That kitchen drawer full of plastic takeout utensils is about to get some new company thanks to The Chork, a chopstick-fork combo making a major fast-food rollout on November 10.
They can be used as a fork, split vertically into chopsticks with cute little two-tine forks on the ends, or kept together as chopstick cheaters to reduce fumbling with two loose chopsticks. Some folks have reported that the cheater option may snap in two unexpectedly unless your pinching is of a gentle nature.
Essentially what’s we’re looking at here is two chopsticks that have been glued both to each other and to a fork in a wonderfully efficient design that looks a bit like a weapon from Mortal Kombat and sounds a bit like something a bored teenager might invent in the school holidays.
If you don't eat Panda Express but want to try them out, you can buy a pack.
Bonus video: a manufacturer's video so inept that it's kind of charming.

He had been a manager of Woolworth’s department stores, from Toronto, Ontario to Terrence, British Columbia. He served the chain loyally for decades of his life, never questioning when they sent […]
Asian Boss asked Japanese people on the streets in Tokyo to try American style sushi. “I can see that they try to hide the fish flavor by using mayonnaise and adding a bunch of avocado.” Indeed.

These days, there isn’t much our iPhone camera can’t do – except feel like an actual phone. Despite years of steadily increasing resolution and image sensing technology, we’re still taking shots awkwardly with two hands, fumbling for the shutter button. Leave it to an avid photographer to design Shuttercase, a versatile iPhone case that solves […]
