You'd think a species of creatures whose primary focus is gladiatorial combat would be uniformly pleased about assuming a new, more capable form — even if that form involves an additional head or a piece of silverware.
You use them every day. They're some of the most simple, but useful, devices in existence. They're used the world over. But who, exactly, invented knives, forks and spoons?
This spork isn't really a spork: it's a spoon that turns into a knife and fork. It's cleverly designed to see the user through soup then a regular main course—we just can't really work out what it should be called.
You're in a Japanese restaurant. Or a Chinese restaurant. Or a Korean restaurant. Or to avoid being racist, any restaurant that uses chopsticks as its main conduit for food. It smells so good! But you're sweating, your hands are shaking, you're starving because you can only get one rice morsel at a time with those…
If you went back in time with all the knowledge you have now but none of the habits, what utensil would you invent to eat with? Is the fork, a tiny and instinctive spear, the ideal utensil? Or is the chopstick, a dexterous extension of your fingers, the winner? Which makes the most sense?
When skis when concave, that was a big deal. Aggressive skiers were soon carving deep lines into the hardpack and beginners were getting up and at 'em faster than ever. DPS wants to do that again with their funky Spoon.
The Tostitos Scoop was a momentous moment in the history of dipping. But it has one glaring flaw: your thumb takes up half the scoop. Spoonachos, however, have a handle. Brilliant. My salsa to chip ratio just got WAY better.
Fake Steve on the iPhone 4 and reception:
After years of waiting, we've finally got word that District 9 star Sharlto Copley has completed his first feature-length film as director. Called Spoon, it's a supernatural thriller with Rutger Hauer, and Copley has released a new teaser to celebrate.
Whether you call it a "spork" or a "foon," we must all ask ourselves where we would be without the genius that brought fork and spoon together as one.
The USB Cereal Spoon will never get soggy in milk, because it's completely covered with several layers of glue. Yum!
Finally, a Star Trek-themed utensil that will allow me to eat both ice cream and pasta at the same time. Thank you ThinkGeek for bringing this wonderful product into the world.
This spoon, which looks like a prop from CSI, has built-in scales so you can scoop and check the amount all in one. Made of ABS plastic and stainless steel, it has an LCD screen, and an accuracy of 0.005 ounces. It also measures in metric or imperial and can keep track of added weights. Just make sure you use it for…
Man, I love the guys at Worldwide Fred—but parents and janitors probably feel differently thanks to this ZING! spring-loaded spoon launcher. The way I see it, if you are going to go into battle, you had better have the right equipment. Loading up a round of vegetables in this thing will surely give you an edge over…
The germaphobe in us always freaks out a little bit when we see silverware lying on a bare table, either at someone else's house or a restaurant. (Our own table is a chemical-cleaner-scorched wasteland.) So we hope that eventually all silverware will be like Jens-Martin Skibsted's designs for Side-On Cutlery, which…
Austin band Spoon have collaborated before with yellow robot Keepon, but their new video, for "Don't You Evah" gives us a little more than the first one. Keepon's creator, Hideki Kozima, costars alongside the little blob of sunshine, and there's a whole load of robot cameos toward the end.
