Social Networking in the Home

Social networking sites are bigger than ever (check out our Facebook page!), and once again our addiction to them has inspired items for the home. This time, I think they may have gone too far, but I’ll let you be the judge.


The first is the Share Trash Can.  Imagine throwing out your garbage with the same enthusiasm you hit that share button with!  There’s even an LED counter that keeps track of the number of times you step on the foot petal.  Now if only this could upload event details to Facebook so people would know what I was throwing in the garbage (no, not serious).


While I think this next item is a little much, I can’t help but think it’s also kind of cool.  You know those three annoying minutes that you stare at your microwave waiting for your soup/leftovers/hot pocket ?  Never again will you spend them bored.  Though it’s only a concept, the inventor of the CastOven has created the perfect synthesis of a microwave and YouTube. Yup, You Tube.   When you put your lunch inside and set the timer, the CastOven instantly finds a random YouTube clip approximately the same length of time your food will take and plays it on the screen.  Crazy or genius?
