SNACTIV, The Multitasking Snacking Tool of the Future

With over 15 years of writing experience, Jonathan has had a passion for all things tech-related since watching Inspector Gadget as a child. He's disassembled countless appliances and managed to put a few back together, and one actually still works. When not writing, he can often be found playing video games or accidentally hurting himself tinkering in the garage.

SNACTIV is a gadget consisting of a small pair of chopsticks that sit above your index and middle fingers, allowing you to grab chips or Cheetos, or any other small snack without getting your fingers dirty. It’s billed as “the multi-tasking snacking tool of the future.” Is it a future I want to be part of? I’m not so sure.

Similar in concept to Chip Fingers but unnecessary to remove between snacks, SNACTIV is currently an already-funded Kickstarter project (and surprisingly not an SNL parody product), and $19 will get you a SNACTIV in either black or white. Obviously, I plan on wearing one on each hand for double-fisted snacking.

The idea is that by not touching your snacks directly, you’re preventing the migration of Cheetos or chip dust from your fingertips to your keyboard or another device. Now, I’m not sure if you can tell from looking at my keyboard, but that is not a problem I’ve ever cared about. The disgustingness has just always been another layer of computer security as far as I’m concerned.
