Bulleit bourbon–or frontier whiskey, as they like to call it–is the booze equivalent of your first friend from grade school. You might not have seen each other in over a decade and moved on to bigger and better things, but all it takes is a few short minutes (sips in this case) to fall right back into the old rhythm. For the past few years, Bulleit has been partnering with creatives, artists and boundary pushers from the modern frontier as part of the Bulleit Frontier Works program. After tackling tattoo artists and neon artists, Bulleit turned to the world of tech for an entire 3D Printed Frontier. The most important aspect of all of this is the bourbon itself, which is used in 3D printed cocktails that were created as a collaboration between mixologist Elmer Mejicanos and Print A Drink inventor Benjamin Greimel. Essentially, rather than building structures from the ground up like a traditional print, these drinks are made with a robot that injects microdot oil suspensions into a liquid. It wouldn’t really be the 3D Printed Frontier if it stopped their, so they also tapped architecture firm FAR and fabrication team Machine Histories to custom 3D print an entire bar with 3,000 interlocking pieces. If you missed out on the Oakland stop, the Bulleit 3D Printed Frontier experience will be traveling all over the US before it concludes when it arrives back home at the distillery in Kentucky.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
