Festive Occasion with an IoT Twist
Thanksgiving is a great time of year for catching up with family and offering up thanks to the people who have positively affected our lives.
Of course, there is also much in the way of turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie to enjoy, but on the whole, it is a time for enjoyment and creating memories.
However, the festivities can be enhanced somewhat with the inclusion of Internet of Things (IoT) gadgets, some of which we look at here. With a good WiFi connection and a few well chosen devices, you could make your thanksgiving one to remember.
So let’s dive in…
Gadget 1 – The June Oven
Cooking takes centre stage at thanksgiving, with people across the US attempting to cook the perfect turkey. In fact in 2017 alone, more than 46 million turkeys were eaten during the thanksgiving period and we guess, that more than a just a few them weren’t cooked to perfection. The June Oven takes all of the stress out of the cooking process, as it has a number of innovative features.
The first thing is that you can view the food cooking inside the oven via your smartphone, so you’re always aware of how things are going, but also intelligent sensors inside can identify food you place inside, tell you how much it weighs and recommend the ideal cooking program. Essentially, what you have is a cooking expert guiding you through to a perfectly cooked thanksgiving turkey.
Gadget 2 – The Duet Smart Coffee Table
During thanksgiving preparations, there are a lot of things to focus on, which can leave little time for keeping the young ones entertained. A perfect antidote to that is the Duet Smart Coffee Table, which is as impressive as it is multi-functional. Featuring a choice of a 43”, 49” and 55” touch screen and the latest 4K UHD graphics, backed up by cutting edge NVIDIA technology, what your little ones have is a coffee table sized play station (Not the Sony Kind). Your tots will be kept ably occupied, freeing you up to get on with your thanksgiving preparations
Gadget 3 – The Nest Cam
Whilst cameras have been used for decades to capture thanksgiving memories on film, none have quite the versatility of the Nest Cam. Used primarily as a security camera, the Nest Cam is able to take snapshots via your smartphone, even if you’re not there! It takes video too, so it’s possible to manipulate your images and movies as you see fit. Using one of these clever gizmos, you never need miss a moment of the big day.
So there, you have it. Thanksgiving may very well be a tradition that spans back hundreds of years, but with a dash of contemporary magic in the form of IoT, this old festive occasion can be enjoyed with modern twist.
