Elon Musk has his hands full these days, what with his chaotic takeover of Twitter, so I'm not sure how much involvement he will have had with Tesla's latest, and perhaps, weirdest product. No, it's not an unsteady robot or a dystopian off-road vehicle. We expect that from Tesla. It's a set of glassware.

Alcohol might seem like a strange sideline for a car company, but Tesla surprised us earlier in the year by releasing its own limited-edition tequila. In a bottle shaped like a lightning bolt, obviously. Now it's released the perfect accessory for anyone who snapped up one of those $420 bottles – Tesla sipping glasses. And they're possibly the most impractical, worst designed glasses we've ever seen.
