With the new Hi Pedini App, the kitchen manufacturer Pedini now makes it possible to communicate with the kitchen in a 4.0 context (also experiential), combining design with Microsoft’s intelligent technology and the innovative spirit of startup IoMote.
Hi Pedini is the name of the App, technology and voice control developed thanks to the work of Pedini, Microsoft and IoMote in a logic of open innovation and contamination, which has produced a refined and technologically advanced furniture solution. This is well explained by Daniele Radi Temelini, president at Pedini: “Hi Pedini is the result of the strategic direction of our brand towards the eco-sustainable and intelligent home. Pedini, which uses only certified and sustainable wood, recyclable materials and minimum impact processing for its furnishings, has now moved forward, developing an advanced AI system integrated into a kitchen, capable of offering an unprecedented level of interaction with the user.”
The App (free of charge and connected to a system of battery-powered wireless sensors applied inside the doors) enables fast and intelligent interaction, able to recognize people’s voice inputs and react in a relevant way. Thanks to the Cloud Computing platform and voice recognition services based on Microsoft’s Artificial Intelligence, you can really talk to the kitchen, check energy consumption from your smartphone, monitor air quality and receive alerts in the event of gas leaks and water leaks. And then organize and manage the shopping list, find inspiration for new recipes, open and close the doors, wake up with coffee just ready. The App can also adapt the atmosphere to the needs of families, changing the colours and tones of the kitchen to make it more suitable, for example, when preparing baby food at night (soft lights and ‘baby’ mood activated) or activate the movement sensors to alert parents when the cabinets containing detergents or sharp objects are opened.
