Award-Winning Mixologist Launches Cocktail Glass for Space
Online PR News – 20-March-2015 – San Francisco, CA – What happens when you combine an an award-winning mixologist, Hollywood prop fabricator and movie magic maker, and a space tourism designer with an award winning robotics engineer? Creative genius at it’s best.
Russell Davis, a celebrity bartender and mixologist, rated #1 Bartender in the U.S. in 2012, named "Nightclub & Bar Magazine's" Bartender of the Year in 2012, and stars in SpikeTV's "Bar Rescue" TV series. “We are reaching for the stars by trying to bring the creature comforts of mankind to a frontier where they have never existed. We hope others will continue to show their support for our efforts and join us to share the vision of a future which is now our reality," says Davis.
In an attempt to bridge the gap between the space tourism vision and mainstream reality, the team at Cosmic Lifestyle Corporation created a fun, usable object to show that space tourism is not an abstract concept, but a stepping stone for improving the way people live, work, and play beyond planet Earth. This project is supported by the Space Tourism Society and Space Frontier Foundation, which is offering a free membership to those who donate $25 or more to the Kickstarter campaign.
“My colleagues in the Cosmic Lifestyle Corporation are some of the most passionate and innovative people that I have ever had the chance to meet, much less work alongside and be lucky enough to call my friends,” says Davis. Davis’ team includes Samuel Coniglio, the co-founder of Cosmic Lifestyle Corporation, is a futurist, an artist & experience designer and space tourism expert. Brent Heyning, also a co-founder, is a former "Mr. Wizard" Hollywood prop & set designer and fabricator, who now serves as the Principal and Chief Designer of Toyshoppe Systems; Nick Donaldson, a toy designer and robotics engineer, has been designing and building robots for 15 years, from advanced research robots to successful toys and medal winning competition robots.
