Mykie, interface design, Siemens IFA, 2016


The innovative kitchen assistant by Siemens, Mykie has life-like features. At IFA 2016, he appeared at the heart of the connected kitchen, engaging with curious visitors through his gestures, movements and language.

Mykie’s interface enables him to chat with the home cook, suggest recipes from the internet, and then project them onto a wall. Should you be missing an ingredient, he simply orders it online. It’s a kitchen gadget that has literally been brought to life.
