Take your wine's temperature, wirelessly

Point and press button

Brookstone

You may be quite pleased with yourself, having mastered your new WinePod. And you conveniently forgot to peel off the $3,500 price tag, thereby impressing everyone with your commitment to your latest hobby/indulgence/waste of time.

But once you begin the anticipated decanting ritual, how will you be certain that your liquid gold has reached the optimum temperature? This laser wine thermometer lets you test it from afar, without opening the bottle. "Simply point the thermometer at your bottle of wine, and with the press of a button, the thermometer registers the wine's internal temperature," the product literature says.

Let's take a poll: Would you trust this $30 gadget to open your 1787 vintage Sauternes?
