These ice cubes? They’re rechargeable

Everything is electronic, and everything is rechargeable these days. So, er, why not ice cubes? Dave and Calvin Laituri from Wayland, Massachusetts, developed these stainless steel pieces that act just like ice cubes, and ensures your drink cools down to the temperature you want without any risk of it getting watered down. They’ve called it Pucs. What a name. It’s now being funded like crazy by thirsty folks to the tune of close to $60,000 — almost 24 times that of the $2,500 amount the Laituris asked for.
