Rice Krispies: Amplified sounds of snap, crackle and pop

    Here is another invention in a long list of products that we do not need in our everyday lives. Artist and designer Dominic Wilcox just wanted to make some noise with his latest invention. He invented a cereal bowl that amplifies the sound of Rice Krispies when they snap, crackle, and pop. Sir, you got our attention!

    “The sound of Rice Krispies popping is a well-known sound for many breakfast eaters, particularly from their childhood. Instead of hearing a quiet snap crackle and pop why not increase the sound? This technological cereal bowl amplifies the sound of Rice Krispies using a microphone and volume control. Simply fill the bowl with Rice Krispies, pour in the milk, with the bowl and increase the volume of the pops by turning the dial.”

    Fun Fact: Snap! Crackle! and Pop!, the animated cartoon mascots for Rice Krispies, were created by illustrator Vernon Grant in the 1930s.
