Geekologie I Watch Stuff The Superficial Hedonistica

Largest/Most Complicated Corkscrew In The World

complicated-corkscrew.jpg

This is Rob Higg's "automaton" corkscrew. I'm pretty sure it's the exact same or another iteration of this one he made back in 2009, but I COULD be mistaken. Just kidding -- I could be from the future though because my parents have always been kinda shady about it. Anyway, hit the jump for a video of the thing in action. You just crank the shit out of the handle, and the machine not only uncorks your bottle, but pours it! Thank goodness too, because if it took all that work just to uncork the bottle I'd probably have to stay sober. Oooooor cut the top off with a sword.

Hit the jump for the that is not going to fit in my kitchen.

    C'mon GW. We love your content, but you know how we feel about the white.

    Who are you trying to please with this colour? A new audience? Readers of thesuperficial? Or worst of all... a woman?
     
    Now I'm gonna have to remove geekologie from my bookmarks bar and make room for some other blog. I'll check back in a couple months. If it's back in black, then you'll be re-bookmarked.

    P.S.
    If you want white so bad, then offer the site in two colours. Casual white and classic black.

    Dammit!! The new LAYOUT is fine. But the white... It burns!! How can you enjoy Dino-lovin' when your eyes are empty smoking craters?

  • Richard Anderson

    Remember. We hate this white. We like the black. I knew you had something up your sleeve when you said "We have taken it down and will revise it for later." I thought you had a few weeks after. No we are back to white. We dont like white.

    calm down he probably reverted by accident somehow, he knows we all hate it. and if it were intentional/permanent he'd have written about it.

  • what the hell's whit the white god damnit?!?!?

  • Cakeflourz

    GW, GW, GW...We've already been over this. You and I both know we agreed to a nice, uniform, non-eye-blinding, dark color scheme.

  • Guest

    That is a fantastic machine, that must be great at events. Ah such classic machines are just so fun.

    hrm...speaking of classics. I do prefer the good o' fashion darkness of the content background. The white contrast doesn't seem fitting and there seems to be an angry mob with fire sticks and pitchforks here.

  • Jarno Christian Salo

    Oh come on, not the white again. You know we hate it.

  • Mom! I just woke up! turn off this thing!

  • n_a_a_s

    Ahhh where am I!?!

  • Paul G Rigby

    Why would you go with a design choice that you know full well your regular visitors hate? 

  • Darren

    Wow again.

  • InkyBloc

    Whose bright idea was it to bring back the horrible layout that everybody had a problem with?

  • WTF???  No one cares about the damn corkscrew.  First you fail to mention the passing of Ralph McQuarrie, and now you bring this piece of shit site back.  What is your damn problem???

  • Steve Maldonado

    I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE'RE YELLING ABOUT!

  • Ickolith

    LOUD NOISES!

  • Nalyr
