Our friends over at TechCrunch got the scoop on Gilt Taste, a high-end online grocery retailer that doubles as an online magazine. What’s intriguing, however, is an iPad app that it’s currently developing.
The folks behind Gilt Taste are working to perfect “motion-activated recipes” using the iPad 2’s camera. Instead of touching an iPad while you’re cooking, you would just make a hand gesture in front of the screen to go through the recipe. Those who use Microsoft’s Kinect are familiar with the technology.
This sort of technology makes perfect sense, and it’s the sort of app that I think the iPad 2 is made for. As someone who used to get flour and fingerprints on my iPad while cooking, it would be nice to have an app such as this.
