14. Nokia turns up the heat with branded microwave oven
Nokia's cellular business has been going down the pan for some time. The Finnish phone maker is branching out to microwave ovens, according to a blog post — obviously written by staffers behind the scenes tee-hee-heeing at the thought of such a thing.
The new Nokia 5AM-TH1N6 comes with eye-tracking technology which "stops the food from rotating when you look at it," and appears to be powered by Windows Phone, according to the live updating tiles on its display.

Yes, an orange. Handily noted by the teardown team as being "believed to be the hybrid between a pomelo and a mandarin," the team use their existing bevy of tools and machinery to look inside one of the most popular fruits of all time. Behold, the oOpener!
