Need a New BBQ? How About One Designed by a Former Chief Designer at Apple?

Robert Brunner was the Director of Industrial Design at Apple between 1989 to 1996, helping to create such things as the iconic Apple Powerbook. When he left, some kid named Jonathan Ive took over and Brunner went on to different things.  In 2006, he co-founded a company that designed cool BBQ grills.

Larry found the Fuego Element, a propane-powered grill that looks, well, kinda like what a grill would look like if it were designed by Apple. Given that Steve Jobs was a hardcore vegetarian, it’s a little tiny bit ironic that this thing probably sears a mean steak. But it does cost less than a top-of-the-line iPod.
