Wine vault: No screw caps allowed

The ultimate oenophile gadget

General Electric

We're not terribly big on wine, preferring single-malt scotch for our imbibing pleasures, but we couldn't resist beating Caroline McCarthy to the punch on her favorite subject. (Well, one of her favorites, anyway.)

GE's "Monogram Walk-in Wine Vault" is the ultimate oenophile gadget, combining the convenience of a home cellar with security for a vintage collection, according to Gearfuse. From a tech standpoint, one of the most impressive features is its digital inventory system, which the vault's Web site describes this way: "In just seconds, you can locate wines and determine whether bottles are ready for consumption. You can also store prices, tasting notes and other details that can enhance the wine-collecting experience." (No pricing is listed, shockingly.)

But the real test will be how many varieties of Ripple are catalogued.
