The Week In Design: A Cobbled-Together Incubator and a Knitting Clock

The Web is teeming with the unrealized ideas of both students and established designers who set out to produce astonishing renderings and prototypes for unusual products. Unfortunately, due to the lack of time, money, or technology, many of those products never progress from the planning stages to the mass market. But that doesn't mean we can't salivate over them, nevertheless. While you've...

The Week in Design: Buckminster Fuller Headphones and Algorithmic Chairs

The Web is teeming with the unrealized ideas of both students and established designers who set out to produce astonishing renderings and prototypes for unusual products. Unfortunately, due to the lack of time, money, or technology, many of those products never move from the planning stages to the mass market. But that doesn't mean we can't salivate over their creations, nevertheless. The good...

Death-Defying, High-Tech Cooking With Chefs Dave Arnold and Nils Norén

Last week we introduced you to Chefs Dave Arnold and Nils Norén, the superhero duo of high-tech culinary artistry that coauthor the brilliant Cooking Issues blog. But that was only a taste, so to speak, of the epic (and, at times, dangerous) demo that the chefs gave us at the French Culinary Institute a few weeks back. In the video after the break, watch through until the end, when...

High-Tech Cooking: The Mad Genius of Chefs Dave Arnold and Nils Norén

Cooking is its own special kind of alchemy, and chefs Nils Norén and Dave Arnold -- who write the brilliant Cooking Issues blog -- make an art of blending technology and science with delectable comestibles. How about some habanero-flavored vodka, or ice cream that you can fry? Hell to the yes. We had a chance to sit down with Dave and Nils at the acclaimed French Culinary Institute...

'America's Test Kitchen' Rates Blenders With Ridiculous Features

In the market for a new blender? The nerds at 'America's Test Kitchen' have rated some wacky models with reversible action and double blades. (See the video after the break.) Their consensus: polycarbonate plastic containers and powerful motors make for the best blenders (duh). But, while ATK recoils at the prospect of spending more than $100, we still have our eyes set on a gorgeous,...

A History of Modern Kitchen Design, On View at MoMA

MoMA will soon exhibit a history of modern food prep called 'Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen.' FastCoDesign takes a look at this survey, spanning the last century of Western cookery -- from the architecture of the kitchen itself to the introduction of newer and stranger gadgets, like Chemex coffee pots and Braun's blenders, designed by the nonpareil Dieter Rams....

Man Mounts iPad in His Kitchen Cabinet Door

Move over, Paula Deen; the iPad is coming to the kitchen. According to The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW), reader Alan Daly recently installed an iPad in the door of his kitchen cabinet. In case something went wrong, Daly bought a spare door for this experiment. He used a jigsaw to cut out a square hole, smoothed the edges with a Dremel and cut two pieces of wood to secure the iPad in place....

The Microwave: Friend or Foe?

Share Microwaves! According to statistics, almost all of us has one. In fact, Americans used their microwaves to cook 47 billion meals last year, which is roughly 1.1 meals-per-household every day. Next to televisions, computers and cell phones, microwave ovens may be one of the most often-used devices in the country -- and they don't even connect to Twitter (although this one has YouTube). ...

Epicurious for iPad: Now We Totally Understand This '3rd Device' Rhetoric

Readers, we have a confession to make. This past weekend, we went out, like the giant nerds that we are, and got ourselves an iPad. And, after spending some time with it, we had a chance to write down both our good words and gripes with the device. But we're starting to rethink the way we ought to critique this "magical and revolutionary" product. Yes, we've had netbooks and tablet PCs and...

Bodum Brings Sottsass's Memphis Kettle to Life 24 Years Later

For design aficionados, the name "Memphis" is more likely to evoke the influential '80s Italian design movement than it is the home of rock 'n' roll. For those who missed the movement's heyday, Danish kitchenware company Bodum will be releasing a kettle originally designed by Memphis founder Ettore Sottsass. Sottsass designed the kettle in 1986, but, due to manufacturing problems, it never went...

8 Essential Kitchen Gadgets

Share Several of us Switched writers live in New York, where kitchen space is a precious resource. But despite the fact that we cook in spaces the size of coat closets, we like to prepare dishes that make our friends jealous and our significant others fearful of losing us. [Ed. note: Matt is speaking for himself. We rely on him to feed us. Seriously.] And, while no kitchen appliance will ever...

Chefs Cooking Up Controversy on the Web

According to The New York Times, some New York City chefs are using Twitter as more than just a marketing tool. Angry chefs are feuding with one another, striking back against bloggers and food critics, and even venting about the rigors of their job. It's a surprising trend, as the restaurant community is known for being tight-lipped. Joe Dobias, owner and chef at JoeDoe in the East Village,...

Augmented Reality Kitchen Takes Us 'Back to the Future'

Recall with us, if you will, 'Back To the Future Part II,' in which Marty McFly leaves 1985 (25 years ago!), and shoots through time and space to arrive in 2015. It's sort of unnerving when you realize that's only five years from now. And just think about how many of the movie's predictions have already come true: from TV glasses to video conferencing to an MLB team in Miami. We have to give...

Automatic Food 'Printer' Can Only Make Us Fatter, Lazier, Happier

We've seen food and printers meet before with varying results (depending on how crisp you like your toast). But we've never seen anything quite like this new project from a couple of MIT students. Trust us, this printer isn't meant for the office. According to Inhabitat, the Cornucopia will "print" and cook 3-D versions of your favorite dishes. Think meals-ready-to-eat, but for the hip, digital...

Man Discovers His Stolen Appliances on eBay

We'll never figure out why thieves think eBay is a good place to sell stolen goods. On the online auction site, these dumb criminals not only have to watch out for the cops, but also for the angry victims trolling the Web for their stuff. According to the Telegraph, a British man whose house was ransacked and relieved of goods valued at $13,000, tracked down the perpetrator when he noticed...
