Miito's Kickstarter page says it was designed to prevent people from wasting water and energy, which happens when heating liquids in kettles. But we'll bet it's the lazy tea drinkers who'll truly have a place for it in their homes. The device heats not just water, but also milk, soups and other liquids placed in any container without iron content. Just switch the platform on, place the bowl or glass on it, drop the heating rod in, and the liquid will be heated via induction energy. It's like a fancy version of those off-brand immersion heaters you'll likely find in many dorms, except a lot less portable.

Its creators told us they expect the device to heat a cup of water in 60 seconds, but heating times will obviously vary based on the liquid and thickness of the container. Miito's supposed to completely eliminate kettles from the equation, and it does look well-designed and elegant. However, its success likely depends on whether people are willing to shell out at least $84 for one, despite having stoves and coffeemakers. Those intrigued enough to want to know more can visit its campaign on Kickstarter, where it's trying to raise $168,000.
