Clever Invention Found -- Folding Fork

In my usual invention pontificaitons on this blog, I profile my Eureka moments of inventions that are needed, or ideas that strike me that could have commercial potential.

However this blog entry is the opposite. I have found an incredibly clever invention -- a folding plastic fork.

The other day, I opened a styrofoam container of instant Chinese noodles. I haven't eaten them in a while. As I pulled back the foil, there was an ingenious plastic fork provided to eat the noodles. The fork folded to fit inside the package.

You unfolded the fork, and snapped the plastic hinge support in place. Here are the pics:





This struck me as particularly ingenious and I wish that I invented it.
