Technology meets the bag lunch

Better life through science! A new can includes the capability to heat the liquid inside before you consume it (through a simple chemical reaction, triggered by a push-button). Currently intended for canned coffee/latte drinks (ick!), this could easily be extended to soup, etc., although I don't know whether the reaction can generate enough heat to warm up a more solid meal such as a TV dinner... [The article also mentions baby formula, which could really be a boone to traveling parents, I'm sure.]
