Using recipes to cook is an idea that’s so 2000, at least according to some futurists that have turned their attention on how to life-hack cooking to make it a better, easier experience.
A recent piece published in the Washington Post takes a look at how some in the cooking business are creating mobile apps to help folks come up with what to eat for dinner, all customized to a given consumer’s taste and needs.
One app, from a startup called Innit, takes your dietary restrictions (Paleo or gluten-free, say) and takes a list of ingredients you have selected and will spit out all kinds of different recipes. What’s more, the app can also preheat your oven since it is (of course) connected to your smart appliances.
