I think it is safe to say that the Salt & Pepper 'Bots are the quirkiest condiment containers of all time. Designed by Marc Owens, the Salt & Pepper 'Bots were created to literally and metaphorically spice up meals by passing themselves across the table.

A rotation of the wrist is all it takes to wind up these shakers and send them shuffling across the table. While wind-up robots aren't anything new, I challenge you to find a set of salt and pepper shakers that can pass themselves. You can check out the Salt & Pepper 'Bots in action in the video here, and you can pick up a set yourself for a mere $12 -- a small price to pay when you consider the fact that you'll never be on the hook for passing the salt or pepper again.
