A new device called The Genie allows for the automatic preparation of food, much like the replicators on Star Trek. It is the brainchild of two Israelis, Ayelet Carasso and Doron Marco.
They developed it under the auspices of White Innovation.
Once again a futuristic device first conceived by the writers of Star Trek is now becoming a reality. First automatic doors, then mini cell phones that look like communicators and now food replicators. Soon we will be able to travel at warp speed and beam to anywhere in a matter of seconds.
The device uses pods similar to those used in some espresso machines and can turn natural dehydrated ingredients into a dish within 30 seconds. The company also states that its product is eco-friendly.
Meals are prepared in 140 gram portions in recyclable containers and the device comes with a mobile app with which to operate it.
Calling it your “private chef, ” the company’s website boasts, “Get a taste of the all new Genie: This one of a kind, private chef, is uniquely designed to create tasty, healthy & personalized dishes – in less than a minute!”
Genie says that the future of food is made by combining high-end patented technology, with the finest, safest and tastiest ingredients, to create the ultimate food in less than a minute.
The Genie Smart Baking Pods feature “endless possibilities to create the perfect dish to fit your personal taste buds. You can also go wild with our special edition recipes, exclusively made by World Class Chefs and Bakers for Genie.”
Each Smart Baking Pod, contains natural baking ingredients mixed with the freeze dried fruits and vegetables, with no added preservatives.
You can personalize your food to fit your specific diet, whether you need gluten, egg or even dairy free foods. The Smart Baking Pods are also eco-friendly, with a shelf life of over a year that highly reduces food waste.
“The dish can be anything, it can be a meal like chicken with rice, like couscous with vegetable or an amazing Ramen or even a chocolate soufflé or any other desert that you want, ” Carasso told Reuters.
“We’re using only natural ingredients, we’re not using any preservatives or anything that people add to their meals, ” she added
“Eventually, Genie will know your microbiome and will prepare the pod for you, just for you and you will eat better, even tastier and healthier, ” said 47-year-old Marco.
“We can even the food distribution in the world. That’s a very, very important goal for us, ” he added.
