This is probably old news to some...I caught this story on msnbc, http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032619//vp/42462968#42462968

It talks about the recent sale of Pringles for $2Billion and how the chip's shape is a perfect hyperbolic paraboloid.

I was wondering if any Mathcad members would be willing to recreate the Pringle using Mathcad, display their take on the hyperbolic paraboloid or share other examples of engineered food here.

For some inspiration, here is a Ho Hos extruder, http://communities.ptc.com/docs/DOC-1347

Re: The Math of Pringles

I don't know what codec you used for that video, but it does not play correctly for me using either RealPlayer or Windows Media Player.

Re: The Math of Pringles

Bad news. You just took 1 year off your life. Per Pringle. It's the super, extra tasty added trans fat, added salt, and added MSG brand.
