizard.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
