This invention is awesome! Here’s a cereal bowl that looks like a gramophone… because it kind of is! Inventor Dominic Wilcox created it so you could hear the famous snap, crackles, and pops of Rice Krispies breakfast cereal!
Here’s what I know about his “Snap Crack and Pop Amplifier Cereal Bowl“:
Kellogg’s challenged artist and designer Dominic Wilcox to make breakfast more interesting and fun for families and children going back to school in September. Over the course of 10 weeks he designed 7 inventions and prototypes from a robot spoon to a head worn cereal serving device.
The sound of Rice Krispies popping is a well known sound for many breakfast eaters, particularly from their childhood. Instead of hearing a quiet snap crackle and pop why not increase the sound? This technological cereal bowl amplifies the sound of Rice Krispies using a microphone and volume control. Simply fill the bowl with Rice Krispies, pour in the milk, with on the bowl and increase the volume of the pops by turning the dial.
