Quite an a'peeling idea.
There's a piece of wisdom that is often attributed to Bill Gates that goes: "I will always choose a lazy person to do a difficult job, because he will find an easy way to do it." (I can't be bothered to go through all the trouble of verifying if Gates actually said it, so I'll just say he did and then let somebody correct me in the comments.)
With that in mind, the redditor's dad who apparently came up with this way to mass-peel apples for his restaurant must be one of the laziest people in the world.
We know that a similar concept works with potatoes, but I wonder other fruits, vegetables and foodstuffs can be made easier with power tools. Hey, what if someone made, like, a pitcher or bowl with a sort of mini power drill at its base? I wonder if that could be useful for anything.
