Here’s How To Make a Push-Up Pringles Can
Last week, Late Night host Jimmy Fallon asked his viewers to tweet in ideas of things they wish existed using the hashtag #WhyDontTheyMakeThat. Submissions ranged from covered shopping carts (so no one has to know you live off frozen pizza and donuts) to a “Nobody Cares” button on Facebook. The best by far, though, was this little gem:
A push-up Pringles can. So you don’t need the hands of an infant to eat those damn potato chips. #whydonttheymakethat

Well @TheAmazingBeck, guess what? You might not be able to buy it in stores (yet), but the Push-Up Pringles Can actually exists. Sort of.
Designed by instructables user Jason Poel Smith of DIYHacksAndHowTos, this hack involves using thread, pliers and sheet metal to create a small, pull-able platform to place at the bottom of the can. Once installed, all you need to do is tug on the strings and watch as your favorite stackable chips come up to you, instead of having to dig around for them.
Check the video below for full instructions:
Of course, with all the extra nuts and bolts, it’s highly unlikely anyone would actually adopt this trick unless they’re just dripping in free time, so many commenters have suggested alternate push-up can concepts, such as installing a spring loaded platform that will raise automatically as chips are eaten, or a screw and crank mechanism kind of like stick deodorant.
Until then, at least there’s still the old “pour out the whole can and eat in one sitting” method.
