Cooking stove with 'Voice Navigation'
Sanyo Electric is to release in Japan the wildest appliance I've ever read about: their new induction heat-type cooking stove features a "voice navigation" function to make it easier to use.
The 200V Built-In IH Cooking Heater emits various musical tones when, for example, cooking is completed or water is boiled. The music can be downloaded from the internet via mobile phone and transmitted to the cooking unit via infrared communications.
The device also offers oral instructions for novice cooks.
