What is “W”?
“W” is a science fiction design concept of a high-end microwave that comes from the not-too-distant future.
What does the microwave of the future look like?
The W uses a revolutionary user interface to tell the hungry user everything he or she would like to know about a food item that is placed in the microwave. No more buttons or dials on the microwave, W gets rid of these nuisances and will automatically calculate the optimal time required to heat or cook food to perfection!
The W can access the internet to give the user recipes and calorie information about a food item, video cooking guides and more!
Safety is our top concern–so we’ve designed W to identify materials that are not microwave safe. If the item placed in the microwave is unsafe, our device will refuse to cook until the object is taken out.
