Kitchen Contraption Cooks Potatoes with Head Energy

1f1ff688357fc88d5218afbf44c71abc.jpg

Modern Mechanix found from the February, 1930 issue of Modern Mechanics. According to 1930's scientists, the human body produces enough heat to cook potatoes as long as you put this kitchen contraption on your head.

Scientists have learned that our bodies are living machines of the combustion type in which the burning of fuel (food) is accompanied by the consumption of oxygen, liberation of heat energy and production of carbon dioxide as is the case in all combustion engines. Scientists find that the heat from a single person, if properly focussed, would be sufficient to cook potatoes.

Maybe they'll call you Mr. or Mrs. Potato head but we expect the yummy mashed results will be worth the burn.

c7657e9427c807567484e1630287ac0d.jpg

Jell-O's Temptations dessert is being marketed to adults and this vending machine has built-in face recognition to check the age of anyone who approaches so if you're a kid - it says, "NO PUDDING FOR YOU!" We're not sure what is says but first developed by Intel, the dispenser uses facial data, like the size of your eyes and their distance apart, to figure out how old you are.The device does not take or store photos, but of course does give out pudding.

Holiday Gift Pick: La Crosse Atomic Digital Wall Clock with Indoor Temperature

61h+FqoUsfL._AA1000_.jpg

This Atomic Digital Wall Clock with Indoor Temperature features self-setting time and date. The clock automatically updates for seasonal time changes where applicable, and the clock with alarm and snooze features time with seconds. It also displays time, date, day, temp on one screen, and the clock can be wall hanging or free standing. We love a good kitchen clock, and we think having the temperature in the kitchen is also key - too hot or too cold can make for a great or bad baking day.

Holiday Gift Pick: Inflatable Turkey Saves Cooking Time

51sk+IPWZGL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

If you're looking to save on cooking time, and you think you're turkey cooking efforts could be easier then this Inflatable Turkey looks so delicious you can almost smell the stuffing when you blow it up and impress your guests. Keep the carving knives away, because this bird is strictly for show and made of hot air (so you'll need to serve something else). It will fit right on the table carving plate as well while you cook a real bird.

The Fresh Traveler by Arian Brekveld allows you to keep your cereal separate from your liquids like milk or yogurt. We love the design, and also think this would work great for coffee and a little snack in the bottom - some chocolate kibble?
