How Last Night’s Dinner Could Be Tomorrow’s Microwave

Your future kitchen?

And you thought your stainless-steel milk frother was futuristic. Grist has a look at kitchens from Philips Design’s "Microbial Home," where food waste turns into compost and cooking gas, and "the peelings from a potato might provide the heat to cook the potato and the fertilizer to grow more potatoes." There’s also a "larder," a beehive, and an evaporative cooling unit (a.k.a. fridge) built into the table. Well, an ecofreak can dream. [Grist]
