Ever feel bored while you wait the 2:30 for the microwave to nuke your box of noodles? Wouldn't it be great to have a tiny little screen nearby playing a random two minute and 30 second video? Yeah, somebody else though so too.

The CastOven is a microwave with a twist—a 10.4-inch LCD screen in the door and an unusual link to YouTube.

When you drop lunch inside and set the timer, the CastOven instantly finds a random YouTube clip of a similar length and displays it on the built-in screen while you wait for your grub.

It's a concept gadget for now. But is this something you'd actually buy, Unplgg'rs? The prototype requires that the microwave is hooked up to a computer (Like the kitchen computers we've been trending), but would you be sold if this CastOven had a built-in processor? Tell us in the comments!
