Designer Hiroyuki Shiratori has created the evolution eraser by etching out the ape-to-men evolution silhouettes so familiar to many of us. If you have one of these, you can be sure that every time you make a writing or sketching mistake, you can speed up the process of human evolution by erasing your all-too-human mistakes with it. Alternatively, if you think humans have gotten dumber over the years, you can always start by erasing with the human tail-end instead of the ape one.
