Cell Phone Program Teaches Cooking
Are you a terrible cook? Tired of calling your mom for help every time you burn the main course? So was Israeli student Igor Ginzburg.
Tired of pizza and Taco Bell (though we aren't sure how that is possible), Ginzburg devised a cooking program for mobile phones called Chefi that alleviates the need to call mom for cooking tips.
Just tell Chefi what you are making and the program tells you everything you need. It even advises you on other dishes that may go with your meal. Chefi is voice activated so you don't need to touch the phone with your greasy mitts while you cook -- it also waits for your voice commands before moving ahead with the instructions.
While Chefi has yet to hit the mass market, Ginzburg hopes that users with their own recipes will ultimately upload recipes to a website that all Chefi users will be able to use with the cell phone application.
