Applied Physics: Clever Kitchenware Uses Scientific Methods


Not sure how to pour four even glasses of wine? Let gravity do the work for you via this automatic glass decanter guaranteed to pour in the most even amounts you have ever seen, but with brilliant and visible simplicity.

Acquacalda is the Italian design group behind this series of revealing housewares, each of which uses a physical principle in an obvious yet creative way, like the floating bowl above that weighs your food using water already in your sink.

Other pieces include a self-watering plant, where equilibrium between vessels keeps the soil as moist as needed while letting you observe the diminishing water levels so you know when to refuel, as well as a vase with a handle for easy refilling.
