Ahem… this gadget can be your personal brewery

Nothing like brewing your own beer and swigging it all up. The only problem is brewing takes time, patience and lots of complicated steps that you can’t afford to get wrong.

The machine carbonates the beer, keeps it at the correct temperature, sediments, purifies and pressurizes it so you get chilled bear when you tug at the built-in tap. Obviously, such luxury comes at a price, which will be $4500 for this one.

You don’t stand up on this self balancing vehicle, you sit down and while that may soothe your legs, you’ll still look weird. The rider can control the speed of the vehicle by leaning forward or backwards, and turns can be negotiated by moving sideways. Designed by Erik Lanuza.

Photographing bureaucrats around the world

Behind all those colors, cultures, races and regions, there is one man who just refuses to change. No matter what part of the world you are in, you will run into this person. Even if it is a different race, color or region, bureaucrats are all the same, perhaps a result of their close proximity to politicians. Dutch photographer Jan Banning traveled the world, going through numerous countries, and photographing bureaucrats their. The photographer visited eight countries; Bolivia, China, France, India, Liberia, Russia, the United States, and Yemen.
