This desktop microwave oven concept heats ready meals at the users desk, giving them as much time as possible to concentrate on their work.
An exploded view of the microwave, displaying the necessary internal components.
The microwave is powered through a C8 port connected to the mains and controlled through a computer application connected via USB.
To enhance ease of use Radio Frequency Identification is integrated into the product to allow the oven to recognise an inserted meal. Adhesive RFID tags are located on the end of the packaged plastic fork – this contains information on the meal. With a swipe through the products built in scanner the oven recognises the meal and operates at the appropriate time and heat.
