Pantelligent is one smart frying pan Cooking can be hard. The team at Pantelligent are aiming to make the process a little easier, though, by allowing users to connect their "smart" frying pan to a smartphone to monitor temperature and cook time ... taking the guesswork out of pan cooking. View all The app is the key to Pantelligent. For the more adventurous chef, the system includes freestyle mode, which allows them to use the temperature-monitoring feature without following a recipe. Bluetooth Low Energy is used for communication with the phone, which allows for a range of around 50 feet (15 m) from the pan depending on obstructions. The pan itself is made with a Teflon nonstick coating that is rated to last 3 to 5 years. Designer Humberto Evans and the rest of his team are seeking funding on Kickstarter. The Kickstarter pitch video below provides more information and shows the pan in use. Sources: Pantelligent, Kickstarter Share

Flare Pan is claimed to be 40 percent more energy-efficient than regular cookware The Flare Pan is based on jet engine-cooling technology Image Gallery (2 images) When the University of Oxford's Dr. Thomas Povey was on a mountaineering trip several years ago, he became acutely aware of how much fuel was required to boil water using his conventional cookware. This inspired the professor of engineering to develop a new type of cooking pan, that would make better use of available heat. When Povey and colleagues tested traditional pans on a gas range, they noticed that much of the heat from the flame simply went up the sides of the vessel and into the air. Drawing on technology developed to dissipate heat in jet engines, the fins built into the sides of the Flare Pan served to absorb much of that previously-wasted heat. Developed through the university's Isis Innovation commercialization branch, the Flare Pan is available for pre-order through UK kitchen goods retailer Lakeland. The company is expecting to receive delivery of the pans and begin shipments as of August 25th.

The living room is full of egg-shaped furniture, the family owns a drone, the television is part of the wall, the thermostat calibrates the temperature of each room based on the body temperature of its occupants, using data gathered from their subdermal implants. Around the corner, in the kitchen, our lovely future wife is making dinner. The way any culture talks about its future says more about their present than it does about anything else. The way any culture talks about its future says more about their present than it does about anything else The home of the future has a long history. In 1956, GM released perhaps my favorite futurist movie ever made. A year later, Monsanto released their own vision for the House of the Future. Both of these future kitchens are products of a midcentury obsession with efficiency and anxiety about domestic roles. Not so much. This isn't a new phenomenon.
