A kitchen for the space station

Fully equipped kitchen in a sphere

Uncrate

'Cone of Silence'

We really can't think of any practical use for a kitchen contained in a sphere, but that would never stop us from writing about it here at Crave (if anything, it would encourage us). Besides, this isn't just one of those gee-whiz gadgets that hides a fridge in a kitchen table .

We're talking the full deal, according to Uncrate, where "the bottom half is made of carbon fiber and sports a double sink, four burners, three bottle coolers, a retractable table and trolleys." All it needs is a bot to do the dishes .

The top half, however, is the best part to us. In addition to serving as a lamp when closed, the dome of the "Sheer Kitchen" looks like a modern version of the "Cone of Silence."
