Spike Your Juice »

The French make such a big deal about Champagne, you'd think it was rocket science. The L.A.-based Spike Your Juice company has come up with a simple, yeast-based powder that can be added to fruit juice, turning it into a sparkling wine within 48 hours. It might not be as strong as the moonshine you've got brewing in your garage (it's only 3.5% to 6% alcohol), but since it's made with pomegranate, cranberry or grape juice, it sure tastes a lot better. The kit also comes with a stopper, six customizable labels and an air lock, which you'll need for the fermenting process.

$9.99 for six packets;  www.spikeyourjuice.com

Brand X, your extended forecast for the 21st century. Creating culture 2.0.
In 2010, the Hollywood studios can be said to have definitively thrown their hats into the 3-D ring, especially when it comes to blockbusters. Wearing 3-D glasses for a couple of hours in a dark movie theater is fine, but what about 3-D TV? Would you happily wear 3-D glasses in your own home? What about the reports of 3-D-induced migraine headaches we're starting to hear about? In the early 1990s, Sega did a lot of research into 3-D virtual reality, but ultimately decided to scrap its plans due to health and safety testing. Potentially getting served with class-action lawsuits from a generation of TV and video game addicts should be enough to give the major electronics giants pause today too … or, at the very least, a very major headache.
