Now, here's the point where the naysayers would tell you to temper your expectations, because this is a design concept that may or may not actually work in the real world. And y'know what? They're absolutely right: we'd be amazed if the Egg Map ever turns into a real product, ingenious though its design is.
But really, let's all appreciate this for what it is: an elegant solution to a problem we've all run into while traveling. If by some miracle the science behind its construction pans out, and it actually turns into a legit product you can buy, so much the better. You'll be able to say "Hey dude, pass me the egg" while walking down the street, and it'll be a totally reasonable request.
And who doesn't want that?
Gianni Jaccoma is a staff writer for Thrillist, and he wants to make a Kickstarter to get this thing made. Follow his hopeful tweets @gjaccoma, and send your news tips to email@example.com
