Kitchen of the Future
Special Report: Kitchen of the Future
This Needham home may look like your average suburban house, but inside it has the kitchen of the future.
"I use the Internet by using these different things to call my stove, to virtually be in my kitchen whether I am or not."
Dory Yacobian and her family are not living with the "Jetsons" but they do have a futuristic hook-up.
"I can put my meal together, put it in my stove which is also a refrigerator and it will start exactly when I want it to."
By using a wireless computer tablet or even her cell phone Dory can program her stove to have meals ready when she and her family walk in the door.
"It allows us to have dinner exactly when I want it. If things change during the day, I can just call my stove."
With a 'wired' kitchen Dory can keep track of groceries, organize shopping lists and even search for recipes and print them all from the comforts of a couch.
"Itís very, incredibly easy if you can use the Internet and your cell phone you're there!"
Dory and her family are part of a pilot program that's put this technology in twenty Bay State homes. The organizers say they're not sure yet how much it would cost to do this in your home or how soon you might be able to do it.
