Ideas That Matter: Ambient Technology and Healthy Living

Transcript

0:03
I was curious if we have an island that’s dropped into the middle of this large
0:07
space – how do you interact with
0:10
what’s on the other side of the kitchen?
0:12
So I was thinking – a clear screen with digital readout.
0:16
Having that transparent screen,
0:18
it makes it a very interactive island so
0:21
someone could be on the front side
0:22
cooking and someone on the backside
0:24
watching a TV. So we were thinking – how do
0:26
you interact with something that plays a
0:28
prominent role in the home and we were
0:30
thinking something very informal. You’re in your home
0:34
so how about voice. I was also seeing
0:36
warmer metals. So I have what I call a
0:39
rose bronze – it’s not too pink, it’s
0:42
not too warm – and how that plays with
0:45
other really rich cream. If you could
0:47
take an entire kitchen and drop it into
0:50
an urban loft
0:52
you could have accessories,
0:55
pantry peripherals, along the wall or not at all.
0:59
The idea is that you have this
1:01
cooktop surface – do you need an
1:04
oven? So, more of that compact urban
1:07
living and really getting it down to the essentials.
1:10
So we have a self-watering herb garden.
1:12
We’re seeing home gardening on the rise.
1:16
Think about urban home gardening – so if you’re
1:19
if you’re in a space and you don’t
1:21
actually have an exterior gardening
1:23
space – how do you bring that indoors?
1:25
So the screen actually acts as grow lights
1:27
for this self watering herb garden.
1:30
Once you prepare your ingredients, you can
1:32
drop your natural waste into the compost drawer
1:34
and then it produces compost pucks which then are put back into the
1:40
herb garden completing that whole herb garden cycle.
1:44
We have a fresh food freezer within one single drawer.
1:48
We also have the compost drawer and we
1:52
have a dishwasher. On the countertop, we
1:54
have a colander and drying rack that
1:57
rests beneath a cutting board.
1:59
The cutting board is flush with the countertop,
2:02
giving you a little more prep space
2:04
and such a small linear footprint
2:07
and that actually goes seamlessly into
2:10
an induction anywhere zone on the countertop.
