We're still waiting on the time machine, human teleportation, and commercially available flying cars. But scientists have been working hard, and now the Remote-Controlled Floating Serving Tray is ready for the world.

Hammacher Schlemmer's remote-controlled tray holds up to five cans (no room for a six-pack?) and a 16-ounce bowl of delicious, delicious snacks.

The piece de resistance--a remote control with 25 feet of range--lets the operator transport various refreshments to you aquatically. (Or, depending on how good a friend the operator is, float the snacks just out of reach and make you swim around and chase them.)

At $50, the Remote-Controlled Floating Serving Tray is a medium-risk buy with potential for high returns. At the very least, fellow Craver Caroline McCarthy can live her dream of consuming a spaghetti dinner and five mai tais in the middle of a pool without ever leaving the water. Kudos, Caroline.
