Imagine a smart oven with a Nvidia Tegra K1, 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 5-inch touchscreen, full HD camera, Wi-Fi connectivity, and built-in digital scale. Oh, and it gets over-the-air software updates.
That's what Matt Van Horn and Nikhil Bhogal have recently dreamed up. They're former Apple engineers who both love to cook, and so naturally, they've come together to reinvent the kitchen oven for countertops.
June - the oven - is engineered for precision heating. It continually calculates the power needed to maintain a constant temperature, and it can supposedly cook food faster while using less energy than traditional ovens. It also relies on a core temperature probe in order to determine the moment your food is cooked.
And one of the best parts? June reaches 350 degrees (F) in just 4 minutes. It also features molded insulation to keep heat in, advanced carbon fiber heating elements to achieve maximum power, high-volume convection fans for eliminating cold spots, and digital TRIAC controllers for managing oven temps.
As for the HD camera, it captures the way your food looks in real time and shows you how it's doing via the June app. The app has tools to help you with your cooking, meal planning, and shopping. Watch the video below to learn more.
If the idea of a smart oven seems interesting enough, you can pre-order June until 10 July for $1,495 (about 50 per cent off the expected retail price).
The first units will ship next spring.
