Sand Shapers Sand & Snow Carving Tool

By Andrew Liszewski

After a week of wall-to-wall 3D TVs at CES it’s nice to find something different and unique to get that nasty taste out of my mouth. And this Sand Shaper more than fits the bill. It’s a simple handheld tool that allows you to create near perfect spheres out of compacted sand or even snow, for those of you living under a blanket of white these days. Creating the spheres looks to be more about the technique than the device itself, but the Sand Shaper seems easy enough for even a toddler to use. Check out this video to see what I mean.

I can’t seem to find any pricing info on the company’s website or where to buy them, but I can’t imagine it would be anything more than $10 at most.

Update: Get em’ here for $12 a pop, or a set of 4 different sizes for $40. Thanks to everyone who provided links in the comments.
