Sushi Bazooka Lets You Shoot Out Sushi Rolls in Record Time

You don't have to go to a restaurant (or even take cooking classes) if you want a fresh sushi roll. Now making maki is easier than ever with the help of the handy Sushi Bazooka. The cannon-shaped kitchen device is the perfect item for making a ton of perfectly round rolls in record time. Hosting a party? Just really hungry? The easy-to-use cannon has you covered. Unlike traditional rolling mats, the bazooka offers a fool-proof design that makes the process easy, even for beginners.

To get started, line the inside of the tube with sticky rice. Next, add your desired ingredients in the middle (just like filling a burrito). Then simply push the plunger and watch the rice-lined creation pop out. You can wrap the roll in seaweed or cut immediately and serve as-is. And since you're making the rolls yourself, you can decide on the rice-to-filling ratio and how thick you want each roll.

If a roll isn't really your thing, you can also make rice cubes and spheres.

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.
