Icicle Picking 

Icicle Picking

After the recent snow and cold weather in Pittsburgh, these icicles started to grow outside the third floor common room window.

Like daggers made of diamonds.  How poetic!

Albert made this device inspired by an apple-picking implement. It is a laundry bag on a stick.


Here you can see another picture of the Icicle Picker XP (US Patent Pending). Albert is about to reach out and grab his first prize.

As seen on TV!

The icicle picker is now in action, in an attempt to grab the largest, most desirable icicles.

Ice Ice Baby!

Here it is. Broken but still incredible!

I agree, it is quite incredible!

Sridhar got a little out of control during the icicle picking. Albert was almost the victim of a nasty impaling.

I was frightened for his life!

If you prefer, here is a video of the icicle picking event.

You may need to turn your head sideways.

Comment It's fraudulent to write "patent pending" when it isn't.
