It is pretty amazing how many cup noodles are consumed by college students on a semester basis. Whether for late-night charettes or coding frenzies, the easy-to-make commodity might be even more prevalent once students learn that Nissin Food Products, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the original Cup Noodle, had VStone put together a robot timer as a prize giveaway. Robo Cup Noodle Timer unfolds from the figural cup into a robot, which spouts trivia, fortunes, and proverbs while entertaining during the 3-minute waiting time for the noodles to cook. But be wary; you won’t want to pour hot water onto this little fella by accident!
