Fu­ture Bound

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - FEATURE -

2018 is the year of ‘ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence’, two sim­ple words that have be­come the foun­da­tion of ev­ery tech-ori­ented com­pany. It is no won­der that it has taken over the kitchen as well. De­spite Wi-Fi en­abled ap­pli­ances be­ing show­cased as early as the early 2010s, they have not seen the level of ma­tu­rity and in­te­gra­tion as they have had this year. Smart home as­sis­tants like the Ama­zon Alexa, Google Home, and even Ap­ple’s Home­pod with Siri are def­i­nitely gain­ing main­stream trac­tion, with kitchen ap­pli­ance pick­ing up the pace to match, of­fer­ing In­ter­net of Things (IoT) ap­pli­ances that per­fectly in­te­grate into any one of these smart as­sis­tants’ ecosys­tems. Be­yond just slap­ping a Wi-Fi chip onto a con­ven­tional ap­pli­ance, com­pa­nies like Sam­sung are also fea­tur­ing phys­i­cal tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vance­ments with their Dual Cook Flex™ oven with its Flex­i­ble Door. The oven is con­nected so one can mon­i­tor and con­trol the oven from their smart­phones at any time. Elec­trolux also flexed their in­no­va­tive mus­cles with their new SenseCook Pro hob range with fea­tures al­low­ing the user to set the cor­rect tem­per­a­ture in the pan, keep­ing it con­sis­tent for bet­ter fry­ing re­sults.
