WilliamsWarn Is Personal Brewery For Beer Lovers


The WilliamsWarn Personal Brewery is the world’s first all-in-one personal brewery that goes from ingredients to cold, clear, perfectly carbonated and commercial quality beer in just seven days.

With the right ingredients, you can make all 78 official beer styles, and you also have the option of developing your own if you’re feeling adventurous.

It’s not cheap, and will set you back a few Clevelands, but how many people can claim to own their own home brewery?


…It’s Things Thursday: Etymotic Research ety8?

Etymotic Research ety8

Etymotic Research’s ety8 Bluetooth Wireless Earphones are “the world’s first in-ear high fidelity, noise-isolating earphones”.

By using the optional 8•Mate adapter for your iPod, you can send music wirelessly to your earphones, and enjoy the crystal clear sound that Etymotic Research is known for. (They don’t call themselves the “World Leader of In-Ear Technology for nothing!)

The full kit includes a leather case, various eartips, a USB charging cable, and a filter changing tool and filters. Plus, if you’re using these on a device that already has Bluetooth built in, you can skip the iPod adapter and save a few bucks as well.

…AC/DC rocks your Excel spreadsheets?

ACDC Excel

Phil Clandillon and Steve Milbourne have created what they call “the world’s first music video in Excel format” for AC/DC’s Rock N Roll Train.

By creating the entire video in Excel, the two are able to bypass and subvert even the most restrictive of corporate firewalls, allowing you to rock out any time you want.

If you’d like to download the original (Windows only) Excel file, it’s available at the AC/DC Rocks site, or you can view it in YouTube format here:

…Antec’s Skeleton is from the future?

Antec Skeleton

Antec’s Skeleton is a fantastically futuristic looking PC case that claims to be the world’s first open air case.

    With a unique design that allows for unprecedented airflow, a front 92mm fan, and a top three-speed 250mm fan with multicolor LED customization, the Skeleton goes utterly unmatched in stylish cooling. Factor in the layered component trays for top-notch convenience, as well as the rackmount quality side rails, and you have a case truly without equal.

Though it definitely won’t blend in under your desk, this frag factory isn’t designed to, and if you’re the type of person that builds and customizes your machine so that you can get props and respect at the local LAN parties, then this might be just what you were looking for to dominate the competition.

…It’s Movie Monday: Elephants Dream?

Elephants Dream

Elephants Dream is another great short from the Blender Foundation (the guys behind Big Buck Bunny) about two strange characters exploring a capricious and seemingly infinite machine. The elder, Proog, acts as a tour-guide and protector, happily showing off the sights and dangers of the machine to his initially curious but increasingly skeptical protégé Emo. As their journey unfolds we discover signs that the machine is not all Proog thinks it is, and his guiding takes on a more desperate aspect”.

    Elephants Dream is a story about communication and fiction, made purposefully open-ended as the world’s first 3D “Open movie”. The film itself is released under the Creative Commons license, along with the entirety of the production files used to make it (roughly 7 Gigabytes of data). The software used to make the movie is the free/open source animation suite blender along with other open source software, thus allowing the movie to be remade, remixed and re-purposed with only a computer and the data on the DVD or download.
