Behold- the Beanzawave- a tiny, USB powered microwave. It’s the smallest microwave I’ve ever seen. It is made by Heinz specifically to heat their single-serve foodstuffs. The unit is battery operated, and can be charged by USB and wall outlets.
Why does this bother me?
First off, I don’t trust microwaves anyway. I’d rather not be standing next to my microwave at home, and that thing didn’t have to be made ultra-small and portable; they had plenty of room to add user protection to it. Maybe I’m just being overly worried about stuff… it seems to be something I do these days.
My next concern is for the person who is too lazy to go to the kitchen or leave their car top microwave their chef Boyardee. (on a side note- did you know that chef Boyardee was an actual person?) Back on topic- microwaves are nearly everywhere in the city… just about every convenience store, grocery store and hotel has them. I’m sure if you were to pop in to the Riviera hotel , they’d let you use their microwave for a few seconds.
I guess if you were camping (or hunting?) , then this might come in handy. I also get that some people work and eat at the same time… if the overworking doesn’t kill them, than maybe the microwave radiation and junk food will. One situation where this would be ideal: a stakeout.
Leave it to Japan to come up with a USB powered cigarette that doesn’t actually contain tobacco. Supposedly it produces some sort of smoke, but most likely the aromatherapeutic kind that any Mesothelioma lawyer worth his salt would despise. The product page is completely useless as well:
How is the Ministry of aerosol charging is complete in itself and very easy to set the cartridge.The only draw suction from the mouth, the pump mechanism of the weak solution mist through the mouth and draw air sensors automatically. Nicotine, tar will not be detrimental to health that are not recommended to go to when I quit smoking.
Oh yeah, thanks for clearing that up for me! Sheesh. I think I’ll pass on your new-age electronic smoking device, thank-you-very-much.
Somehow, this robot is intended to help the less fortunate… how a flaming, torso-less cart pushing robot does that is beyond me… Unless the idea is to scare the homeless into actually working for a living. I know that it would work on me!
