What if your oven always knew what temperature to bake chicken?
How about a fridge that knows what to make with all of your leftover produce?
Or an app that lets you check on ribs using your tablet.
Init is itching to make its way into your kitchen to do just that.
Ovens and refrigerators are getting WiFi, they're getting cameras.
Our business is providing the intelligence layer to help Connect all of these devices to food.
We visited Innit headquarters in Redwood City, California to see exactly how they're redefining the connected kitchen.
Innit doesn't sell appliances like Samsung or Whirlpool, it sells the technology that helps your food talk to your kitchen.
All through an app that also includes yummy recipes.
Using sensors and cameras in WiFi enabled appliances, the tech can do things like recognize food and expiration dates.
Or perfectly set the temperature and cooking time of your oven.
You can use the app to view what's in your fridge and see more details on the items inside.
Like freshness and nutrition facts.
Or if you don't know what to make for dinner or want to try a new dish Place the main ingredients on your cutting board, then the Init cameras recognize the food item prompting the app to whittle down recipes to only options that include all of your ingredients.
The camera sees those and we're essentially doing the same facial recognition for food not only for the package food, but now for raw
Everything worked fine while it was demoed.
Even the ribs made in less than an hour tasted amazing.
But exactly how well this would work in the real world.
Used everyday by families with many mouths to feed has yet to be seen.
No word on how much appliances at Innit Technology will cost.
But expect to see them available as soon as 2017.
