When you pop open a bottle of wine, it’s easy to forget that its stopper comes from a tree.

Next time you need to open a bottle of wine, skip the ordinary corkscrew, and reach for this bottle opening weapon. This oversized gun fits around the neck of wine bottles, and removes corks in seconds when you squeeze the trigger. Sadly, it doesn’t fire the cork out of its barrel.
