Heinz eyes USB-powered microwave for desk drones


If there’s one thing I’ve always wanted as a “professional” blogger, it’s a tiny $160 USB powered microwave for cooking beans next to my computer. Since no company’s had the balls to — helllloooo, Heinz. What have we here?

Please witness the Beanzawave, currently in prototype form from Heinz. It’d cost roughly $160 or so to manufacture but that price would come down as component costs fell. It’s in development in the UK and Heinz says that it’ll consider selling the thing if consumers want it badly enough.

Wow, howsabout that? A company checking with consumers first before releasing a potentially dumb (or awesome?) product. How uncharacteristically responsible.
