Even something as simple as making toast involves a whole lot of complex science that most of us don’t even think about. But when dinner preparation involves a chemistry set full of spices, you’ll be hard pressed to not wonder about all the chemical reactions going down in your dinner.
This $50 fourteen-piece set includes nine test tubes with sealed rubber stoppers, three lab flasks with perforated stoppers for sprinkling out seasoning, and ten-ounce flask with a pouring spout for your favorite oil, and a metal carrying tray to keep everything wrangled. The set also comes with labels for common spices, including a fake elemental symbol for each to further make them look the part. Just don’t invite your chemistry professor over for dinner and you should be fine. [Perpetual Kid via The Red Ferret Journal]

Every time Apple releases a new version of iOS, they include a handful of cool hidden features they don’t usually cover in the press conference. This year’s no different. Here are the 10 best secret features in iOS 8.
10. Rich Text, Videos, and Animated GIFS In Notes
Notes now support rich text and videos, which is great if you want to make more stylized notes. More importantly, Notes now supports animated GIFs. Just copy and paste a GIF or select one from your photo library to insert it as an animated GIF.
9. Scan Credit Card Numbers
If you don’t want to mess around with typing out a credit card number when you order something online, you can now take a picture of of your credit card and iOS 8 will pull up the number. When you’re presented with a credit card field in Safari, you’ll also have the option to snap a picture of your credit card.
8. "Hey Siri"
Apple talked about this in the press conference, but it kind of disappeared with everything else going on. You can now use Siri entirely hands-free when your phone is plugged into a charger, but you have to enable a setting first. Head to Settings > General > Siri and tap the "Allow "Hey Siri" option. Now, when your phone plugged in, you can initiate Siri by just saying "Hey Siri" out loud. It sounds simple enough, but it makes using Siri in a car a million times better.
7. Hide Photos
Don’t want your mom seeing all those party photos? You can now hide them. Tap and hold on a picture and photos and you’ll get an option to hide it. It’ll still be visible in your albums, but won’t been seen in Moments, Collections, or Years.
6. Swipe to Interact with Notifications in Notification Center
You can now swipe to interact with notifications in Notification Center. Just swipe to the left to do it. Each app works a bit differently, but you can usually snooze, reply, or dismiss.
5. Personalized Share Sheets
You can now customize and organize how the Share Sheets work in iOS. Just tap the share icon in any app that supports it (like Safari), scroll over to "More" and customize it from there.
4. Grayscale Mode
If you’re not a fan of color, iOS 8 features a new grayscale mode. To enable it, head into Settings > Accessibility and select "Grayscale." Everything in iOS will lose it’s color and go grayscale.
3. Create an Empty Home Screen
Want a truly minimal home screen? In iOS 8 you can move everything off the first screen if you want. Just hold down on an app and when they start jiggling, drag them away from the first homescreen. You can make it completely blank if you’d like, or just leave a few apps in the menu bar tray at the bottom.
2. Set Up Notifications for Specific Email Threads
Have an important email thread going on but don’t want to enable email alerts for everything? Just swipe left on an email, select the "More" option, and then select "Notify Me…" Now, you’ll get notifications from that email thread.
1. Battery Usage Statistics
Wondering what apps are really draining your iPhone’s battery life? Now you can finally get to the bottom of it. Head into Settings > General > Usage > Battery Usage to view all the apps sucking up your battery.
