Have you ever had problems cracking your nuts?! Getting a walnut out of its shell is probably one of the biggest challenges you’re ever going to face. Getting to that sweet snack is an immensely difficult task, which means you are going to need an immensely effective tool.

So, designers Xiaofei Wang and Beibei Wu have designed the Walnut Yo-Yo, the concept that will crack walnuts for you by just playing with a Yo-Yo. Simply place the coveted treat inside the orb and then smash it against a hard wall, the floor, your tv or even girlfriend. -) Any hard surface should work.

The Walnut Yo-Yo puts a clever spin on a task that is otherwise frustrating and mundane. Just don’t get too carried away with it at family functions—no one appreciates getting knocked in the head with a walnut. [via YankoDesign]
