In the pursuit of a great idea, inventors can sometimes lose sight of the big picture. I don't doubt that the Calamente Noodle fork is fantastic at spinning up a nice, big fork full of pasta, but I also don't doubt that before the end of a meal with this medieval war museum display piece I would have at least three gruesome lip piercings that I hadn't really planned for. I'll stick with a fork and spoon for now. Or my hands. Or, honestly, anything but this. [Trends in Japan via BBG]
hmm, when i first saw the picture, i figured it was for eating crab. the bottle-opener-ish section would allow you to splay open a crab leg, revealing the meat, which you could then pick up with the fork section. this could be the next big thing for joe's crabshack, and might even get people to come back for a second dinner.
