Kaya – Future Microwave Oven Concept

I’m not a cook, but I know what the food should be like for me to eat. I know it shouldn’t be burned or it should be defrosted. I just don’t know exactly how long it should be cooked. I wish there were a microwave oven like this that ‘shows” me what the food will be like after cooking.


But first, I wish a microwave oven was movable so that it could get close to the table when necessary.


Put a dish in it and this oven tells what kinds of foods are in it.


Adjust the ‘look’ of the food displayed on the glass by dragging the button. You can control the cooking time while looking at what it will be like after cooking the adjusted length of time. You’ll know exactly when it boils or burns.


Inspired by a dome tray when I was watching Ratatouille.

Teko

Happy new year! Sorry for the slow update. I’ve been really sick for more than a week.
Teko is a Japanese word for “lever”. A small lever on the chopstick works as a chopstick stand so that the front end doesn’t touch the table. Also, it helps the chopsticks stick to each other. (Is this already used somewhere?)

Afraid of directly looking at your weight? Why don’t you hide with your foot and slowly reveal it?

Afraid your measured weight being seen by someone else? Don’t worry. It can be seen only from above.

No More “Which Cup Is Mine?”

Inspired by Jaehyung Hong’s great idea of personalizing a paper cup.
You create your own handle by simply cutting out along dotted lines. You’ll never forget your own design.
