Another of these 'ages wines quickly' machines. The opening of this Times article says it all - "a zany-looking contraption, a couple of metres of latex tubing and a few hundred volts of electricity". We are talking aging wine here guys, before your imaginations wander off too far. Whatever they claim it is not going to transform a bottle of plonk into a fine old wine.

TimesOnLine.co.uk
"Squirrelled away in his chemical engineering laboratory in rural Shizuoka, Hiroshi Tanaka has spent 15 years developing an electrolysis device that simulates, he claims, the effect of ageing in wines. In 15 seconds it can transform the cheapest, youngest plonks into fine old draughts as fruit flavours are enhanced and rough edges are mellowed, he says."
