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.

    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.

    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?

    Well, actually there have been times when some crumbs managed to escape, but there is an easy way to avoid it.

    I might make an improved version
