The iGrill @ CES 2011: What comes next?
 
 

Wonderful news, everyone! iDevices plans to unveil the iGrill, the world's first Bluetooth wireless cooking thermometer at CES 2011. Do you really need a Bluetooth cooking thermometer? Probably not. But you didn't need that 55" 1080p HDTV either. Sometimes gadgets are worth buying on cool factor alone.

The iGrill may -sound- silly, but "unprecedentedly high demand" has completely depleted existing supplies. If you order now, your iGrill won't ship before January 1. The iGrill has been such a success that Apple picked it for the Made For iPod, iPhone, iPad Developer's program.

This is a perfect example of the right way to blend wireless technology with an existing product. The iGrill has one very specific purpose: allow people more free time without compromising the integrity of the task. By including alarm functions and giving you live temperature data, this hybrid may actually improve the quality of your grilling. I know I have trouble focusing on steaks when there's a party in my living room.

Products like the iGrill allow us to be a little lazier than normal without suffering any consequences. That right there may be the key to any successful technology.

The iGrill's success virtually guarantees follow-up products. Like a connected coffee maker you can control through an Internet app. Or a wired fridge & pantry that displays your current food stores in a simple online database. Or maybe a knife that also acts as a 3G hotspot and a Bluetooth headset. The sky (and Bluetooth technology) is the limit!

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
