It’s all-too common to feel hungry while you’re deeply engrossed in an intense gaming session. If only there was some way for our snack to appear right in front of our mouths, things would be so much easier. Well, that’s exactly what this self-feeding gaming headset, dubbed “Hunger Hammer” by Pringles, a popular brand of potato chips intends to do.
Pringles created a series of 3D-printed components that can be attached to a Razer headset to create a chip-feeding machine. As part of the headset, a motorized arm will bring a chip in front of the player’s mouth for him/her to eat it, reports Engadget. Pringles chips can be stacked in a tube on the side of your headset. You need to push a button on the headset or the remote, and the motorized arm will bring the chip to you. But, according to Pringles, the headset is still in a “beta prototype” phase.
Although the whole idea of the headsets sounds interesting and creative, it lacks the accuracy and there are times when the arm of the headset aim towards your nose as opposed to aiming towards your mouth. Moreover, as Engadget reports, the headset is also “surprisingly loud” that really hampers your concentration when trying to focus on the game.
Also, there’s no way for you to adjust the arm which doesn’t help. In all, the headset seems more of a fun tech gimmick sort of a product that definitely manages to catch your attention and add some fun sans the efficient functionality.
