That Mexican wrestling-inspired tequila
Mucha Liga’s tequila bottles are something to behold. Their three tequilas (Blanco, Reposado and Anejo) each come in a colourful, head-shaped bottle, drawing influence from the famous Luca Libre masks worn by luchador wrestlers. Originally produced by the Juanacatlan distillery in the La Ciénega region of Jalisca, Mexico, it is created using 100% Blue Weber Agave grown 1,530 meters above sea level (apparently the additional sunlight makes it sweeter). And, you can now get Mucha Liga in the UK starting at £42.95 on Amazon.

That Face/Off Remake
This ‘bendable’ Nintendo Joy-Con design
We may one day is a Nintendo Switch with ‘bendable’ Joy-Cons if Nintendo’s latest patent is anything to go by. The console maker has applied for a US patent on Joy-Cons with hinges that would allow the top half ‘bend’. Users would be able to bend the top third of the Joy-Con whether or not they were attached. Despite having only recently filed the US patent, it seems the design has been in the works for a while as the original international patent was filed in February 2018.
