What if your entire stovetop was a touch-sensitive heating pad that could fit up to 21 pots and pans? "The William" is just a concept at this point, but kind of fascinating. It's made up of 1,500 touch-sensitive honeycombs that create uniquely shaped heating surfaces for food, using all of the stovetop's surface area. Neat factor: you can create custom settings for each shape (like having it reduce the temperature in x minutes, while another one is turning off in y minutes) and it has a Lite-Brite look happening. Watch the video, after the jump.
