Colbert's Future-Winning Inventions Include the Fork Phone

Last night Stephen Colbert took President Obama's challenge to "win the future." "If we're gonna make America #1 again," said Colbert, "then it is the personal responsibility regardless of expertise or education to invent something groundbreaking." So Colbert showed off the future of American industry: the toaster with wheels ("perfect when you're at the bottom of an incline, and you need toast"), the five-handled razor, and the revolutionary telecommunications device, the fork-phone. It's still being beta-tested though; Colbert later tweeted: "My fork-phone drops a lot of calls and the occasional tortellini."
