I’ll admit to living off of Ichiban cup-o-noodles (or the brick-o-noodles) in college. I have to further admit that it is still my go-to meal at work when I’ve forgotten lunch, am too lazy to go out, or just don’t have any time for anything more.
The Calamente Fork that I first read about over at my fave site BoingBoing is a Japanese product that is made for picking up noodles (ramen or spaghetti) and twirling effectively. The design on this piece of cutlery is elegant and more of a single use tool and conversation piece than anything. But clever none the less.
