Inspiration can strike at any time, and presumably the creator of this unique BBQ happened to be watching Contact while trying to come up with a new design.
Unfortunately, Cesarre's Kara's raison d'être is a little less inspired than its sci-fi inspiration, unless you prize grilling meat over exploring the unknown dimensions and corners of our universe. Instead of nuclear power, this baby runs on charcoal. And instead of spinning, it just sits there on your lawn making your neighbours wonder what kind of grilling experiments you're attempting.
And if you're thinking to yourself: "with a bizarre design like that the Kara grill is probably going to cost a small fortune" you're exactly right. Snagging one for your deck will set you back just north of $7,300, so you're probably going to want to start charging your BBQ guests for seconds. [Cesarre via Appliancist]
