Food processor

A design idea could give new meaning to frying your laptop. An entry in Electrolux’s contest for new design concepts combines the cooking power of an induction burner with a computer. The Electrolux Laptop Kitchen looks like a laptop, and includes a touchscreen with a database of recipes. The spot where you’d normally find the keyboard is the burner. There’s also a webcam to send video of your dinner to your hungry friends. See it all here.

It’s just a concept – you can’t run out and buy it. But I can hear the cries from geek-cooks everywhere. I hope it’s resistant to Mountain Dew.
