The kitchen of the future

At 2014 International CES Whirlpool presented an interactive kitchen concept that turns a typical kitchen surface into a stovetop ( the surface can also be activated with the touch of a finger or via voice activation), checks the weather, finds recipes on Pinterest, research information about cooking and post pictures to Facebook.

The concept is called “kitchen of 2020″  and could integrate hands-free devices and touchscreens into the kitchen itself.

“The Whirlpool Interactive Cooktop concept is inspired by the desire and potential for integrating all at-home technologies into one kitchen appliance in a way that makes cooking, multitasking and entertaining easier and more enjoyable,” Chris Quatrochi, director of Global Creative Design at Whirlpool, told Mashable. “It also cuts down on time spent planning and preparing meals, so families have more time to enjoy cooking or eating with each other.”
