Ryan and his wife were ready to stop being paper bound in the kitchen, and needed away to let go of recipe cards, printing recipes from the internet, and keeping cookbooks away from sauce splatters. And, being 2010, they turned to accessible digital technology. Their goals – slash – requirements?
- must be discrete and look like a digital picture frame when not being used.
- must be touchscreen.
- must have internet access.
- must be easy to use and not crash often (she’s used to windows vista)
- must have barcode scanner for managing her kitchen database.
- the wires and techo stuff must be hidden and out of sight.
- should be able to view what’s on the lounge TV in the kitchen
And with some ingenuity and clever resources, they pulled it off, for around $425 USD ($1980 NZ$), and it looks like a giant iPhone on the wall!
