Play a Tune With Your Wine Glass

If drinking wine and listening to music are two of your favorite pastimes, these new wine glasses might strike a chord. For $65 per pair, these glasses from UnCommon Goods play a note depending on the amount in your glass.

Made from lead-free crystal, the etched glass is labeled with musical notes that match the amount of liquid in the glass.

"When the user drinks to D for example, he or she may run a finger along the rim of the glass to create its lush, sonorous note. Or, for the more percussive party-er, the same note will ring out with a gentle rap of his or her utensil on the side of the glass," the website says.

Reviews for the glasses have been mixed. One online reviewer said, "My friends and I have tried numerous times and we cannot get them to hum."

Another reviewer warns, "You can barely hear the 'music' these glasses produce, not worth the price."

Other reviewers seem to love the glasses and recommend them as great gifts to give musical, wine-loving friends.
