Gear | Video
An asteroid with a diameter of 500 km. Destination: The Pacific Ocean. The impact peels the 10 km crust off the surface. The shockwave travels at hypersonic speeds. Debris is blasted across into low Earth orbit, and returns to destroy the surface of the Earth. The firestorm encircles the Earth, vaporizing all life in its way. Within one day, the surface of the Earth is uninhabitable. The evidence shows that this has happened at least six times in Earth's history.

The Smart Countertop Grill

The Smart Countertop Grill
Home | Appliance
It kind of looks like a George Foreman grill, but that’s where the similarities end. See, the Cinder is a smart countertop grill. For one, it features a host of sensors that keep track of the heat generated by the non-stick cooking surfaces to within a quarter of a degree Fahrenheit, up to its surface-searing maximum of 550F. This, along with complex control algorithms, allows it to automate the entire cooking process. You simply toss your steak in there (the device automatically measures its thickness), launch an app on your phone and point to how you’d like it cooked. Cinder does the rest. Even better, it gives you an estimate to how long it’ll be before it’s ready so you don’t even have to stick around as it does its thing. Oh, and if you’re not ready when the timer runs out? No problem, Cinder can hold the steak at the perfect temperature for up to two hours! It’s the convenience of sous-vide cooking, with none of the bagging, water-soaking annoyances.  The company is taking pre-orders now for $500 with delivery in 2016!
