If you're trying to cut out soda, what healthy drinking alternatives do you really have? Well, if you get one of these cool pitchers, you can have naturally fruit infused water right at your fingertips. How does it work?

Elias spends hours painstakingly cutting out tiny shapes to make detailed…

However, if you're one of those people who long for simpler days, you know, when we had four channels to choose from rather than four billion (yes, I am exaggerating), than you'll be smitten by this new retro TV by LG.
