Mellow is the world’s first smart sous-vide machine or you can consider it as your robot chef in the kitchen. What we eat has never been more important as we live in a time of exceptional abundance, it’s great but on the other hand, it causes obesity as well. Do you know that one-third of U.S adults are obese? and weight-related diseases have taken thousands of lives prematurely. Many people are too busy to cook and eat healthy food, we trade that with mass produced meals, which are not healthy. We also live in the era where technology’s rapid advance is un-debated, therefore, technology should help us even more to encourage healthy eating lifestyle.
Meet Mellow. The vision for this project is to develop a robot chef for home cooks, a cooking assistant that lives on your countertop and can be controlled via your smartphone. This robot helps you craft great meals by crafting all ingredients into perfection and you can get them ready when you want them. Just to remind you that it doesn’t cook for you, just prepare everything so that you can stay focus on the creative process instead.
Designers : Ze Pinto Ferreira and Catarina Violante
