COOK­ING UP EN­TER­TAIN­MENT

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - BIT RATE -

For all those who twid­dle their thumbs wait­ing for the mi­crowave oven to ping when its done, here is what four young ty­ros built in just 40 hours at the Univer­sity of Penn­syl­va­nia. The mwave (the Greek let­ter Mu is a sym­bol for ‘mi­cro’) is a mod­i­fied West­ing­house oven that plays Youtube videos of the same du­ra­tion as your food’s cook­ing time. When the cook­ing is through, it sends an SMS to your smart­phone. It also has its own Twit­ter ac­count to tweet about its use. But don’t rush to the mar­ket just yet. It is not com­mer­cially avail­able. It was only cre­ated by the stu­dents for the univer­sity’s Pen­napps hackathon.
