Now that's what I call a nice invention ^_^

The international competition, which saw over 2,400 entries into 29 categories, and was won overall by a team of talented students from China. They are WeiWei He, Chuan Shi and Wen Ying Lu studying at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, who won with their excellent work for Dog Poo Spray in Product Design & Innovation, sponsored by British Aerosol Manufacturers' Association.

Jokes aside, I seriouly think that these kids came up with a clever product.

I am eating right now. When I read the thread title, I threw up a little bit in my mouth cause I have 2 dogs and I know how smelly dog poop can be.

Oh god! [clutches mouth]

I found about it in my boingboing.net RSS feed. ^_^

I would bet that this is going to be marketted, at least in China. These kids could be making a lot of money.

Lacero, laminate it and it won't smell as bad :D

How do you spray the bottom of the "pile?" How environmentally friendly is the spray coating?

A nice, creative idea, but maybe not so practical to implement.

OTOH, I can see a lot of "paperweights" being given as gifts next year for Christmas. :eek:

I guess you do the top first, lift the stick, then do the bottom.

Not sure but I think they will use something safe:

Garrick Hamm, Creative Director, Williams Murray Hamm and D&AD Education Chairman adds, “I always hope to come away from student judging with the names of a couple of new, exciting creatives, or a killer idea to share with the rest of my studio – but nothing prepared me for dog ****! Not only was this a clever, environmentally useful idea but it was extremely well thought through and the execution was slicker than an Italian racing driver. If these creatives haven’t got jobs by the end of the summer, please send me an email…but I have a funny feeling they will be busy.”

Can't argue here ^_^

A doodoo-on-a-stick paperweight? O_O

Reminds me of that movie "Envy" with Jack Black and Ben Stiller:

Plot:
Ben Stiller and Jack Black star as Tim and Nick, best friends, neighbors and co-workers, whose equal footing is suddenly tripped up when one of Nick's harebrained get-rich-quick schemes actually succeeds: Vapoorizer, a spray that literally makes dog poop, or any other kind for that matter, evaporate into thin air -- to where exactly is anyone's guess. Tim, who had scoffed at Nick's idea and passed on an opportunity to get in on the deal, can only watch as Nick's fortune -- and Tim's own envy -- grow to equally outrageous proportions. When the flames of jealousy are fanned by an oddball drifter (Walken) who imposes himself into the situation, Tim's life careens wildly out of control ... taking Nick's with it.
(probably one of the stupidest movies I've ever seen)

**** on a stick, what will the kiddies think up next. :eek:

Though it is amazing the expense and lengths people will go through to avoid walking the dog and picking up the gifts left behind.

It's still a better idea than this "Brown Jelly Beans" dispenser ^_^:

Oinking good fun? Oh well.

Must be easier to stockpile containers of liquid nitrogen in China... :rolleyes:

From a dog owner's standpoint, this seems pretty ridiculous. Now, instead of carrying around just baggies, I need to carry around sticks, a liquid nitrogen dispenser, and baggies.

Maybe I'll just carry around a jar of shellac instead. I like a nice high-gloss finish on my dog poop.

Although the liquid nitrogen may work better on poop that isn't as, shall we say, well-formed... :eek:

I'm sorry to hear that it caused you discomfort. Being a nurse this is no problem at all. Just a every day occurrence. I also pickup after our dogs at home. After drying the smell is almost gone.

Thanks. Like I needed that mental picture. ;)

My goodness, just think what kind of trouble the kiddies could get up to with cans of liquid nitrogen lying around the house...

Nitrogen is lighter than butane and you need a very strong container to keep it under pressure (something like an oxygen container).

That's not laminating at all... but I have laminated a few things that shouldn't have been in my days at Kinko's. You'd be amazed at how long a booger can get when heated and pressed through the rollers of a laminating machine...
:eek:
