Heinz, an US-based food company has created the world smallest microwave, measuring just 150mm x 160mm x 190mm. The microwave, Beanzawave, is so compact to work with the USB port of your computer and offer a solution to “food at your desk” or “on the go”.
Beanzawave is run by USB and can cook a tiny snack sized meal or warm a beverage. It actually doesn’t use microwaves to heat up the food because the power supplied from the USB is not enought to generate microwaves.
Instead, Beazawaze uses the same sort of waves used for cellular telephones (which should give everyone pause considering we all have a phone next to our ears every day) to generate the heat needed to cook or warm up the food or drink.
Beanzawave is still under prototype. The Beanzawave was developed by Gama Microwave Technology in association with Heinz which hopes to pair it with their new snack food line known as “Snap Pots”.
The cost of Beanzawave is projected to be about $150, which is quite pricy if compared to an ordinary microwave.
