Until a couple of decades ago, modern kitchen appliances would have seemed an absurd fiction of science fiction writers: home grills, induction panels, smart refrigerators ... Now all these are ordinary household items that almost any family can afford.
Meanwhile, young inventors do not get tired of impressing their ideas. We collected for you the ten most unusual developments, which fully correspond to the concept of smart cuisine of the future.
Imagine what awaits us in five years?
Portable Microwave Electrolux Onda
Love trips to nature, but do not consider yourself an inspired cook? Perhaps in a couple of years there will be no need to install a brazier and try to find the ideal degree of roasting meat.
Simply connect a small device Electrolux Onda to the box with semi-finished products and after a few minutes fresh hot food is ready.
True, the experimental novelty has a number of limitations - first of all, you need to purchase special containers.
For ordinary dishes such a microwave oven will not work - it is due to its design.
Matthew Schwartz, the device developer is sure that the time limit is limited - it is possible that many manufacturers will appreciate the benefits of such products and will immediately begin to produce them in packages of special plastic.
Dish Washer Pure Washer
Do not know how to install all the necessary equipment in a small kitchen? Wait a couple more years - Electrolux has already launched in the industrial development built in the sink dishwashers.
Christian Moser developed a fundamentally new type of device that does not take up much space: special mechanisms are mounted directly under the kitchen sink, ensuring a constant circulation of water. Thanks to adjustable flows, both brittle crystal and massive pots are quickly laundered.
Note: Unlike analogues, this model is economical and environmentally friendly. You do not need to buy special tools for dishwashers. It will be enough just to pour into the mechanism the usual washing or even put a slice of soap, pour a little soda.
In our opinion - an excellent solution for a small kitchen, is not it?
Refrigerator with biogel
Bypassing this futuristic model in the rating of household appliances for the kitchen of the future is simply impossible. Agree, it looks like some kind of repository of films about distant space?
However, the purpose of the device is more simple and does not require a spaceship. This is ... Refrigerator!
Shelves and compartments of the Russian developer Yuri Dmitriev decided to replace biogel. Just put food in there and watch them hang in a jelly-like mass.
However, the name of the filler jelly is not entirely true: it is absolutely not sticky, has no taste and smell, it keeps the cold well and is able to keep the food fresh much more than a standard refrigerator.
Yes, and it looks very impressive. However, there are questions about the environmental friendliness of such a material: will it be so safe for human health?
You can attach the device both horizontally and vertically. In addition, the refrigerator is much smaller than most of the usual models and will be convenient for owners of small kitchens.
Due to the lack of shelves, doors and even motors, the design is very light and can be installed even on the wall.
And thanks to the properties of biogel, the products do not touch each other - for greater hygiene.
However, how comfortable this novelty will be, we will be able to judge soon - for the next ten years its release is not planned.
Cuisine Heart of the Home
Already by 2025 at the level with professional cooks everyone will be able to cook. It is enough to buy "Heart of the House" - an original kitchen concept in which manufacturers connected the work surface, an induction panel with artificial intelligence and a bar.
Do not even need to look for recipes - an intelligent device will do everything for you. Just put the ingredients on the table - you will be offered several options for cooking.
Interesting: The developers promise that you can set the program your food restrictions and preferences. Convenient, is not it?
Choose a suitable recipe and start cooking. True, you will have to grind the food yourself - or use a food processor.
Then just press a hand on the corresponding area on the hob (directly cooking, steam, roasting, etc.). Having formed the capacity of the required depth, load the food. It remains only to set the temperature and time, according to the recommendation!
Honestly, we do not quite realize the implementation - it looks too fantastic. Will we check?
More realistic is another design concept for the kitchen of the future - a modular kitchen from Matthew Gilbride. You can assemble blocks in any sequence, creating your own design design.
No, we were not mistaken - it's not just prefabricated furniture, similar to that sold in the famous IKEA network. The designer has developed a full-fledged compact kitchen, which is well suited for private houses and apartments, as well as for restaurants.
Each module carries a certain function - for example, the central compartments are equipped with induction panels. Side - small refrigerating compartments of open type. It is convenient for those who live alone and do not like large stocks.
In addition, the system is equipped with a hood and a small air conditioner - an excellent solution for those who do not tolerate hot steam when cooking.
If any of the options do not seem to be necessary - simply unplug the unit so that it does not take up unnecessary space.
Thus, the kitchens of the future tend to minimalism - one small wall-mounted shelving will completely replace the set with household appliances. Conveniently? Time will tell.
The Kitchen Hideaway - robot control center
Do not want to bother even with such a simplified version of cooking? For you all will make a special robotics, invented by a designer from Australia. Put on the helmet and use the holographic panel to give commands.
More than 1000 recipes, driven into the database, will satisfy even the most demanding gourmet.
Further, smart technology will do everything on its own - it is not even necessary to be present in the kitchen. However, it is better to make the blanks yourself.
The project is interesting, but with the timing of its implementation is still unclear - it is included in the plans, but even the approximate date the manufacturer is difficult to name. However, given the fact that robotics moves forward with leaps and bounds, it is unlikely that it will last - so that soon everyone will be able to enjoy home-made food prepared by androids.
Those who care about healthy nutrition know how important it is to choose the right drinking water. It is generally considered better to rain (however, in our opinion for modern megacities, the statement is doubtful).
Collecting it can be tedious - unless you want to wait until the Water Catcher enters the mass market. Small smart droids on command leave the base and fly out into the street through the window.
There they are recruited by rainwater, in parallel cleaning and saturating it with ozone. After this, small balls, similar to the fashionable a couple of years ago pokeballs (admit, who did not catch Pokemon on the streets of the city?), Return to the base.
On your team, they are ready to fill the glass with purified, useful water. It is not necessary to do this manually - special sensors will catch your touches and the capacity will fly in the given direction.
Agree, to imagine such at this stage of technology development is unrealistic - will we wait a few more years?
Do not remain out of sight of developers ahead of time kitchen appliances and microwave ovens. The model chosen by us is radically different from its modern counterparts.
Minimum programming options, only one sensor and a pair of buttons. Return to the past? No matter how it is!
Just put the product that needs to be thawed or cooked, and wait - after 10 seconds the screen will display information about the composition, name and weight of the content. Impressive, is not it?
Then indicate what you need to do - unfreeze, warm up or cook completely. With the rest, a smart machine will cope for you. Is not it intriguing?
This will avoid the many annoying mistakes known to the owners of the current microwave ovens - burnt from above, but raw meat inside, curdled fish.
A good gift for those who are just starting to learn how to cook. However, we have a question - do we need it at all taking into account the trends in the development of culinary technology?
Universal device Qumi
Do not want to take a separate room under the kitchen, but are sure that one microwave will not be enough? No problem!
Wireless device based on induction waves Qumi, developed by a Russian student, will be an excellent choice in this situation. It can act as a grill, cooker or steamer - it all depends on what dish you need to cook.
This unit is suitable for both first and second dishes. The device does not need wires, but is controlled by a conventional remote control.
In addition, thanks to its appearance, it's easy to put it even in the living room - there it will look like a nice piece of interior. Of course, until you want to surprise your guests with a perfectly prepared lunch or dinner.
Compact Snail Heater
Maybe this device seems too cumbersome for you? Also not a problem. Working on a similar principle of dissipating induction waves, a compact "Snail" does not need a separate place - just attach it to a cup, bowl or pan. Next, the device will cope on its own.
The method of nutrition is interesting: The gadget works ... on sugar crystals! A universal device that can be used both at home and in the campaign: refined, unlike rosettes, almost always can be found.
By the way, and wait for the "snail" will not take so long - in the sale it is planned to launch in 2020.
A separate item, bonus, we decided to include in the rating an absolutely incredible project, which, however, attracted wide public attention.
It should be noted that at the international contest Electrolux Lub, where all the above-mentioned developments were presented, this model was placed in the top 5 best.
Perhaps the author offered not only a fantastic idea, but also its implementation? In any case, we can only wait, but for now we offer to evaluate the idea.
Teleport Fridge - for the Laziest
We have already shown you how you can cook and wash the dishes without making any effort. The engineer from China has expanded the list of facilitated cases - now the store does not necessarily have to go out.
The concept of the refrigerator-teleporter since the application was most controversial. And it was he who was selected in the list of applicants for the implementation!
The author claims that the process should be carried out using wireless communication with the store and special sensory waves. In his speech he referred to studies that already confirmed the fact of the simplest atoms and even molecules.
In any case, the development seemed to the company promising and worthwhile further research. However, the term was also called fair - until 2070. Anything can happen?
We hope you liked our list of incredible technical novelties, which we plan to release on the shelves. What do you think we will really wait for?
