Cook a pizza pocket and watch YouTube all at the same time

So I decide to cook something in my microwave that takes 4:52 to cook and look, Chocolate Rain by Tay Zonday comes up on the screen. Life is good.

The CastOver developed by researchers at Keio University in Japan features a 10.4 inch screen instead of a window on your microwave.

It runs Adobe Air and will grab videos from your internet and with the built in intelligence, pulls videos close to or exactly the length of the time you put on the microwave.

Slowly our kitchen appliances are turning into quite the smart technology. I can see the day where we put food in our microwave in the morning, and with our cell phones, send a signal to turn it on so your food is ready as soon as you step foot in the door.

Would you trust something like this with an oven?
