Tasty Turns Viral Recipes Into On Demand Cookbooks

Tasty Cookbook

Here’s an interesting gift idea: Tasty, the viral cooking video section of Buzzfeed, is making a cookbook.

Well, actually they’re creating 100,000 different cookbooks.

By using over 1,000 top-rated recipes and grouping them into categorical chapters which you can then mix and match, and then printing the whole thing on demand, they’ve created an almost endlessly customizable cookbook that can be matched to the recipient’s exact cooking preferences.

You start by browsing through categories like Health Nut, Ingredient Obsessed, or Carb Lovers, and then adding sub-categories like One Pot Wonders, Best Desserts Ever, and Hangover. You can then personalize it with up to 300 characters of text (and as many emoji as you can fit) and the result is a customized  gift for the food lover in your life.

Joey Roth and Grovemade Team Up For Wood Speakers

Joey Roth Wood Speakers for Grovemade

Joey Roth has once again created a lustworthy set of speakers that would look amazing at home, on your desk at work, or even on display in a modern art museum.

(I’m a big fan of Joey Roth, and have featured his Ceramic Speakers and Sorapot Teapot on the site before.)

Made of either walnut or maple, the speakers are machined out of solid wood for wood’s superior acoustic properties that create clear and nuanced sound, and then mounted on stainless steel stands. A mathematically ideal horn is integrated directly into the enclosure, boosting the speaker’s low frequency response without the group delay and phase distortion inherent to more common bass reflex enclosures.

Each set of speakers is crafted one at a time in the Grovemade workshop in Portland, Oregon, and requires hours of CNC machining and skilled hand forming to complete.

You won’t find a better looking set of speakers, and with prices that start at just $499, it’s a reachable splurge for the person that wants their speakers to look as good as they sound.

Helberg: A Bionic Hand Made From One Keurig Coffee Maker

If you have a Keurig K350 coffee maker, 200 hours of free time, and a LOT of creative skills, you can turn the disassembled parts of that coffee maker into a functioning bionic hand:

According to Evan Booth, the creator of “Helberg”, the build details are as follows:

  • One single Keurig used (K350/300 2.0 Brewer)
  • The only non-Keurig materials are adhesives and the 12v external power supply
  • Used basic tools—rotary, heat gun, common hand tools, etc.
  • No plans… just a general idea of how things should be constructed
  • Build time: 199 hours, 56 minutes, and 36 seconds (read: hands on things)

Ico Bottle Opener

Ico Bottle Opener

Having a unique bottle opener can elevate any drinking opportunity to the next level, and this Ico Bottle Opener from Fort Standard out of Brooklyn is guaranteed to stand out.

Made from 3D printed matte black steel, this complex design showcases the full potential of 3D printed steel, as the design would not be possible to produce as a traditional casting.

Each of the 100 limited edition pieces is produced on demand, and comes with a unique serial number and certificate of authenticity.
