Popcorn = 150+ degrees C
Egg = An egg needs a temperature of 158°F to become firm or 70C... Although, it should start turning white over 64-65C

Maybe if we modify the heat sink.
That's it, a Canola cooled heat sink.
I'll start working on the thermodynamics.

Ya good point, if it can you don't have to get up and go to the kitchen to eat, you can just keep playing your favorite game.
