The Kitchen Hideaway
No seriously, wat.
So basically, the dealy with this little thing is that it lets you cook in your kitchen... from not in your kitchen. From what I gather, its designed for use in an apartment setting. People in their apartments have the helmet and viewport in their room, and it controls an automatic cooking robot down in the main kitchens.
Why is the crazy psycho-neurosis helmet thing necessary? Why can't I just input what I want on a touchpad and let the robot do the work? I have this robot so I DON'T have to cook, not so I can do it from anywhere! The only applicable uses I can see are if you are SUPER EXTREMELY PICKY about how your food is cooked. And then why don't you just get a kitchen proper? Kind of silly, if you ask me...
There really is not much more to say about this, beyond the fact that this is the first in a series of what I will call "Cloud Appliances" - appliance that, like the internet cloud, are designed to take the work away from your apartment / house / wherever and store / perform it in a communal place.
