As any good adventurer knows, if you’re trekking out into the wilderness, you need to bring an ax. You know… for firewood and zombie hunting and stuff. But what if you want to make pizza out in the woods? What will you use to slice it up? Can’t use your bare hands–that’s just barbaric, sir.

Well, lucky for you, hypothetical pizza-loving woodsman, you can now use this pizza ax when you’re out in the forest. It looks like an ax, but you can’t cut trees with it. Only pizza. Please remember that.

Remember Marvin, the often paranoid and/or depressed robot from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy? Would you love to have your own version help you around the kitchen? Well, now you can! Sort of. Addicted Products came up with a toaster, named Brad, that monitors how much attention it gets from its owner. If it doesn’t feel like it’s being loved enough, well, it’ll literally pack up and hit the bricks–in other words, Brad will actively search for another owner.

If you haven’t had the pleasure of trying one of Roy Choi’s Korean tacos, you’re definitely missing out. Choi is all about delicious street food that’s served quickly and efficiently, which explains why he’s testing out Google Glass to see if it might make things easier in the kitchen.

In this short demonstration video, Choi shows the audience how Google Glass can be used to share recipe tutorials, look up culinary info and even call Mom. All of that digital power can help cooks come up with new dishes too… like an Irish burrito filled with kimchi.

Choi is big on Google Glass and he thinks it can really revolutionize the restaurant industry. Speaking to Fast Company he notes: “I think the ergonomics can be improved a bit, but once they are then I can see it in professional kitchens. Imagine no more tickets and each cook working from their own Glass? Dopeness.”

Oreorobot copy

What’s the pinnacle of man’s scientific achievement? Cloning? Splitting the atom? Rubbing two sticks together really fast so you can make fire? Nope. All of those meaningless footnotes in history are nothing when compared to greatest invention mankind ever dreamed up: the Oreo-making robot.

It’s genius, I tell you. Genius.

The robot is basically a cross-experiment between 3D printing and robot manufacturing. It can also make custom Oreos. It’s not for sale, but boy do I want one.

Check out the robot in action after the break…

keurig

Keurig, the single-serve coffee maker, is fast, simple and pretty effective when it comes to whipping up a quick cup of joe. Recently the Keurig parent company, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, has been faced with a challenge. Their patent on K-Cups expired in 2012, after which unlicensed competitors began producing their own versions of the cartridges and passing the savings on to the consumer.

Naturally, Green Mountain has been looking for ways to earn back that lost revenue. According to Techdirt, Green Mountain confirmed in an earnings call that their newest generation of Keurig 2.0 brewers will feature an interactive reader that will only recognize Keurig-licensed cups that utilize a particular marking.

That means customers will have less choice so, in order to stay competitive, these new cups will come with a few new features. There will be larger serving sizes (enough to brew an entire pot), for one, and Green Mountain has partnered with Coca-Cola with plans to release to a cold-brewing system later on this year.
