As real as that daydream may seem, its path through your brain runs opposite reality.

Aiming to discern discrete neural circuits, researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have tracked electrical activity in the brains of people who alternately imagined scenes or watched videos. "A really important problem in brain research is understanding how different parts of the brain are functionally connected. What areas are interacting? What is the direction of communication?" says Barry Van Veen, a UW-Madison professor of electrical and computer engineering. "We know that the brain does not function as a set of independent areas, but as a network of specialized areas that collaborate."

At $55, it's true that the Beer Foamer is by all practical means a superfluous device that, from what we can tell, is technically a milk frother in a nicer package. But the rituals around the experience of alcohol are largely defined by the superfluous. Do we need to decant table wine in a crystal container when swishing the liquid around in our glass works just as well? Do we need specialized spoons when any old piece of tableware would stir just as effectively?
