- FLDSMDFR by Flint Lockwood in “Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs”
In the movie “Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs” ace inventor Flint Lockwood invents something called the FLDSMDFR short for “Flint Lockwood Diatonic Super Mutating Dynamic Food Replicator” which converted water into whatever food you ordered! Wow! Imagine coming home and just pouring water to get your burger and french fries! True the machine in the story went haywire and started manufacturing live food (tacodile, cheesespiders and what not!) but it was cool while it lasted!
- Willy Wonka’s Television Room
Sure, Willy Wonka’s factory was a wonderland! But perhaps the most fascinating among its many gadgets was the contraption in the Television Room! The contraption transferred anything put inside it to thousands of television screens! Just imagine reaching out and grabbing that bag of potato chips from your television screen! Crazy? sure! Great? You betcha!
- Skiving Snackboxes by Fred and George Weasley in the Harry Potter series
Developed by their inventors over several years these came in two colour coded parts. Eating one part made you ill but not seriously so allowing you to excuse yourself from a class while chewing the other half completely restored your health, thereby allowing you ample time for more useful pursuits that would otherwise have been wasted on a mundane class! A godsend for students if you ask me! Types included Fainting Fancies, Fever Fudge, Nosebleed Nougat and Puking Pastille.
- Bhooter Rajar Prothom Bor in Goopy Gyan Bagha Byne ( The first boon to Goopy Gyan and Bagha Byne by the Ghost King)
More of magic rather than an invention but this is something every bengali child has been fascinated with since his childhood! Just clap your hands and say the name of any food item and it appears in front of you! Monda, Mithai, Kalia, Pulao, you name it and voila! The food even stopped a war! Read the story by Upendra Kishore Roychowdhury or see the film by Satyajit Ray if you haven’t already! Magically delicious!
