VideosIdeas That Matter: Ambient Technology and Healthy Living by AdminAugust 30, 2018September 28, 20180927 Share0 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.
