The June Intelligent Oven is a computer-based countertop oven that is loaded with smart features and technology that aims to make everyone a better cook. The device is designed to provide a smarter and a more modern cooking experience. Founded by Matt Van Horn and Nikhil Bhogal, June (the parent company) released the June Oven for preorder and is expected to ship mass-produced models by Spring, 2016.
The oven has one cubic foot of cooking area inside. Unlike traditional micro ovens, June does not have a control panel to set time and other meal settings. Instead, it boasts of a 5-inch touch screen panel with a precision knob that is directly mounted onto the edge-to-edge glass front door. Inside the oven is where its technology really shows. Fitted with carbon fibre elements that heat in seconds and weight sensors, June is fully equipped, both in terms of hardware and software. The oven’s features are handled by an NVIDIA 2.3GHz quad-core CPU. The June iOS app was created to receive updates about the meal’s progress as photos through the oven’s full HD camera via the Wi-Fi connectivity of the oven. This camera also records the meal’s progress and generates a time lapse which can be shared with friends and family, preventing the need to hover over to check on the meal. Self-learning technology, in coordination with the weight sensors, find out what type of food is being prepared and suggests a method that would be appropriate. With the thermometer, the oven can also determine how cooked are meals, whether rare, medium or well done and predict a time by which it will be done.
This smart oven, like smart phones, receives software updates by the engineers at the company, which can be expected to recognize more food types and recommend settings to cook them. June’s iOS app also comes with a vast library of video recipes which can be added to meal plans or the user can select meals as per the ingredients available. The app keeps a log of all the meals cooked so that a healthy dietary plan can be designed. June is recognized as not just a smart cooking tool but also as a cooking companion that helps users plan healthy meals.
