LG’s SnowWhite is like a Keurig for ice cream

Or at least it might be.

SXSW 2019 isn’t just about films, politicians, designers and social media founders. There are also gadgets here to check out. Enter LG’s SnowWhite, a concept machine designed to let you easily make ice cream at home. The SnowWhite is basically like a Keurig, featuring a pod-based system that allows you to choose the base and flavor for a variety of frozen desserts. That means it isn’t just limited to ice cream: You might also be able to make gelato, granita, sorbet, yogurt and more. I say “might” because LG is adamant that the SnowWhite is only a prototype right now — this is more about showing off what the company thinks it can create for your home.

That said, LG did just introduce its automated HomeBrew machine at CES 2019, so the SnowWhite could eventually become a reality. If it does, LG says you’ll be able to make ice cream, gelato or any of the other desserts listed above in two to five minutes. In addition to that, the system can clean itself and may offer both a touchscreen and physical dial for controlling its settings. Unfortunately, the SnowWhite at SXSW wasn’t a working model, which is disappointing because it would’ve been great to have a scoop in this Texas heat. But, considering the popularity of Keurigs, the SnowWhite isn’t a bad idea.

Unexpected Inventions from Unexpected People

brain-1 1342

There are some inventions and inventors you just grow up knowing about – Alexander Graham Bell and the telephone, Thomas Edison and the lightbulb (even though he really just improved upon it). But there are a lot of inventions lurking out there that you didn’t learn about in your elementary school history and science books – inventions from geniuses known for other creations and discoveries, and inventions from people you didn’t expect to be inventors at all. Here are a few of them…

Ale Ice Cream Inventor

Beer buffs seeking a sweet treat alternative to their traditional tipple can look forward to something special this summer – ale-flavoured ice cream.

Sheffield Hallam University student Anna Lowden invented the beery beauty on a gap year from her course in food and nutrition.

For those with a passion for their pint there’s just one snag – the ice cream contains hardly any alcohol as it’s mostly lost in the production process…

Motor-Driven Ice Cream Scooper

This Is Just As Annoying As The Crane And Hook Game At The Amusement Park

The Motor-Driven Ice Cream Scooper is a hand-held motor driven device intended to permit the user to not only handle frozen ice cream, but to simultaneously form attractive spheres. Perfect for the lazy multi-tasker, Patent# US 6840754 is one of those things that upon reflection, everyone can surely live without. It comes equipped with a half circle-shaped arc at the end of a tube, in which claws shaped as half-circles are inserted. The claws slide and upon command embed into the frozen the ice cream, their continuous rotation forming a sphere. (If you prefer another geometric shape, forget about it. Not possible.)

Non-Drip Ice Cream

 Non Drip Ice Cream, Called UFO

A Russian dairy company, MyasoMolTorg, has created a new ice cream product called UFO, which is made with the latest in stabilizer technology. Once removed from the freezer, the ice cream does not melt but rather turns into a semi-solid jelly, which makes it far les messy (unless of course you eat ice cream so quickly the melting process doesn’t have a chance).

Great or Gross Ice Cream?

The city of Yokohama has marked the 130th anniversary of the arrival of ice cream in Japan with a festival showcasing exotic regional varieties including eel, raw horse, curry, crab and potato.

Yokohama Ice Cream Expo attracted thousands of fans before it closed yesterday (SUN), according to organiser Manabu Matsumoto, who identified beef tongue ice cream from Miyagi Prefecture as the most popular variety.

“We have ice cream from all over Japan – from Hokkaido in the north to Okinawa in the south – but beef tongue has been the one that people keep coming back for,” he said.
