When there isn’t a readily available alternative out there, it becomes really easy to just accept certain things in life. Traffic on your way to and from work, constantly untangling your earbuds, and maybe most famously – trying to scoop ice-cream. For the latter, however, we actually do have a solution. The name? The Midnight Scoop.
In what is the first serious update to the ice cream scoop in over 100 years, this newcomer promises easy and pain free scooping of your favorite desert food. Designed by Michael Chou, an aerospace engineer hailing from Michigan, this tool is configured so as to encourage users to use larger muscles – like those in their chest and arms – to shovel through ice cream as opposed to scooping it up. Far from a simple fix, this tool went through nearly 40 different iterations and hours and hours of work before it was given the thumbs up and introduced to the sore wristed public. Now comes the tough question – is it good that we can now scoop ice cream more easily? Yes and no. It probably doesn’t mean anything good for your new years resolution (how’s that going?) but your wrists sure will thank you for it. [Purchase]
