From Designboom's "Dining in 2015" design competition comes this device above, created by an Iranian team that says, "Your car exhaust is a barbeque now.. Stop the car when you are hungry, install the device to the exhaust and back to drive. You'll have a hamburger in no time. This way you don't need fuel for cooking while commuting and a large amount of energy would be saved."

Great, guys. Now get to work on that carburetor-based bun-baker, and we'll have burgers coming and going.

Just to be clear—you're not actually cooking the burger with the exhaust but with the heat of the exhaust. The clamshell chamber is sealed, and the fumes bypass it. After the jump, a photo that shows how the thing works. [via Gizmodo, thanks to "Hamburger" Matty]
