Happy Thanksgiving to our American readers – and to the many people in Ireland and elsewhere who celebrate it too!
Here’s a seasonable tummy-themed video from Robert Scoble’s Facebook, featuring an Irish CEO making muffins in Robert’s kitchen.
“Cooking is an art, but baking is a science” explains Ben Harris, CEO of Drop, “an interactive recipe platform and a pipeline of products to talk to it”. The first of those products is the Drop Kitchen Connected Scale, which uses Bluetooth Low Energy to talk to the Drop app on your tablet, allowing you, for example, to instantly scale a recipe based on available ingredients.
Ben and his team are award-winning designers, which explains why Drop was judged worthy to be stocked in Apple Stores. What’s more, he’s got a slick pitch and he knows there’s a frustrated baker in each of us just waiting to get out!
Thanks to David Ivor Smith for sharing on Facebook.
