$300. What does it do? Well creates pancake designs within seconds of any type of design that you like, your own creative custom type or you can get one from the template. And the last one is a computer that cooks for you. A company by the name of June has created the oven with cameras that will detect exactly what you’re cooking. It’ll set the right temperature and time so that you can set it and forget it. The price on this one is about $1,500.

Ponder this idea. How about using mushrooms instead of wood for building your next home? Well a company by the name of Ecovative from New York City is doing just that. Ecovative would create an eco-friendly material that can be pressed then cut and we have the strength of conventional wood products. Now that you’re using mushrooms to build your next home, how about splurging on self-cleaning paint? A group of UCL researchers say that the new paint creates a more resilient surface that is resistant to everyday wear and tear. And lastly how about generating electricity every time you walk through your own home? A company by the name of Pavegen is doing just that.

Cardio will no longer be work but a fulfilling entertainment experience where you can lose those pesky 10 pounds.
