The unhappier you are, the more ice cream you get


Dr. Whippy is a new concept for vending ice cream. The machine asks you a series of questions to analyze the stress levels in your voice. Depending on how unhappy it thinks you are, it serves you with the amount of ice cream you need to feel better.


Dr Whippy was designed by Demitrios Kargotis and was exhibited at the Ars Electronica exhibition in Austria.

I've always known ice-cream would be used as a cure one day :-)

Where the heck do you find these things?

Susan Mo said...

I wonder if they make a bucket big enough for all of the ice cream I would need...

Karen said...

Ha! Right now that thing would fill up the darn room for me!!

@ Loops: I'd settle for a decent coffee maker at my work, but a cure-for-all-stresses ice cream machine would come handy from time to time, too.

@ Betty: Hehe I've got my sources ;-)
I found out about Dr Whippy from a psychologist friend.

@ Susan Mo & Karen: What can I say, other than I know the feeling!

@ Shadowfalcon: Or back to the UK, as I believe the guy who designed this is based here :-)
