The latte art game is about to enter a new era. Foam hearts are cute, but what do they really say? Enter CinniBird, a Kickstarter-funded kitchen gadget that lets you literally write on your food—not just lattes but anything—with cinnamon, paprika, cocoa powder or presumably any other fine grained edible that can be streamed through the pen-shaped gizmo.

With nine days to go, the Kickstarter has already garnered more than double its original $5000 goal in pledged money. And if you're looking for a gift for the home cook who has literally everything else, the spice pens are already on sale.

Check out CinniBird in action:

The Origins of 36 Marvel Characters, Illustrated

No matter what their powers, every super hero has an origin story, from Spider-Man’s radioactive bite to Iron Man’s life-threatening chest shrapnel. In their latest poster, the designers at Pop Chart Lab have taken their infographic savvy to the Marvel Universe, charting the heroic origins of 36 different Marvel characters through miniature, minimalist comics.

Without using any words, they’ve managed to illustrate Bucky Barnes's plane explosion and subsequent transformation into the Winter Soldier, Jessica Jones’s car crash, the death of the Punisher’s family, and other classic stories from the major Marvel canon while paying tribute to the comic book form.

Explore the poster below, and see a zoomable version on Pop Chart Lab’s website.

Keep your eyes open for future Marvel-Pop Chart crossovers. The Marvel Origins: A Sequential Compendium poster is “the first release of what we hope to be a marvelous partnership,” as Pop Chart Lab’s Galvin Chow puts it. Prints are available for pre-order starting at $37 and are scheduled to start shipping on March 8.
