275x250.jpg Space may be the final frontier -- but why shouldn't you be able to enjoy a beer while exploring it? Well, thanks to an intrepid team of Australian brewers, you might.

An Ozzie microbrewery has teamed up with space engineers from a astronautics firm to develop a special brew with would be ideal supped in space.

Jaron Mitchell of 4 Pines Brewing Company says that with the expected growth of space tourism, there's going to be a burgeoning market for space booze.

That's why he's teamed up with Jason Held of Saber Astronautics to create the beer which will be specifically designed to be enjoyed in zero gravity.



We've seen some fairly odd products, but brain wave controlled emotion indicating fluffy cat ears for humans, have got to by up there as some of the most bizarre.

Japanese firm Neurowear say their odd 'Necomimi' ears are a great way to exhibit your innermost feelings and could become a vital communication tool.

Using a sensor which is worn on the forehead, the ears - due to gon on sale later this year - are said to respond to the wearer’s emotions and change their shape.

If the user is sad, the ears will apparently flop down, if they're amused the ears will wiggle but if the wearer is tired the ears go flat… we don't know what they do if you are confused by seeing people with ears.

275x250.jpg Popsicles are normally a effective and cheap way to cool off -- but not at a hotel resort in Mexico, they've launched a lavish $1,000 tequila ice lolly.

The expensive icy treat may come served on a classic plastic stick, but it's made from premium tequila which sells for £1,000 per bottle rather than fruit squash.

But should the Tequilas Premium Clase Azul Ultra not be enough of a draw, there is also the little matter of the 24 ct. gold flakes the Tequila Pop contains.

Bosses at the Marquis Los Cabos resort in Baja California Sur say they expect the premium popsicle to prove popular, but that those on a budget may prefer a straight shot of the Clase Azul Ultra… a snip at $500 a shot.

275x250.jpg Women who are thinking about going under the knife can now get an instant boob job for free thanks to a new iPhone app.

The app is the brainchild of US plastic surgeon Elizabeth A. Kinsley, from New Orleans, who was the first doctor to employ 3D imaging technology to show women what they will look like after surgery.

Called iAugment, the app allows iPhone users to take a picture of themselves and virtually boost their cup size.

While it's intended for people considering plastic surgery themselves, we can imagine one or two blokes will be testing to see what their other half might look like with bigger breasts.

275x250.jpg A designer has created what he claims is a perfectly sensible solution to the problem of trying to control a touchscreen phone without a free hand… a stylus for your nose.

Dominic Wilcox says he often found himself wanting to use his touchscreen phone while in the bath, but because his fingers were all too often wet, he couldn't.

But when he realised he could navigate by pressing the phone against his nose, he decided creating a finger-nose stylus would be the logical next step.

After various trial and error he invented this odd-looking device which he says is the ideal way to send a tweet from the bath… should you do something so impressive in the bath you need to tell the world.

275x250.jpgCreators of an odd breast milk ice cream which banned by a council and threatened with legal action from Lady Gaga, say it will be back on sale soon.

Last year, the Icecreamists parlour introduced 'Baby Gaga' a £14 ice cream made from human breast milk which was served with a rusk and shot of Calpol.

But shortly after the launch, Westminster Council banned the ice cream and over health concerns and Lady Gaga threatened them with legal action over the name.

However, the wacky product will this week once again go on sale again in London’s Covent Garden at a new political ice cream installation. Apparently that's a thing.

It's hoped that a name change to 'Baby Goo Goo' (see what they did there?) will help the breast milk ice cream stay out of legal trouble this time around.
