Introduction: Awesome Gadget for Pringles Fans

That moment when you try to get out chips from the bottom of Pringles can.

If you have small hands, you might be able to get them out with ease.

Another option is to shake them out, but usually it also leads to vacuum cleaning.

In this instructable, I demonstrate a way to make a gadget that can solve these problems.

Step 1:

    Really cool! I would make it but, I don't have a 3D printer. But still its a greate instructable!

    presumably you could take the pringles out, drop the unit in the bottom, and put the pringles back in if you didnt want to cut the bottom off. That would keep it airtight.

    can you i download the 3d printer file somewhere?

    Wow, a clever idea! I like it very much!

    This is brilliant! It's simply genius to approach it from the bottom! You are my hero.

    You should totally contact Pringles. This is an epic idea and a job well done. This is even better then the Pringles speaker ;D.

    Hey nice Instructable, do you have a link to the plans for the print head shown in the pictures? Looks awesome

    Does your device seal up the bottom of the can while it is use? If it doesn't, what keeps the crumbs off the floor or table?
