Move over Internet toaster: the wireless pan lid is here

I am sure that it is not April 1st, so the release I got last week from Nordic Semiconductor has to be legitimate. A company in Slovenia is using one of  Nordics chips to provide communication between the cooking hob and pot and pan lids.

To quote

“In operation, the IQcook hob continuously monitors sensors embedded into the pot and pan lids (any type of cookware suitable for induction hobs can be used on the IQcook appliance) to allow automatic optimization and automation of the five most common types of hob-based cooking process: steam cooking, cooking with large amounts of water (e.g. pasta or soup), slow cooking (e.g. stews), deep frying, and grilling. After selecting the desired cooking mode, the sensor installed on the pot/pan lid is activated by a simple touch.”

And I thought the barbecue sensor and iPhone app was a culinary step t.o far
