Hallworth, M. et al.
Computer engineers from Samsung, pressured by corporate to create a top-selling computer chip, recently revealed the new SpicyCHIP 4512, the first integrated circuit made from silicon and sriracha that can function as both a potato chip and computer chip.
The chips come as welcome relief for programmers world-wide who get desperately hungry after the standard 16 straight days of overtime work.
“We’re very excited about this” said Brandon Doherty of Samsung Electronics, as he opened up his motherboard and offered us a snack. “It’s about time this was invented. When people were talking about ‘chips,’ I always thought people WERE referring to potato chips. It’s nice to know that now I have a computer full of them when I finish work at 3 in the morning and everything is closed.”
“It was a race to first, and they beat us there,” said Corey Yeats of Pringles. “All of our prototypes were too curved and too difficult to reach from the bottom of the can. Also, the oils from the chips caused more real fires than actual computing processes.”
Samsung says the chips are available at Best Buy for $12.99 and at CostCo for $3.99 per bag.
