Could this immersive AR experience revolutionize the culinary arts?
Earlier this month, the popular culinary livestreaming network Kittch announced that it is partnering with American technology company Qualcomm to create hands-free cooking experiences accessible via AR glasses.
Developed in collaboration with technical design company Trigger, the platform will offer users a variety of useful features while in the kitchen. This includes the ability to set timers, order specific ingredients, and follow interactive videos and recipes without ever having to touch your phone with your dirty little fingers. This is possible thanks to the use of gesture and eye-tracking technology.
“In pursuit of our vision at Kittch to help consumers rediscover the joy and creativity they can experience in the kitchen, we are thrilled to partner with Qualcomm to unveil the future of cooking at AWE,” said Brian Bedol, CEO and co-founder of Kittch, in an official release.
“Our mission at Kittch is to transform the cooking experience, and through this collaboration, we are able to deliver a seamless and immersive environment for home cooks. By harnessing the power of augmented reality and Qualcomm’s cutting-edge solutions, we are turning cooking from a frustrating chore into a delightful and joyful experience.”
“At Kittch, we are at the forefront of culinary innovation, and our collaboration with Qualcomm marks a significant milestone in our mission to redefine cooking experiences,” added Kalpana Berman, chief product officer of Kittch.
“By using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Spaces to seamlessly build and integrate AR experiences, we are empowering home cooks with a groundbreaking culinary toolset. Our aim is to provide users with an unparalleled level of interactivity and convenience throughout their culinary journey – from planning what to make to cooking in the kitchen.”
According to Kittch, accessing educational content in AR is easy. All you have to do is select AR Mode and you can begin following American restauranteur Ming Tsai’s instructions in AR. For more information visit here.
