We don’t care how incredible the view, astronauts must get bored up in space. Hell, they’re cooped up in tight quarters for days on end; who wouldn’t get bored? Mattel wants to help those space explorers kill some time with the new Scrabble Space Edition. The game is exactly what you think: a version of the popular board game made for zero gravity. Psychologists have long recommend astronauts play games like Scrabble to keep sane while on a mission, but the makeshift Velcro version many used is far from aesthetically pleasing. Mattel stepped in with a metallic board, magnetized tiles, and a heavy dose of style. Mattel will display the boards briefly in London and Paris before sending them off to space stations for actual use. 

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
