After seven years, you can finally own The Keyboard Waffle Iron

"Seven years ago, we brought you the story of a waffle iron that shaped the tasty treats into a keyboard. Plenty of you saw it and wished that you could have one of your very own, and it turns out that good things do come to those who wait. Designer Chris Dimino has taken to Kickstarter to raise money for the production run of The Keyboard Waffle Iron. He's asking for $50,000 to get things moving, with a $60 contribution all you need to get one delivered to your door. Unfortunately, the units won't ship until April, but that should give you four months to get your batter mixing skills up to scratch. I mean, I dunno what more you need - it's a waffle iron in the shape of a keyboard, just go order one already."

I read this book a month or so ago. It really is an excellent fun adventure story. It's refreshing to experience science fiction that takes the science piece seriously. 
Book recommendation:
The Martian by Andy Weir

I think the quickest way to describe The Martian is "modern day Apollo 13 on Mars". The story follows Mark Watney, a crew member of a manned mission to Mars, left behind as he and his crew rush to leave the planet when a freak dust storm comes in and threatens the mission. Nobody knows he's alive, and he has to survive on his own.

One of the things I loved most about the story was the main character. Watney's no idiot; he knows what he needs to do to survive, and he makes ingenious use of the resources available (one of my favourite bits was when Watney makes water from surplus rocket propellant). But he's also not infallible (I can't really say a lot on this without spoilers).

Also, here's an article written by Weir on the process of writing The Martian: salon.com/2014/02/11/how_science_made_me_a_writer/
