A 22-person research team from the June headquarters in San Francisco has developed The June Intelligent Oven which will cook your food for you so you won’t ever have to worry about burning or perfecting a dish.
June has the size of a microwave. The one cubic food coking space can fit a small turkey or a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. The smart microwave can identify what you have placed inside and using a wide variety of built-in algorithms and sensors it cooks the food properly. The price of the oven is $1,495.
The device uses carbon-fiber heating elements and convection fans in order to cook faster and evenly than a normal oven. The large glass door makes it easy for you to see what happens inside and the steel shelves are very easy to remove and clean. The oven is simple and sleek. It has no buttons and garish fans. So as strange as it may seem it might be very fit to call the oven beautiful.
June is provided with a quad-core NVIDIA K-1 processor, Wi-Fi connection and a 1080px HD camera. Besides the software algorithm which employs computer vision to check the food inside, the oven has its own app as well. June is also provided with a touchscreen interface which has a custom audio design and it also has a click wheel.
It is no surprise that the oven is so fancy considering its founders. One of the researchers who helped developing this device is a former Apple engineer who contributed at developing the technology employed by iPhone cameras including lock screen camera and tap-to-focus camera. Another researcher was the co-founder of Zimride which is now known as Lyft. The design of June was done by Robert Brunner’s studio, Ammunition.
Using the HD camera June can make the difference between 15 types of food such as cookie dough, pizza, bagels or bacon. It can even differentiate between vegetables which look alike such as asparagus and Brussel sprouts. In addition while June cooks your food you can use your smartphone to watch a live stream of what is happening inside. So you can use your smartphone to program the oven and you will even receive reminders when your meal is ready.
Of course something like this does not come cheaply. Although the pre-sale price is $1,495 when the device will reach retails shelves the price will double at $3.000. Those eager to try this innovative appliance can reserve their own June oven on the company’s website.
