This Machine (Sort of) Turns Water Into Wine

The ultimate goal of any alchemist worth her salt is to turn ordinary metal into precious gold. Besides that, however, the second greatest goal is to turn not-so-precious water into wine. Science doesn't quite allow for that, but here is a machine that gets pretty darned close.

It's appropriately named The Miracle Machine. Consider it like a Sodastream for wine. All you do is fill it up with water, yeast, grape concentrate and finishing powder packets, and let the machine do the rest. In three days flat you'll be sucking down so much wine you are liable to turn somewhat purple. Speaking of purple, The Miracle Machine makes six varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Chardonnay, Oregon Pinot Noir, a Tuscan blend, Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc and some kind of bizarre red and white hybrid.

The makers of the miraculous contraption are about to start a Kickstarter to raise the funds needed to make sure we end the tyranny of having to go down the street to the wine store when we want a glass. Thanks, guys!
