Internet frenzy over Bunnings’ “genius” snag invention
Here in Straya, one of the truest cultural traditions you can enjoy is a trip to a Bunnings hardware store for a Bunnings snag. Deadset, if you ever come here as a tourist, make sure you jump on this s**t because it’s a f**ken culinary experience of the highest order. Still if this video’s anything to go by, Bunnings aren’t scared to take their traditions into the future with some kickass technology: a saucing machine.
Before we go on, we’ve gotta flag something. Just this weekend, the misso and I took a trip to Bunnings and once the bloke was done saucing me snag, I was furious. Instead of evenly applying the tomato sauce and mustard, he just f**ken blobbed it all right in the middle. It was, to be completely fair, a disgrace.
And that’s why we wish our local bunnings had one of these machines. Have a f**ken go at it – two sauce applicator pipes perfectly delivering zigzagged lines of sauce. Maaaate, it’s a thing of beauty. Yeah, nah, if that doesn’t butter your bread, there’s something wrong with you.
So let’s have a look at this thing. Right now, the machine’s at Bunnings Hawthorn in Melbourne, and c**ts are loving it. Basically, it’s a repurposed 3D printer designed to perfectly apply sauce with the help of pullies and some grouse programming.
It was designed by Melbourne’s Connected Community Hackerspace (CCHS), and their president Shane Rogers reckons, “It took about a month of casual pottering to get the project from joke to condiment spewing machine of doom. There have been a few mutters about robot overlords taking over the world and rather more inquiries about an onion dispenser.”
He also reckons, it’s been a great learning experience: “For our part, we are learning from how it is used and refining such elements as we can, and we are thinking about the onion problem. For the most part, though, everybody seems to love it, even if they don’t always get how it’s supposed to be used.”
Final thought: While we love the community-minded nature of Bunnings snags being used to fundraise for community groups, we don’t really need lazy old Baz blobbing his mustard right in the middle of a sausage and not evenly applying it, so we want to see this thing go nationwide. How about you?
