40RING / Cooker


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

40Ring consists of a delicate sensor ring and an intelligent induction cooker.

The „40Ring” is a cooking system that enables user to control the process. This is a very interesting solution. It is comfortable for people with smell, hearing or sight impairment. Using the system is a huge time-saving. While cooking there is no need to control the pots. The ring on the finger controls cooking process while the user can do other things.
