The hot dog of tomorrow:

Old news, but a few weeks ago there was a child that choked to death while eating a hotdog.
Obviously the response was not to place any responsibility on the parent. (You know, maybe raise them to take smaller bites and not eat like an animal?)
Instead, we must ban hotdogs! Or redesign them so they aren't a choking hazard.

"According to both common sense and the American Academy of Pediatrics, there are two truths about hot dogs which neither science nor industry can afford to ignore: kids love hot dogs, and hot dogs are the perfect size and shape for a child to choke on. To wit: "If you were to take the best engineers in the world and asked them to design a perfect plug for a child's airway, you couldn't do better than a hot dog," one AAP doctor said.

As such, the hot dog is in need of a redesign. So the folks at Fast Company took a look at California design house RKS's quest to cook up a completely rethought hot dog, and they did it using a design tool that is decidedly child-approved: the Play-Doh Fun Factory."

Here are a few other concepts from RKS:
