Cooking is nothing more than a scientific experiment with edible elements, and Alex Duffner, a design student at Goldsmiths, University of London, wants to remind us of that fun fact. His collection of laboratory instruments that double as kitchen appliances, “Domestic Science Machines,” lets people stumble upon their own scientific discoveries at home.

Duffner hacked common household appliances to create some fancy scientific equipment, all of which serve two purposes. A coffee machine that can be transformed into a functioning spectrometer and a slow cooker that can be used to grow DNA are just two examples of how Duffner’s project make it easy for people to engage with science.

Now in collaboration with Technology Will Save Us, Duffner hopes to turn his prototypes into commercial products.
