Like the Biersafe, but way slicker, Timo Hänsel’s in-ground Bierkühler Deluxe is fully motorized, and packed with LEDs so drinks make a dramatic entrance as they rise up from the ground, where they remain cool and out of the sun. It looks like it was a pain to set up though.
There are tons of flashlights which simply light your way, but if you want objects you’re illuminating to show in their true color (which can be critical for wiring and other tasks), you need one with a good Color Rendering Index (CRI). Everyday Carry shares their top picks.

The A.V. Club visited the factory of legendary pinball maker Stern Pinball. The video shows a few of the more than 3,500 parts that make up a pinball machine, before walking us through the assembly process. They’ve moved to a bigger factory since we visited.
