According to this article on Design Taxi, University of Pennsylvania students have hacked a microwave so it plays YouTube videos while warming up your meals.
µWave has a tablet in place of the screen, which fetches random YouTube videos that are of the same duration as your food's cook time.
The hacked microwave would also tweet users that have visited, and send texts to its users when their food is done cooking.
