Castoven: A Microwave Oven that Plays YouTube Videos

There have been many expensive gadgets which serve really no great purpose. One such is the cool-looking Castoven, which is a highly dramatized and mystified microwave oven which lets you watch YouTube videos while heating food. It was developed by 2 researchers from Keio University.

It is a conventional microwave but with a 10.4 inch LCD screen, which lets you watch YouTube videos. The Microwave also comes with speakers and it can be connected to Mac and perhaps to a Windows computer as well. The idea is to keep you entertained when the food gets cooked. If the food needs 3:30 minutes to be ready, it pulls a video from YouTube of that duration and it plays till the food gets cooked.

Sounds like a really lame thing to me, and moreover, if you stood in front of the microwave watching videos every time you wanted food heated or cooked, you might develop serious fertility-related issues. It is not available for sale yet, but I doubt it would be a great success anyway. It is strange that researchers from one of the best Universities in Japan had to think of such a lame idea for their paper.

  • This is getting to be a bit more subjective, but I much prefer in vitro ferilization than ICSI. The results and success stories speak for themselves. You can quickly see the amazement on patients faces from happy parents or couples. Clicking on one of those picues wll reveal a place of enjoyment and happiness, heaven if you will . You can tell all of your friends who were not listening to you, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
