Aga turns the heat up on technology
11 June 2012: In one of the most striking examples of tech we’ve seen recently, British oven maker, Aga, has created the iTotal Control Oven, a stove equipped with a cellular modem to allow chefs to command their cooker remotely!
The Aga iTotal Control Oven not only connects to the web, but its built-in Sim card also means those who are without an internet connection can send the stove text messages instead. Commands such as “baking oven on”, or “all ovens off”, will trigger the relevant actions.
Alternatively, those with smartphones and tablets can access an app and control it all with a friendly touchscreen interface. The oven can also be accessed via PC through a web portal.
The oven nicely heated when you arrive home from work comes at quite a price, though, at £10,000. Users will also have to pay an additional £6 a month to use the Sim card and have to sign up to a one-year contract initially. The iTotal Control Oven was launched into British stores at the start of this month.
