5 High-Tech Gadgets to Gift (or Keep for Yourself)

Including a levitating cup, innovate wine system & more

It's not just cooking gadgets that we obsess over. There's another group of high-tech machines that belong in your kitchen. They're teaching you everything from how to become a mixologist to a sommelier—all from the comfort of your own home bar. Whether you pick one out as a gift for the plugged-in drink-lover in your life or decide to keep everything for yourself, we have you covered.

Gone are the days when you had to race to finish a bottle of wine before it spoiled. Plum's sleek black box is more than just a wine chiller: A camera recognizes the label, right down to the wine's varietal and origin, storing it at the perfect serving temperature. Once it's time to serve, a needle pierces the cork and dispenses the wine into your glass, all without truly opening the bottle. (It also injects argon gas into the wine to ensure it never oxidizes.)

Ember Coffee Mug

The built-in heater in this ceramic mug keeps your coffee or tea at the ideal sipping temperature while you tackle the Sunday crossword. After you've figured out that inevitably frustrating clue, just use the accompanying app to reheat your now-cooled drink.

No need to do time behind a bar to call yourself a mixologist: Once you tell this smart scale what's in your liquor cabinet, it'll hold your hand through a whole library of cocktail recipes. Park your shaker on the scale and just start pouring; the accompanying app will alert you when to stop. Though, if you do end up "accidentally" over-pouring, the Perfect Drink Pro can readjust the rest of the measurements back to a more appropriate ratio.

Porthole Infuser

If these stunning glass infusers are good enough for Grant Achatz to use in his inventive cocktail bar, The Aviary, then you can bet they're good enough for us, too. Arrange your favorite aromatics inside the see-through chamber before pouring in your favorite spirit, tea or oils for a vessel that doubles as a statement piece.
