This is a Cookie Box and it could very well be a Da Vinci worthy creation. Why? Because, unlike the cookie jars you know, this box has a complex mechanism that needs a little team work, unless you’re born with three hands, to reveal the precious treats stashed within. About the third hand… it means you need another willing person and no, that one in the middle, to the south, doesn’t count. It need digits to work the magic.
Put together by a dude named Thijs Sondag and his pal, Gustav, this no-name brilliant creation calls for at least three hands to work the mechanism simultaneously to unlock it. Built with a combination of 3D printed parts and off-the-shelf components, this National Treasure cookie box is born out of the desire to stop himself (in this case, Thijs) from binge eating whatever snacks (obviously, including cookies) he had in the house.
As you can see from the animated gif, it works brilliantly, but being of acrylic material, we suspect it won’t stay intact for long if desperation (for snacks) kicks in. If you know what I mean. So, may we suggest that you put away whatever impact tools, i.e. hammers, you have in a safe place where the mindless cookie zombie in you won’t be able to find or access. Now for the good and bad news. First, the bad news.
However, as awesome this nameless cookie box is, you won’t be able find it in the market, but the good news is, you can build one yourself because Thijs is kind enough to detail the build so you can cobble one together for yourself – provided that you have access to a 3D printer, laser-cutting machine, and also, you are able to keep the cookie monster in you from stopping you from making this devious contraption.
This thing is, btw, definitely not Cookie monster approved. Then again, since when has any container stop the monster?
