Silicone Divider Core that You Pull to EXTRACT the Ice from the Tube!

In this concept, there would be a silicone core that fits into the tube to provide the dividers (to help "chop up" the ice). When you're ready to use it, just pull the core to get the ice cubes out. Differently shaped cores could divide the ice in different sizes and shapes. This concept still works if you bend or impact the tube to crush or break up the ice. I mainly thought this was needed to help get the ice out of the tube.

I think this is neat. How do you hold the water in the tube, is there a cap for the top? If there is a cap a person will have to have slender fingers to pull the ring up out of the tube to use this. Instead of a ring, a cap should be attached to the divider. Pulling on the cap will bring the divider to the top for removal.

Good point. I did not show the cap and should have. The ring would be integrated into the cap. THANKS!

Steve this is the only practical design as long as they make the divider fins larger.

Agree. I just sketched up the basic concept. THANKS!

I like this idea better than cracking the tube with disks. Silicon core can be made into different size/shapes, ie, quartered to fit water bottles or shorter tubes to fit drinking glasses.

Thanks Marivel! I really appreciate the feedback.

This is great. Different inserts, and maybe have them fit together. Also, the "string" could run down one side, instead of the middle.

Thanks Justin. Great input. The different inserts is exactly what I was thinking. I also like the idea of trying the "string" down one side. Be interesting to see how the torquing forces would work and if that would cause binding of the ice... but worth trying. Thanks again.

I like this. Manually pulling the ice out instead of letting gravity do it. This seems like a fool proof way to get the ice out every time.

About This Project

Community Design Phase

In this project, we want you to submit sketches, images, videos, and other visuals that illustrate design directions for Jenson’s Ice Tubes.

Quirky Design Staff usually post up sketches with our community, but this time we want you guys to take a stab at it first in the Community Design Phase.

We want to be inspired by your ideas before we start sketching. We will choose the strongest concepts to help inform our design direction.
