Inventor Colin Furze is back at it again, and this time, he's created "Play-O-Wave", or in other words, a functional microwave game console. In the test, he plays games loaded directly onto a controller via a component connection, but in reality, you could hook up a real game console, or just enjoy your favorite television shows, using the display. Yes, it can still cook food while you play games, and the door had to be made slightly thicker for things to function properly, but as you can see, the project was well worth the time.

Matthew Riese has always been fond of the DeLorean, but wanted to create a model like no other.
