Somen is a refreshing Japanese wheat noodle, traditionally eaten in the summer to cool off from the Japanâ€™s humid summers. Theyâ€™re most famous for being eaten as “nagashimen,” noodles flying down a bamboo pipe as would-be eaters try to catch them with their chopsticks. Itâ€™s a ton of fun, but feeling sorry for those who donâ€™t happen to live in rural Japan, Bandai has brought the fun of nagashimen to the home, with the Home Somen Shop.

Holy crap. I was told to never play with my food, but this idea is awesome. Next, I suggest some kind of meatball rolling system with tubes and elevators, and you have to shoot the meatballs with a speargun.
