bApple has just released the all new iSilverware. The creators of the worlds most successful smartphone promises that iSilverware improves on the design and function of the eating utensils that people have used for thousands of years and that the utensils will interlock together making them portable so you can take them with you everywhere.
“We’ve looked at how we can make the eating experience simpler and more refined with our goal being to revolutionizing the way people eat,” a bApple spokesperson excitedly declared.
At first glance the new iSilverware looks very similar to the utensils you just ate your lunch with. The most notable difference is the fact that the iSilverware set only comes with two utensils compared to the traditional three. You have a fork and a knife but notably missing is the spoon.
“Where did the spoon go? I’m afraid the dish ran away it,” the bApple spokesperson said with a chuckle. “It took a lot of courage for us as a company to remove the spoon. Truthfully it’s not used as much as the fork however and simplifying the utensils down to two will make the eating experience less confusing for the end user. We must push toward the future and that’s what we’ve done.”
Also being showcased was the iFeedYouDrone. This will be sold separately and is what the company sees replacing our beloved spoons. The device is wireless and has a four hour charge which should get you through 3 meals a day as long as none of them are too long and you don’t eat many snacks. The drone simply scoops up your food and flies it to your mouth feeding you like a baby and even has a feature that makes an airplane noise. Speculation is that it will retail for $159.
Some immediately expressed concern about such a high cost for a device when we all have literally dozens of traditional spoons laying around our homes. bApple understands this could be a difficult transition for some so they are including a converter dongle free of charge with every set of iSilverware. It simply locks into the proprietary grooves of the fork and allow you to attach one of your old spoons to the end.
Thoughts on the lack of spoon with the new silverware have been mixed but some common concerns have surfaced. The biggest worry about the converter is that you will not be able to use your fork as a fork while you have the converter attached to a spoon, basically meaning there will be no way one can use a fork and spoon at the same time. Additionally the aesthetic appeal of the new product is greatly diminished with the dongle attached or sitting nearby on the table and one will have to ensure they have this bulky adapter with their iSilverware when they go to work or a friend’s house. Of course the solution is to pay bApple more money to get your spoon back in the form of the iFeedYouDrone, but the drone is so small that many worry the device could easily be lost or run out of power at inopportune times.
