Microwave handle was broken. A few zip ties and a pen later we're good to go!

Alright guys, I need your help on this one. Not quite sure this picture 100% fits this site, but you're a smart bunch so I figured I'd ask your opinion.

What in the name of Odin is going on here? What liquid could that be? Is it helping the cup stick to the top or is that something to do with the microwave? I've been staring at this for half an hour and I'm still baffled. Let me know in the comments!

"Dry here to open?" So it's some kind of moisture-activated locking mechanism, where dehydration makes said mechanism weigh less and rise, thereby releasing the lock and opening the door?

Unless... oh wait, I see what it says now. Never mind, carry on.

3 U Penn students developed the µWave (microwave, get it?), an Arduino based kitchen hack that plays Youtube videos while you wait for noms. Once you set the cooking time the program goes to Youtube and finds a highly-rated video for the exact length. Read more about it at the project's website.

From the submitter: I bought this microwave oven for R$ 20 to fix it and use. Unfortunately, it is IMPOSSIBLE to find the keyboard membrane in Brazil. In USA, just the membrane costs $80!!! So I traced the keyboard circuit and made a new keyboard for it :)
