It could very well be that in the future, we could extend our arguments about hardware performance to household electronics if NVIDIA were to have it their way, because it seems that an oven dubbed “June” has been launched and under its hood is the NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, the same processor series that powers the Nexus 9 tablet.
However this is the quad-core version, not the Denver model in the Nexus 9, but we suppose you get the idea. Calling itself an intelligent oven, it seems that the June oven will be able to determine what it is you’re trying to cook through weight and by looking at it. Users will first have to place the item they want to cook on top of the oven to weigh it.
Next they need to stick it into the oven and thanks to a Full HD camera embedded inside of it, it will be able to determine what it is you’re trying to make and will calculate an appropriate cooking time. Of course you could always choose to set the time yourself if you know what you’re doing, but you’d be missing out on the whole idea of this oven.
It will feature a 5-inch touchscreen display for its controls, and will also sport carbon fiber heating elements which apparently can reach maximum power in five seconds. This helps to decrease the amount of time needed to preheat the oven, which according to its creators should take about four minutes to preheat it to 350-degrees Fahrenheit.
That being said the June oven does not come cheap. It is priced at $1,495 but this is with a $95 pre-order discount. Once the device hits the shelves of retailers, you can expect to fork out a whopping $2,995 for it, but hey, all in the name of technology, right?
