Combo TV-microwave to feed addiction

Another sign of the decline of civilization.

Talk about evolution. A decade ago the iconic appliance of digital age was the Internet toaster; now say hello to the microwave TV.

Thankfully, no one seems to be viewing this latest invention as the ultimate device in technological convergence--quite the opposite, actually. But that hasn't stopped Holland Electro Wave TV from debuting its Frankenstein creation at the IFA trade show in Berlin. The concept is rather silly, if you ask us: The "Wave," according to Gizmag, is basically a microwave oven with an LCD built into the door.

Not only does it cost about $680, which is too much, but it's impractical to boot. How, for instance, can you be sure that last night's pizza isn't blowing up inside while you're aborbed in Dancing with the Stars ? Then again, in an era when refrigerator TVs and waterproof remotes are all the rage, perhaps this idea isn't so dumb after all.
