London, June 9 (ANI): Computer professionals may not have to leave their screens to fill their stomachs, thanks to a British scientist who has developed the world's smallest microwave for those too busy to leave their PCs.
Gordon Andrews, of the UK's Microwave Technologies Association, has revealed the 71/2in Beanzawave plugs into a computer, something that makes it ideal for deskbound types or travellers with a laptop.
He says that the mini microwave heats a yogurt pot-sized portion of beans in 60 seconds, runs off battery or mains with onscreen controls operated though the keyboard.
According to him, a decision to create the teacup-sized device was taken after research by food giant Heinz found that millions of workers skip meals.
"The plan was to make it mobile so it could be used in any environment. You just scroll to control what you want to do," the Daily Express quoted him as saying.
If there is enough interest, it will be rolled out in high street stores for around 100 pounds. (ANI)
