If you've seen an episode of Star Trek, you're likely familiar with the Replicator device on board the USS Enterprise that synthesized meals and beverages on demand. Well, a company in Israel created the modern-day equivalent to that appliance with Genie. The counter-top gadget uses food pods to create the recipe you desire, and claims it's like having a personal chef around all the time. What's more, it does the cooking in under a minute. The company doesn't disclose the "patented technology" that makes this possible, but once a food pod is chosen and placed inside the Genie, 30 seconds is all the device needs to create "a freshly baked dish."

Those pods look a bit like a pint of ice cream and are packed with natural ingredients that have been freeze dried. This process ensures a shelf life of a year or more with food options like ramen, couscous and chocolate soufflé. Dietary restrictions? Genie can wrangle those with the push of a button. The whole thing is controlled by your phone, and eventually, plans are for the unit to learn a person's diet and coordinate meals based their micro-biome. Don't take my word for it though, see the Genie in action here.
