innovation strikes in car microwave now available

According to the Daily Mail, you can now buy a microwave that plugs in to your car’s 12v socket. Because you need that hot pocket when you’re commuting. Because talking on your cell phone while driving is only so distracting. And because that cell phone only delivers minimal electromagnetic radiation risk. The $190 appliance made by Maplin Electronics is small enough to stash in the boot of car, features a robust steel construction with heavy duty handle and is operated by a LED touchscreen. According to a company rep, “you no longer have to worry about searching for places to eat as the microwave ensures you can plan your day as you want to and eat when you’re hungry. It gives you the flexibility and freedom to enjoy hot food wherever and whenever you wish.” Be still my fat-clogged, barely-beating heart.
