The Can opener is the first gadget to have the ability to open and close in one click, and it’s one of many that the startup Kitchenaid has been working on.
The new product, a gadget that lets you control appliances remotely, was introduced earlier this month at CES, but now we can finally get our hands on the official launch.
The gadget is the work of Kitchenaid, a San Francisco startup that was founded by the founders of the first Kitchenaid product, the KitchenAid Pocket.
The company is working with an engineering team that includes Cookson Labs and is using the Pocket’s capabilities to create a prototype of the new Can opener.
The prototype uses an infrared sensor and camera mounted on the Can opener’s body to detect when the lid is open.
As a result, it can be controlled remotely via an app that can be accessed through the Can’s remote controls.
In a demonstration with a small appliance, Kitchenaid showed that the Can opened and closed in just a few seconds, which is a remarkable feat for such a small device.
As a proof of concept, Kitchenidos CEO Ben Stokes showed off the new gadget at CES by setting up an outlet on the floor of a coffee shop.
He then placed the gadget in a large coffee pot on the counter and held it above the counter while he and the team demonstrated the ability of the Can to open or close the coffee pot in less than 10 seconds.
Kitchenaid says that the new prototype can be used to control any appliance that’s attached to the Kitchenaid Can and uses the Can as a remote control for the appliance.
This includes a blender, vacuum cleaner, and more.
Kitchnaid is currently testing the Can with two appliances, a kitchenaid kettle and an e-cigarette.
If the new product becomes available to the general public, the company hopes to release a consumer version of the gadget.
