We have a hard enough time making omelets that don’t break apart on us when folding them over, but this Korean chef makes it look easy to create one with a swirled design that looks like a tornado. The best part – it gets stacked atop a dome of fried rice and surrounded with a moat of tomato sauce. Get in our bellies!
You’ve gotta break some eggs to make a YouTube video. The Slow Mo Guys broke out the big guns with the Phantom TMX 7510 high-speed camera to capture footage of eggs being pierced with a bullet at as much as 1 million frames per second. While the slowest shots are amazing, the resolution drops off dramatically around 100,000 fps.
The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences answers a question none of us had, but are nonetheless fascinated by the answer. We now know that if you crack open an egg while diving 60 feet below the ocean’s surface, its yolk and white hold together as a unit. We wonder if they brought a hot pan with a lid down there if the egg would cook.
LEGO builder AstonishingStudios wants to eventually build a machine that can cook and assemble an entire Egg McMuffin. First on the list – a robot that breaks open an egg and separates it from its shell. It can also split up its yolk and its white. The trickiest part was engineering the part that delicately holds the egg and cracks it.
Designer agepbiz has been creating a series of fun 3D-printable models which can be stored inside of a matching toy egg. Each one is designed to be printed in place, without the need for support structures. You can download the models to print your own over on Cults.
Easter eggs are usually made from, uh, eggs… or maybe chocolate. But metalsmith shurap likes his eggs really, really hard-boiled. So to celebrate Easter 2020, he made himself an egg out of steel cable. We love the intricate damascus patterns that emerged in the finished piece.
Artist Marcello Barenghi presents a time-lapse video of him creating a photorealistic image of a fried egg using colored pencils, paints, and airbrushing. The simulated shine is so impressive that we want to grab a fork right now and poke it into our screen. Breakfast time!
