Invention Makes Pizza In 3 Minutes by Claudio Torghele

Claudio Torghele Pizza Invention

Claudio Torghele Let's Pizza Invention

You know what I love? Pizza. You know what I love even more? A fresh pizza cooked in 3 minutes. That’s what Claudio Torghele invented Let’s Pizza machine that has fullfilled my life long dream.

The Let’s Pizza machine makes pizza by beating flour and water into dough and then stretching it to round fit. It then adds all the necessary ingredients: tomato sauce, toppings like cheese, vegetables, ham, etc. The oven uses infrared to cook it. Surprisingly, the cost is just short $5.

Technology is getting closer to the Star Trek (Next Generation) Instant Food Device on board the ship. I look forward to the 100 year old aged wine to 1 minute invention too.

4-port USB hub connects to your network

March 27th, 2009 No comments

Sometimes, even I make mistakes.  I made a serious mistake not buying a wireless printer when I had to replace mine not too long ago and I’ve been regretting it ever since.  Well rather than doing the old Office Space dance on the bugger, I’ve decided to get this:

guip204_2That, my friends, is a 4-port USB hub from IOGear.  No big deal right?  Well this particular hub has a network port that allows you to share the plugged in devices on your network.  So now I can plug my printer into my network and I can make my huge collection of porn…err…I mean poems available to any computer in my house.  Awesome.

Garage in the sky

March 26th, 2009 1 comment

You know, it always impresses me when people come up with new ways to separate me from my hordes of cash.  This building, though, has found the ticket to my safe.

skygarageThat, my friends, is a garage.  And not just any garage, but a garage in your luxury condo.  This magnificent bling abode is 200 Eleventh Avenue in New York City (where else?).  Each residence in the building has its own garage.  You access your garage via the ground floor by driving into a car elevator, which gently lifts you and your car up to your personal garage, whereupon you back out into your parking space, step out of the car, enter your home, and are greeted by your wife/mistress/sugarbaby.  The animation of how this system works is awesome and definately should be checked out.

solCHAT untangles your car just a little bit.

March 25th, 2009 No comments

I don’t know about you but my car is a mass of wires.  I’ve got power cords for my iPhone, my GPS, and (for really long trips) a couple headrest monitors connected to a DVD player.  That’s a lot of stuff plugged into cigarette lighters jacks.  Thank god I don’t smoke, cause I really need the plugs.  And while I like wireless Bluetooth headsets, they’re yet another thing I gotta have a power cord for just in case I run out of charge while chatting with my supermodel actress “friend” from Sweden.  Well Scosche has just announced their solCHAT to help me deal with that last problem.

43612926600x400cbhsol_backThe solCHAT is a solar powered Bluetooth speakerphone.  So you throw this little puppy on the dash, connect it to your iPhone or Bluetooth capable handset, and head off into the sunrise talking away.

Now my supermodel friend has said that the wind noise when I’m driving topdown in my Aston Martin makes it difficult to hear my melodious voice, but that’s a small price to pay for having one less thing to plug in.

Should be available soon.
