Japan is famed for being the homeland of the invention of instant noodles, but now with the latest development in food technology is rice that gets hot when you add cold water. According the Mainichi Daily News, Hotto! Raisu is the special non-perishable food pack that creates steaming hot rice when cold water is poured over an exothermic agent pack, producing steam that warms the rice making it piping hot in 15 minutes. Currently it's been suggested that the packs could be distributed to areas struck by natural disasters where electricity is often unavailable. However the packs are not cheap, costing 10,000 yen for 30 with pickled ume plum.
