Spice Blaster seasons your food at gun point

Spice Blaster seasons your food at gun point
The spice blaster is a project designed by Chinese designers Zhu Fei and was one of the entries from designboom’s recent “dining in 2015″ competition. We hope it becomes real in the near future, because shooting spices at food sounds like alot of fun. Not to mention the mischief you could get into with this gun. Imagine shooting pepper at that annoying someone and making them sneeze for a good half hour.

Yes this could be a fun toy. The idea here is that by using an air bag that compresses when the trigger is pressed, the spice gun blasts seasoning all over your food. This could be fun if you worked in a restaurant as well. Just run out into the dining area and randomly shoot spices at people’s food. You may not have your job after that, but those would be some good times.

R2D2 Peppermill combines droids with spice

R2D2 Peppermill
Why on Earth(Or any other planet) would you use a plain old peppermill when you can use a Star Wars droid? You wouldn’t, and I don’t blame you.

After a hard day, when Lando and Han have cleaned you out at the poker table, come home to a nice dinner, knowing that this little guy will spice up your food. Just twist R2’s domed head and delicious freshly ground pepper will fall from his undercarriage. Just try not to think about the fact that you are eating something that fell out of a robot’s butt. Still, if that appeals to you, make like a Jawa and get an R2D2 Peppermill at ThinkGeek for $19.99. Just be careful. You may just end up with a hologram of Princess Leia in your mashed potatoes, telling you that you are her only hope.
