Fork With A Thumb
Date Published: 01/29/2014 6:01 AM
Our silverware have finally adapated opposable thumbs to help us fatties consume food faster and more efficiently. The Fork With A Thumb is a wooden fork concept designed by a Japanese designer named Keisuke Tsubakimoto that won him second prize in a Japanese design contest that won him a cool ¥ 500,000, or a lavish $5,000. Sure the thumb could come in handy when eating some pasta or a salad, but I'm not sure how useful it would be while eating some mashed potatoes, rice, or really anything that you scoop and shovel into your mouth. I say put a button on the end of the fork so that you can clamp down the thumb to secure your food in place while transporting it to your face, plus it would be great for people suffering from alzheimers.
