In all the years that I've been cooking I have always looked at alternative cooking methods.
Just imagine a computer full of recipes, linked to a microwave... Get the idea?
Whenever you feel peckish, you just key your favourite dish into the computer, stick the ingredients inside the microwave and press the start button. Then pour yourself a glass of wine and relax.
Well, guess what... My dream may be about to come true...
The Smartchef - a partner in the kitchen for those who take pleasure in cooking, cuisine and the culture of food. Smartchef is a PC designed for chefs to use in the kitchen as they cook.
It provides hands on preparation tools to the cook along with learning, entertainment, organization and sharing functions. The device is split into two components; a stationary "smart" cutting board base and a portable tablet.
Because cooking enthusiasts get great satisfaction from hands-on contact with ingredients and their tools, the Smartchef does not automate or mechanize the tasks of food preparation. Smartchef is also not intended to reduce the owner's time in the kitchen. Instead, it is designed to extend that time and make the pursuit of the home chef’s passion more enjoyable and fruitful.
Can't wait for the next generation, can you?
