Ramen has been a staple in college cuisine for quite some time now.  It’s been voted the best invention of 20th century Japan – by the Japanese.  It’s because of how inexpensive and edible it is.  35 cents, tasty, salty, and damn quick.  What’s not to like?  Ramen can also be quite filling if you do your own thing (adding veggies, meat, eggs, etc…) with it.  Enter the Hack College Ramen Inforgraphic, exploring all that is their love of Ramen.  Click below for a bigger pic.

Nissin Cup Noodle Transformer – Noodle Awesome

Nissin Cup Noodle TransformerNo doubt you’re familiar with the Nissin Cup Noodle Styrofoam cup.  Many a college student has survived years on this salty treat.  To help celebrate its 40th Anniversary and for feeding penniless coeds for many decades, Cup Noodle maker Nissin created the Robo Cup Noodle Timer. The robot – disguised as a Cup Noodle container, is not only a movie worthy transformer, but is also a 3-minute timer to let you know when your instant ramen is ready.  Awesome indeed.  The timer was developed by Japanese robotics company Vstone and is only available in a lottery sponsored by Nissin.  Screw Powerball.  This is one contest I need to win.  Unfortunately the website is totally in Kanji and I’m just not that skilled – neither is Google Translator.  Boo!
