USB Microwave Concept Still Falls Short

usb-microwave1

By Chris Scott Barr

As you can imagine, I spend a lot of time at my desk. So much in fact, that there is a mini fridge withing rolling distance of my chair. It’s nice to be able to grab a drink without breaking my flow of concentration. Of course prepping some food still means going downstairs and taking care of it. What I want is something I can set on my desk that will warm up my food.

Here is yet another desktop microwave concept. Why are there so many concepts without an actual product being on the shelves? It’s like the designers enjoy teasing us. Anywho, this one is also USB-powered (which makes me wonder at its effectiveness) and only appears to heat up special meals. Sure, the means would come with a RFID-equipped plastic utensil that programmed the time into the microwave, but it won’t cook my Spaghetti-o’s. Is that really too much to ask?

    In my computer room, I have this thing called a …[wait for it]…power socket. It like a magical hole in the wall that allows me to attach electrical items like an electric kettle for hot beverages and even toaster ovens! The best part is that it is not near my computer where I may accidentally burn my self. A magical electric powering hole in wall is not a mere concept :)
