USB-Powered Beans Microwave: What USB Was Created For

Sometimes, when you're sitting at your desk, all you want are some piping-hot baked beans. Hey, we all know it, why not admit it? That's why Heinz is working on a USB beans microwave.

No, this isn't a joke. The Beanzawave—yes, Beanzawave—is billed as the world's smallest microwave, measuring just 18.8cm tall by 6.6cm wide and 15cm deep. It's perfect for desktop bean cookery, and Heinz is even dabbling in Lithium Ion batteries for on the go beans heating. Amazing.

The whole shebang should be released for am ere $US160 if Heinz ever does release it, which it'll do if consumer feedback is positive. Consider us on board, Heinz. [ via Fast Company]
