  This state of the art Microwave oven can do the following: When you put food in it will quickly identify it and cook it for you with a time that will leave the food perfect (not too cold or hot). It uses cameras that create a 3D image of the food and sensors that can penetrate the food to see what's inside. After identifying the food the microwave will offer a time that the micro thinks is appropriate or a custom time that the user can input (touchscreen). Also the micro can detect stuff that's not food and shouldn't even be there such as metal, plastic etc. and will not operate until the object is removed. It can hold 1GB of music to play while food is cooking or if you want music when in the kitchen. As for safety the micro can be limited to certain features without a password. It can also connect to the internet for updates to its knowledge of foods and recommended times (wireless internet). It can also save presets or custom times for foods that are cooked often. Scenario: Bill wants to heat up hot pockets so he puts them in the microwave and 5 seconds later the microwave starts (on its own). Bill has the settings to automatically play music while cooking food. The food is ready and the microwave stops the music and a human voice (not the beeping sound) says "your food is ready Bill". Bill opens the microwave and takes the food out. The touchscreen offers choices "continue music play back?" YES or NO.
