Cool Ice

Maybe you have too many bottles of liquor taking up space in your freezer. Or perhaps you're in need of some ice, a bucket and a bottle chiller. Fusion Brand's stylish ice orb combines all three in a compact mod pod. Like something you'd find in James Bond's freezer, the vertical ice tray makes 21 egg-shaped cubes and stores another 50 inside. And when it's not holding ice, the orb is perfectly shaped for properly icing a bottle of Champagne.

 

$16, at A+R Store.

 
Why Does Ice Float?

Nearly everything decreases in volume as it gets colder, except for water. After it freezes, water's volume increases, making it ligher than the liquid it's in—be it the water in a lake or Diet Coke in a glass.
