Toastabags let you make a grilled cheese in the toaster. And they're reusable.
Done and done.
(If this isn't enough grilled cheese progress for you, a bacon-weave grilled cheese exists. Here's the how to.)
Venezuelan designer Enrique Luis Sardi has created an edible cookie-esque coffee cup for Lavazza that's lined with sugar to keep your coffee in.
In other unnecessary but glorious food achievements, there now exists a hollowed-out muffin that holds chocolate fondue.
Nothing like kissing a creepy hairless egg with moving lips to remind you you're not alone in the world.
The Kissenger, a new messaging device that lets users send kisses wirelessly to one another, consists of a smooth plastic casing whose soft plastic lips are pressure-sensitive.
From New Science:
When you kiss them, the shape changes you create are transmitted in real time over the net to a receiving Kissenger. There, the actuators reproduce the mirror image of the pressure patterns you created -- magically transmitting your smacker to your partner.
The device is a prototype, and its creator, Lovotics, says it won't be brought to market until "all the ethical and technical considerations are covered."
The spokesman made sure to add: "I am not interested in sexual uses for it."
Fears of infidelity are slightly alleviated with this ring from TheCheeky.com, which imprints the all-important phrase "I'm Married" onto the bearer's finger. The odds are slim of such a trick actually preventing cheating, but merely removing the ring before a risque fling won't erase the impression of one's commitment to another. The cost of such peace of mind: $550.
It took two months and a whole team of MIT mechanical engineers and nano-technologists, but at long last, mankind has a solution to the ketchup bottle battle.
LiquiGlide, a "super slippery" coating, is made up of nontoxic materials that allow the condiment to pour out smoothly, the way it was intended. The lubricant can be applied to all sorts of food packaging, but ketchup
had better be likely will be priority number one.
One of the biggest challenges the team faced was making sure the coating was safe to consume, which meant ingredients had to be FDA-approved. "We had a limited amount of materials to pick from," said team member Dave Smith, an MIT Ph.D. candidate. "I can't say what they are, but we've patented the hell out of it."
