The Vertigo is a handy device that will self-heat your food and beverages and is eco-friendly at the same time. Designed by Nicolas Bernal, the outer shell is made from Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT), a material that can handle temperatures up to 150° C and is fire retardant. A sensor-triggered LED lets you know optimal temperature. Best of all, you hand crank it, so the prototype will work when you are lost in the woods, stuck in traffic, or need a caffeine fix.

Similar to the Automatic Martini Shaker we recently wrote about the Cyclone Cocktail Shaker promises to provide some flashy automation for the mixing of your favorite drink. The Cyclone Cocktail Shaker creates a maelstrom of ingredients as it blends your drink of choice in it’s clear mixing container. Mixing up to 16-ounces at a time this acrylic and stainless steel device combines form and function into a single sleek package. At the $15 price point the motor can’t possibly be up for properly blending with ice so liquors and mixers should be pre-chilled, but that aside this looks to be a great conversation piece for any geeks wet bar.
This would be a nice gift to give your buds who boast that they can drink you under the table. The Shot Caller is a timer that will set off a loud buzzer every 60 or 100 minutes. When it goes off, chug a shot of tequilla or down a brew. It also features red, yellow, and green LEDs if you are too dizzy to see the numbers. For those who drink before it issues the signal, this is a good indication that it is not the gift for her/him. With free shipping, the Shot Caller’s creators claim the reason to buy it at $14.99 is because it is less than the cost of one case of beer.
