Alexa is going to at least own the living room, and there’s a good bet that it’s going to own the whole home. But that’s not stopping RnD64, a small company building a small little black voice-powered black egg, from trying to get in the kitchen first.
Hello Egg works as a cooking assistant, with a few extra flourishes — like a friendly little eye to keep you company on a small reflective screen. That screen will show you techniques and videos as well as the typical recipe instructions over voice. After all, you’ll probably want to know how to properly cut open an avocado before swinging your knife straight into it.
We also, however, saw at least a million voice-powered devices (most of them powered by Alexa) at CES this year. So this may just be yet another flash in the pan from CES 2017 this year. And all of this you could probably do on your phone, flipping through different parts of a recipe and videos (though you might be doing it with raw chicken on your hands). But, anyway! Back to the egg.
