Announcing our next theme: Kitchen hacks

Here’s a theme that has the Hackaday staff quite excited; Kitchen hacks. This is a wide-ranging subject that can include anything having to do with food, food preparation, kitchen implements, and enhancements.

We’ve seen quite a few fantastic examples of this theme already. How about a kitchen island the mixes cocktails to order? Perhaps you’d prefer an AI that keeps track of your shopping list or just a computer kiosk that’s nicely integrated. Of course there’s already an iPod dock for that! You might be looking to supe up a pressure cooker, or add a Sous Vide machine to your culinary arsenal. We shouldn’t leave out the ability to ‘print’ images on toast.

Speaking of toast… we’re still waiting for someone to build a laser bread slicer that toasts as it goes. You get the point. Ladies and Gentleman, grab a computer, document your Kitchen hacks, and send them our way!

    Love it.
    The automated cocktail island was one of my favorites. Can’t wait to see what new stuff there is!

    I was just thinking this morning about some type of device, in the manner of roll out shelves, that would move out and lower the contents of upper cabinets in the kitchen. Initial thoughts included scissors (lift) mechanism and negator springs.

    Of course, my initial thought was of the 2-cycle blender…

    Oh good a category for an environment where sharp knives, open flames, and bits of dead animals are not only common place but expected. This is going to be good. I want a stove that doubles as a flame thrower, a liquid nitrogen freezer, and ballistic lunch delivery vehicles.
