FOODIE / Interaction concept for intelligent appliances


FOODIE the refrigerator provides a novel solution with interaction design for green hands in the kitchen. Small cameras are embedded in each layer to provide the ability of recognizing different types of food for FOODIE. FOODIE can provide you some suggestions according to your taste and health. When you take out one ingredient from the refrigerator, FOODIE will give you several ingredients that fit it best. For instance, when you grab a tomato, the area below the beef and the onion would be luminated, so that users would know that they should better cook them together.
