Building a better hot dog


"If you were to take the best engineers in the world and asked them to design a perfect plug for a child's airway, you couldn't do better than a hot dog." That's according to a doctor with the American Academy of Pediatrics.

To solve the problem, Fast Company set design firm RKS to the task of creating a less-deadly processed meat paste sausage. Their solution was this spiral dog, the result of some delightful experiments with a Play-Doh Fun Factory.
