Mark Rober is an engineer and an enthusiastic tinkerer. However, he may really be on to something with this microwave concept.
Rober has patented an infrared microwave that lets users actually “see” the heat levels through the microwave’s window. The “Better Microwave” uses a special infrared lens that allows you to view a heatmap of the food being cooked so you can better gauge its level of doneness. Just think—Hot Pockets that are properly cooked on the first try!
The user can then check out an infrared image of their food being cooked by tapping in via a smartphone, or by checking out the LED screen on the microwave’s door. You can watch a promotional video of the microwave in action after the break.
