RIP Joshua Ozersky

Food, the Final Frontier?
Israeli entrepreneurs Doron Marco and Ayelet Carasso of White Innovation Company took it on themselves to make Star Trek’s food replicator a reality. Dubbed The Genie, the invention is a cross between a Keurig coffee maker and a microwave oven. Basically, it makes meals from pods filled with dehydrated ingredients. You use its mobile app to tell The Genie what to make and it does the rest in 30 seconds. If the machine works as advertised, it should be pretty awesome. Click here for details.

Last year, over forty teams were turned away at the Royal because the event ran out of space. Visit here for more info.
