If there's one gift everyone in your life deserves this year (including you), it's definitely the keyboard waffle iron. You read that right -- and now you're going to eat a waffle shaped like a keyboard and all your dreams and work nightmares will be fulfilled. Brooklyn-based graphic artist and designer Chris Dimino is the genius behind this invention that you never knew you needed.

According to its Kickstarter page, the keyboard waffle iron will be available in April, but you can place orders now. Come springtime, the "most significant union of technology, design, and waffles in the modern age," can be yours for only $60.

Dimino has been developing the project for two years. What started as an art project turned into a real-life waffle iron shaped like a keyboard. In 2012, Dimino refurbished an old typewriter into a waffle iron, and the world went wild. When he shared his concept online, he reports getting seven million hits in one month. While he's no longer transforming old typewriters, Dimino's not letting the dream of a keyboard-shaped waffle die. Enter the keyboard waffle iron.

If you're wondering why you would ever need such a thing, you're totally missing the point. Just look at the photos and it'll all make sense. Work will never be the same.
