The Internet is a black hole for strange, weird and wonderful things—especially when it comes to food. Rather than dive in yourself, let FWx do it for you. Here, five of the most absurd food items we saw this week.
Hands-Free Snacking Robot: The most aggravating thing for a serious gamer? Eating. You have to stop playing in order to use one hand to pick up some sort of (let’s hope) nearby food and then put it in your mouth. That’s precious gaming seconds lost. Thankfully, Mattessons, a UK processed-meat manufacturer, and the Syndicate Project have teamed up to source the ultimate hands-free snacking device. The MMM3000 Robotic Arm Prototype MK II is the first step in the right direction. It just needs to work on its anger issues—watch the video, you’ll see what we mean. [Rocket News 24]
Money-Flavored Cocktail: It’s the perfect drink for Scrooge McDuck. The Paper Anniversary, from Remy Savage, of Little Red Door in Paris, is made with gin, saline solution and paper syrup—caster sugar, water, vanilla, fresh-cut grass, gentian root, Suze and Laphroaig—and it tastes just like money. The inventive cocktail and its creator won the 2014 Bombay Sapphire Most Imaginative Bartender competition. [Alcademics]
