I always love this time of year. The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas gives us a look at inventions on the horizon, and some already on store shelves. This year, one item caught my eye, and made me a little sad too. I can’t tell you how many times over the years, I’ve found myself driving home on a Friday and wishing I had a special bottle of wine chilled and ready. By the time I get home, pop it in the freezer and wait for it, a good hour or more has passed. Heaven forbid you do what I did one night, and got busy and forgot about the wine. Yes, I had a nice little mess to clean up the next day.
This years Consumer Electronics Show, has just what I’ve been wishing for. The Juno beverage chiller. The Juno chill a bottle of wine in as little as 5 minutes and a can of beer in 2 minutes. I am also assuming it can chill a soft drink, or bottle of tea in the same amount of time. Juno! Where have you been all my life? And Why didn’t I think of this? The Handy Juno appliance comes with quite the price tag for now though. At $300 a pop, my life may have to remain incomplete for a while longer.
