McDonald's Thinks it's Time for a Sci-Fi Milkshake Straw!

The team from NK Labs and JACE with backgrounds in electrical and aerospace engineering test axial flow of the STRAW which stands for Suction Tube for Reverse Axial Withdrawal

Okay, it's a straw made specifically for the Chocolate Shamrock Shake, so that you can suck both flavors at the same time rather than switching between chocolate and mint.

A list of participating McDonald's locations can be found on the company's website if you want to be one of the lucky few to drink out of this incredibly advanced product.

Donald Trump defends Melania and insists she is being 'so unfairly maligned'
It's no secret that the first lady hasn't exactly been the most public figure since husband Donald Trump became the president. I think he got really exhausted of Trump Tower when he couldn't move, and now he's basically got another version of it.

In developing the S.T.R.A.W., which self-mockingly stands for "Suction Tube for Reverse Axial Withdrawal", McDonald's consulted aerospace engineers from JACE and NK Labs. From a physics perspective, it's actually quite hard to deliver a proportional amount of both chocolate and mint flavors with each sip.

McDonald's STRAW was announced via a Facebook Live event today.

Last week, McDonald's announced new flavors on the Shamrock Shake. Hosted by YouTuber Austin Evans, it also stars McDonald's team member Darci Forrest, senior director of the innovation team at McDonald's. Nevertheless, McDonald's argued that it ordered only two thousand such straws. It will be available in limited quantities to individuals who actually desire a fancy crafted straw that is available in its own outrageous case. But that's exactly what we did. However at the end of the day, all the other straws are the same unlike the McDonald's new straw.

One of the inventors behind the straw, principal engineer and managing partner Seth Newburg, said: "It was a puzzling assignment but one with an ambitious goal". According to McDonald's, their new tubular sipping device required some fairly complex computational fluid dynamics simulations to get the flow right and make sure it works just as well at the bottom of your shake as it did on the first sip.
