The 2019 Super Bowl sucked, and everyone but Patriots fans will agree with that statement. There were also no really good commercials, and the half time act was universally panned, leaving me wondering why I was even watching.
Inspired by a classic YouTube video, The Slow Mo Guys decided to deploy a couple of airbags in microwave ovens so that they could capture the destruction at 2,000 frames per second. It is an awesome idea, because who doesn’t love to watch things getting demolished in slow motion?
There’s nothing more boring than waiting around for your meal to cook. Well, Colin Furze has a solution. The Play-A-Wave, a game console for bored chefs (no, not board chefs.)
Furze built an LCD screen is built into the door, which had to be modified with added shielding to prevent the screen from going all wonky when the microwave is on.
Craftster forum user BadWolf314 of Boise, ID is a Whovian and when her husband wanted his own soda machine for their home, she was more than happy to oblige in the form of a TARDIS so that it matched their movie room.
The microwave is the lazy hungry man’s best friend. Developer Nathan Broadbent went and modified his oven to become even more lazy user-friendly. His Picrowave oven is voice-activated, reads bar codes, can be taught how to cook a particular item and more.
Generally speaking, it’s not a good idea to put things in the microwave that don’t belong in there. But that doesn’t stop the curious minds of people like us from wanting to see what happens to other stuff when you jostle around its atoms in the microwave.
Wars and battles are being fought using increasingly cutting edge technology. In the future, the world may be so dependent on electronics – our soldiers might even be robots – that should a group’s systems and devices fail it might as well wave a white flag.
Robots can do all kinds of crazy things. They can save our lives in disaster situations, they can clean our homes, they can kill in wartime and now they can use microwaves. No, not as sensors or weapons.
Cooking from the inside out is what microwave cooking computing is all about. Of course if your computer were a microwave, you won’t be able to escape the aroma of the ghost of Hot Pockets past as it heats up.
If you’re ever on the other side of the room while you’ve got food cooking in the microwave, you know it can be difficult to see how things are doing in there. Here’s a quirky concept that’s designed to help with that relatively minor inconvenience.
Like many ubiquitous tools and appliances, it’s kind of hard to think of ways to improve the microwave oven. But Brazilian cooking appliance manufacturer BGH has done just that by adding one simple feature: audio playback.
This isn’t the first microwave that I’ve seen with built in YouTube capabilities, but it is the latest attempt. The idea is that human life has become so saturated with mindless content, that we can’t even cook a meal without being entertained.
After a long day at the office, I just want to switch on the television and watch away while I have my dinner. Sometimes, I get home to cold food and I could not be more grateful for whoever invented the microwave.
I’m not much of an outdoors guy, but I’m pretty sure that a lot of campers think that preparing and cooking food is part of the experience. If you’re not in that camp though, you might want to take a look at the WaveBox, a portable microwave oven.
Keita Watanabe, Ph.D., and Shota Matsuda of Japan’s Keio University have won a couple of awards for their crazy, yet somehow logical concept for a microwave. Called the Castoven, it eschews the transparent glass panel typically seen on microwave ovens in place of a 10.4-inch LCD display.
Created by “microwave expert” Gordon Andrews and designer Stephen Frazer in partnership with Heinz, the Beanzawave is the world’s smallest portable microwave. It’s powered via USB and uses “a combination of mobile phone frequencies” to heat whatever you put in there.
