Motorized ice cream cones

I've always thought the ice cream cone was a perfect food- it makes a messy, melty food like ice cream completely manageable, even while walking, and then you eat the dish itself- nothing left to have to throw away or wash. I'm a proponent of having most foods available in cones, something that apparently is already happening in parts of Europe and Asia, where you can get pizza in a cone. It makes so much more sense to me than a floppy, drippy wrapping like a tortilla that leaves you with more filling on hands and clothes than in your mouth.

So I think the ice cream cone is perfect as is, but for people who are still into that apparently passe low-carb thing, and want the cone experience for their Splenda-sweetened frozen "non-dairy treat," there's always the motorized ice cream cone. Not only does it provide a cone without calories (though you can't eat it, of course), but it actually spins around by itself so you don't even have to exert your tongue or wrist while eating your ice cream. A little silly, to be sure, but ice cream is never as good to me when it's just eaten in a dish, and if you've got one of these around, you've always got a cone.

The motorized ice cream cone is $9.95, and available in four translucent colors from Hog Wild Toys.

Many people are amused by these but for people with disabled hands these are useful ways of eating ice cream. Recently it has been reported that ice cream is a good way to increase caloric intake for elderly who are at risk for malnutrition. Many elderly don't have the dexderity or finger/hand strength to spoon feed themselves easily, hence the malnutrtion risk, automatic ice cream cones are fun and useful way for them to eat ice cream easily.
