Warning: Boring, practical idea ahead

This is a microwave oven built with the interior dimensions matching a fully popped bag of popcorn. A new, desktop sized mini-microwave made for office use.

In my office, we have a huge microwave (1000w) that we use exclusively for popcorn and to make hot water in mugs. It takes up way too much room and energy. This invention of mine is small enough to put on your desk. It uses less electricity. Compact components include miniaturized 350 watt magnetron, stirring assembly and power supply. All this in a package sized similar to a 2 slice toaster.

       Who boned this? This would be cool if it could be done.   

       (Would also be just right for heating up coffee.)

       Love the linkage, but those are still pretty big. Mine is designed to sit on your desk, in the office. In other words, look attractive and perform flawlessly. Not something most microwaves do.

       And yea, why would you bone this? I don't really care that this is getting boned, just confused. I don't understand. Please, boners, if you come back to this, explain.
