You can try to bring technology and innovation to the kitchen in all sorts of cheap looking gimmicky ways (LCD on a fridge or motorized shelves, anyone?), but the Kuppersbusch Electric Honeycomb Cooktop is in a class all on its own. This gorgeous cooking apparatus actually consists of seven interlocking glass ceramic hexagon tiles, six of which are heating elements. They’re mounted flush against your counter for a seamless appearance and can be arranged in up to 28 different layouts to accommodate even your most bizarre cooking needs. The seventh hexagon is a touch activated control panel.
As you might imagine, these things aren’t cheap, though not quite as heart attack inducing as you might have thought; the higher end model comes in at $1,750.
