Just when you thought smartphones couldn't be incorporated into your life any more, 'Range' links your mobile devices with a cooking thermometer. This smart thermometer for iOS by Texas-based company Supermechanical attempts to make cooking more hi-tech and precise.
One end of the Range thermometer is a thin rod that is placed into your pot or roast. The other end is connected to your smartphone's earphone jack, signalling temperature indications through a corresponding graph.
This device essentially digitalizes the progress of your cooking. What once was done with intuition and free-handed skill is now aided by a technical device for precision. The Range comes in two sizes: the Aqua Range is for larger and deeper pots and containers, and an amber version for oven roasts.
