Microwave TV

Just because they look similar

A microwave, with an LCD television replacing the normal glass window. Ideally this would be tuned to a channel showing very short programmes.

When you want to look at your food, you can switch the display to the output from the in-microwave webcam which will show your Ready Meal for One, only slightly bigger, and with better colour.

       I wonder if the microwaves would disrupt the LCD display?   

       As for the webcam, I personally wouldn't want all that melted plastic and the sparks generated from the metallic components in the cam.   

       But interesting thought! +

       sitting in front of a microondas is bad for you. Didnt your madre tell you anything?

       Centauri suggested this on my old (now deleted) shifting mesh microwave window idea.

       [v0rtexx] - mmm, yes, I had envisaged a non-exploding, microwave-safe webcam.
If the microwaves did disrupt the display, it could be used to show where the 'hotspots' of microwave radiation are.

       take a few grapes, slice them in half 99% but leave the two halves connected by a small piece of grape-skin, turn out the lights, and put them in the microwave ... i have no idea why they burst into flames, but they do...

       I never heard that, but I heard if you puncture a small hole in one end of a grape, and set it on a microwave tray that was oiled to make it slippery, and turn on the microwave, that the grape jet-propels across the tray.
