Sci-Fi Steel Ice Cubes

ThinkGeek Designs Drink Coolers Inspired by Star Trek's Borg Race

— October 16, 2014 — Lifestyle
Those who are looking for a gift that is both fun and mature for their 'Star Trek' enthusiast friend will love these steel ice cubes. Inspired by the Borg race, they cool whisky drinks, and other beverages for that matter, in a strangely sophisticated and geeky way. This is only strange because the two concepts do not often go hand in hand.

Designed by ThinkGeek, the steel ice cubes would make a great present for the holiday season for loved ones or even co-workers. Each steel ice cube is etched with the BOrg insignia. Instead of using real ice cubes, these steel versions help keep alcoholic beverages cool without watering them down. Thus, it is also made for whisky enthusiasts as well.
Trend Themes
1. Steel Ice Cubes - The trend of using steel ice cubes instead of traditional ice cubes in beverages presents an opportunity for innovative drink cooling solutions.
2. Geeky Drink Accessories - The trend of geek-inspired drink accessories offers opportunities for unique and fun gift ideas for enthusiasts of popular culture.
3. Non-diluting Beverage Cooling - The trend of non-diluting beverage cooling methods provides an opportunity to create innovative products that keep drinks cold without compromising taste.
Industry Implications
1. Kitchenware - The kitchenware industry can explore new product lines to cater to the trend of steel ice cubes and other innovative drink cooling solutions.
2. Gifts and Gadgets - The gifts and gadgets industry can capitalize on the trend of geeky drink accessories by offering unique and creative products for enthusiasts.
3. Beverage Industry - The beverage industry can innovate and introduce new cooling technologies to meet the demand for non-diluting beverage cooling methods.
