Shout Out Louds previewed the single Blue Ice off of their latest album to a select few fans and critics by sending them a kit for making a record out of ice. What a cool idea. (Thanks James P.!)

Nürburgring Snow and Ice

Nürburgring Snow and Ice

Here’s something you don’t see every day: a Formula race car taking on the Nordschleife and Grand Prix tracks when covered in snow. At least they skipped the slicks and went with snow tires.

Quick Spikes for the green, YakTrax for snow and ice. This easy to wear traction device fits on most types of shoes. It’s made of an elastic material with hand-wound rust-resistant coils.

DrinkSavers

DrinkSavers

Throw a lifeline into your favorite beverage with this silicon ice tray which makes ice rings in the shape of tiny life preservers. Probably would look even better using frozen milk instead of water.

Hockey Rink Close Call

An ice hockey team in Slovakia manages to narrowly escape tragedy when the roof on their rink unexpectedly collapses under the weight of the snow outside. Incredible footage, and no injuries.

Polar Ice Tray

Polar Ice Tray

Opaque ice cubes are so passé: check out Jacky TC Wu’s Polar Ice Tray; the water freezes from top to bottom, removing impurities and allowing the ice to remain clear. Bonus: sculpture mold included.
