After the success of its Lumia series smartphones, the Finnish company turned its focus towards the Microwave oven industry and today introduced first of its kind oven the Nokia 5AM-TH1N6.
The full Touch screen oven comes with a superfast, water-cooled 8-core high-voltage transformer, which brings a combined performance of 5,000 watts to end-users, letting them heat up turnkey meal solutions within seconds.
Olavi Huhtikuu, Nokia’s director of household innovation said:
Nokia has a proven track record and extensive IPR in working with microwave radios, so for us this was a logical next step. We can attack our competition in their core business. That’s why we developed the highly innovative 5AM-TH1N6 Constellation, which will revolutionize everything from single households to canteen kitchens.
The device comes with the latest eye-tracking technology you saw in Samsung Galaxy S4 recently, which stops the food from rotating when you look at it, and it automatically adjusts the temperature depending on how hungry you look.
In addition, the device has a highly sensitive touch display which can be operated with oven mitts, enabling you to conveniently select one of 25 different performance levels in order to heat up the 40-litre cooking chamber.
The product also comes with a selection of apps, sensors and a high-resolution PureFood camera that automatically shares pictures of ready meals with friends and family via social networks. People can also rate the food and comment immediately.
According to the details made public the device will begin shipping in Q2 for a price of 399 Euros before taxes and comes in a variety of colors including blue cheese cyan, lemon yellow and liquorice black. The company has plans to introduce a “Mini” version of this device very soon.
If you are wondering that “What the heck is this”, then let me remind you – its April 1st and like many other companies like Google and Sony Nokia is trying to fool you 🙂
