Living a more environmentally responsible life is all well and good, but in practice the accessibility of such a lifestyle will improve drastically once products like the Electrolux EMS Cooker hit the market.
This entry was another semi-finalist in the Electrolux Design Lab 2011 competition -- and for a very good reason. Designer Simona Hruskova of the Czech Republic conceived this cuff-shaped hot-plate so that the user can wear it around on his wrist, harnessing the heat emitted from his body for later use for cooking. After sufficient time, the device will have accumulated enough kinetic energy to warm a cup of coffee. If the bracelet form is not conducive to preparing food and drinks in larger dishes, the Electrolux EMS Cooker can be rolled out into a flat heating pad.
