I’m not just talking about people who like to sleep in, or lounge in their La-Z-Boy®, or let the dog out of their truck half a mile from home so Rover can chase them the rest of the way and they can say they’ve “walked the dog”. No, I’m talking about people to whom laziness is a higher state, a state of grace that they work on perfecting every day (work, but not too hard, you understand). For those people (and I say “those” because surely I am not among them), there’s a new gadget that will raise their laziness to an art and a science.
I present to you the jewel in the crown of king-hell langour and lassitude, made to order for the Sultans of Sloth — a fridge magnet that can be pressed to order pizza.
Ever wish pizza could magically appear at the press of a button? A pizzeria in Dubai has unveiled a new refrigerator magnet that actually orders pizza in a single tap. Impulse eaters beware.
Called the VIP Fridge Magnet, the pizza box-shaped magnet is connected to Red Tomato Pizza in Dubai. The magnet is preset to order a pizza online and is connected to the Internet via the Bluetooth connection on a smartphone. Red Tomato Pizza then sends a confirmation text and delivers the pizza soon after. You can also update your pizza selection online at any time.
Really: preset the thing online, connect with bluetooth and from then on, whenever you want your favourite veggie-pineapple-and-pepperoni pizza, you just drag your ass over to the fridge, press button and VOILA! Confirmation text followed shortly by PIIIIIZAAAHHH. (You still have to get up and answer the door, but I’m sure they’re working on that bug.)
I can’t decide whether this thing is cool or disgusting. It’s one of those rarities that’s a bit of both, I guess.
So far it looks like it’s only available in Dubai, so we are probably out of delivery range… err umm not that we’d get one of these things anyway!
