This fine piece of gastronomical engineering could very well be the perfect ice cream scoop. If you've ever battled to get ice cream out of a container with a more traditional-looking scoop, you'll appreciate the extra thought that's gone into the design of this one.
First off, the leading edge is serrated like a knife, so it can slash its way through even the most solid of frozen treats. And that fancy faceted design on the scoop? That's not just for futuristic looks. No, that texture prevents a scoop of ice cream from sticking like a suction cup, so it's easier to deposit onto a cone. You'd expect such innovation to be priced at a premium and only available to professionals who make their livelihood scooping, but you can get one for your own kitchen for a mere $US10 here.
