I have a few friends who could immensely benefit from the Beyond Microwave Oven from Smart Home. Using a bardcode scanner, this micro can automatically adjust cooking times and temperatures. It features 4000 preprogrammed items and based on what you scan, it analyzes the food and estimates appropriate settings based on what information the barcode gives it. As Popgadget points out, this would be useless for experimentation or leftovers, but for $150, it’s not ridiculously priced or anything. Not to mention it does look nice and stylish.
