The role of family cook would be much easier job to do if Bálint Kardos' 'The Chef' ever went from concept to reality. The aptly named gadget is designed to make shopping for groceries and thinking up dinner dishes an infinitely easier task.
The Chef's main function is relaying the contents of your fridge to you while you shop using RFID tags. This is an important function as it means that you no longer have to catalog what is in your fridge to keep from wasting money. The device can also be used as a digital grocery list. Perhaps the most awesome function of The Chef is its recipe list. After you select a dish on the device, the ingredients needed will automatically be added to your shopping list.
Kardos' cooking gadget can also function as a virtual wallet and can turn on your oven and stove as you drive home. This concept is certainly ambitious, but don't be shocked if you see bits and pieces of it start appearing in gadgets soon.
