Nov 05, 2015 06:00 PM EST | By Alexis Villarias
Innit officially launched today at the Smart Kitchen Summit in Seattle with an initial funding of $25 million from founders and strategic investors. It is a new company that developed a whole new form of kitchen technology. Innit manages and connects food information via cloud-based platform that enables it to cook food by itself.
As reported in Business Wire, Eugene Minvielle, founder and the president of Innit said, "We all want to make food tastier and healthier, but until now we've had limited information on the food we eat. Innit applies culinary and nutritional science to unlock information within food, empowering people to live tastier, healthier lives."
Many efforts have made to develop a smart kitchen in the recent years however information within the food itself was the main challenge. However, Innit has developed a technology innovations including advanced sensors, smart appliances, machine learning and on-demand delivery models that will transform the industry and create opportunities for both consumers and industry players.
Kevin Brons, co-founder and CEO of Innit said, "By connecting food information to appliances and devices, Innit can help people maximize simplicity, flavor and nutrition. The Innit team brings together deep expertise from the food and technology sectors to address longstanding challenges in innovative ways."
Wired had a look and feel inside the kitchen that listens to food and cooks by itself. Although there were two chefs present inside the kitchen, most of the heavy stuff were done by Innit that includes determining the temperature that the food needs to be cooked in, when to change the temperature, how long to cook the food and how to know if the food is already cooked.
To put it simply, Innit has created a cooking system built on machine learning and high-tech sensors that can identify whatever it is you're cooking and be able to produce perfect results every time. Given the ingredients available, it designs a cooking process optimized for your specific menu. All you need to do is hit Play and wait for the food to be ready.
"You can get extraordinary information from food, and you can know tremendous amounts of things," Minvielle said. "Up until now, that's been limited to the factories and laboratories. Now we have the opportunity to bring this information to the consumer and help them answer questions."
Furthermore, Innit has the ability to recommend an array of dishes given the contents of your cupboard. It also detects the best possible meals given the freshness of your ingredients, unlike phone apps that may only suggest meals based on the list of ingredients.
Given this new kind of technology, home cooking will be so much easier and it will eliminate eating out. Do you want to own a kitchen that can cook by itself? Do you find this helpful? Share us your thoughts by leaving your comments below.
