Would love to see one in clear silicone...

You can do the same thing with an empty water bottle...

... as a matter of fact, soon after a youtube video of a Japanese man doing this very thing with a water bottle, people started selling fancy versions.

Nine times out of ten I want whites that are free of any yolk - to make some form of meringue or (less sensitive to yolk contamination) to use the egg whites as a protein binder. I prefer to have yolks away from each white - and the tool here is a bit of a problem where you could contaminate a dozen whites where the last yolk breaks…

Egg yokes are commonly used in classic French sauces, pastry, and desserts like Chocolate Mousse. Egg whites have many, many more uses and they are commonly used in many other cuisines than classic French.

The tool looks like Douglas Adams' Babel Fish to me.

A "reverse" separator, as opposed to saving the yolk and letting the white slip through.

Remember the aluminum one every one had in their kitchen drawer? However, today's egg yolks seem to be more fragile and break just from falling into the dish. I wonder if this orange Fishy will be too hard on them with his cute little mouth.
