Inventor and lunatic Colin Furze is back with another deadly and/or amazing and/or marginally useful homemade contraption that’s designed to help you pass the time and keep an eye on your pizza rolls. Behold, the Play-o-Wave gaming microwave. [click to continue…]

The Sobro Coffee Table is attempting to reinvent the coffee table in much the same way as the Coolest Cooler attempted to do with coolers. That is to say, it is packed with useful functionality, like Bluetooth speakers, LED lights, charging ports, touch control and even a refrigerated drawer. [click to continue…]

As part of a new merchandise store, Hidden Valley has introduced a “Ranch Out” fountain that will either baffle or delight – depending on your feelings about salad dressing. [click to continue…]

If you enjoy relatively pointless and time-consuming customizations, then you’ll love the following project. YouTuber Tim Gremalm didn’t like his microwave buzzer, so he swapped it for the Windows XP startup sound. Personally, I think erotic moaning sounds would have been hilarious and totally worth it, but to each his own. See it in action below (the relevant bit starts 30 seconds in). [click to continue…]

The easiest way to repackage even the most mundane objects for the 21st century is by slapping a USB charger on it. Case in point, this breadbasket by Sister Schubert’s.

The “Basket of Warmth” is more than just a basket with a device charger, however—it will also keep bread warm. Details on its inner workings haven’t been released, but it is suggested that the heat is derived from the charging process itself.

The basket is intended to take mobile devices away from people at the dinner table so they can bond with other humans instead of a screen – something that would come in especially handy (or disastrous) with Thanksgiving around the corner. However, at this point the basket is merely a prototype, and there’s no word on when (or if) it will eventually hit store shelves. Check out an additional pic below. [click to continue…]

So why did Twitch streamer Rudeism decide to play Overwatch with a microwave oven? Who knows. Who cares? These days, you just need to roll with the weirdness.

While playing Overwatch with a kitchen appliance might seem a bit random, I will say that Rudeism’s overall inventiveness is pretty entertaining. And if he can figure out how to play Battlefield 1 with a blender, well, then he’s got a fan for life. Watch the video below (autoplay). [click to continue…]

Your days of heating up lunch in a breakroom microwave or packing cold lunches on the jobsite may soon be numbered thanks to this “HeatsBox” from Swiss start-up Faitron.

The portable lunchbox utilizes an 85 watt oven-type heater to gradually warm your food over a 15 minute period. It is also equipped with a self-cleaning system like a traditional oven and can be powered up via USB.

As awesome as all of this sounds, some mysteries about the product remain, such as when it will be available, how much it will cost, and how it will prevent your food from spoiling while it is waiting to be eaten. If you want answers, you can sign up for the manufacturer’s mailing list here.

The future of cookie baking is finally here: say hello to the CHiP Smart Cookie Oven. It functions like a Wi-Fi-enabled Keurig for cookies. Yes, you read that right.

All you need to do is scan the QR code on each cookie dough pod (which contains enough dough for one cookie) with the CHiP app and it will send baking instructions to the oven. CHiP uses hot air and convection fan to bake a batch of four cookies (max) in around ten minutes. Since the oven is Wi-Fi enabled, the oven will send baking notifications about your cookies straight to your phone. Because that’s information you NEED RIGHT NOW.

The CHiP will run for about $249 at retail but can be had for $99 during the Kickstarter campaign. A pod subscription will run roughly 88 cents to $2 each.

I mean, I like cookies as much as the next guy but…come on. However, if the idea of an Easy Bake Oven for adults sounds appealing to you, check out the video below to learn more. [click to continue…]

Darth Vader can whip up a soup like nobody’s business. He also makes this amazing pudding using 4 Hass avocados, 8 tablespoons of Hershey’s 100% cacao unsweetened cocoa, 8 tablespoons of maple syrup, 1 cup of almond milk and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Avocado pudding! Who knew?

At any rate, this Lightsaber Immersion Blender is his secret weapon in the kitchen. It features a 120 V/300 W motor and variable speeds for $50.
