At first glance this conceptual interactive cooktop by Whirlpool seems to do the impossible, but futuristic ideas like these are not as far off as one might think, as the technologies needed to make this a reality in our homes actually already exist. By utilizing induction heating, the countertop would remain cool to the touch, thus making a touchscreen area safe and practical. An overhead projector puts all of the graphics right in front of us, and a motion capture camera–similar to an Xbox Kinect–makes the interaction possible. No more splashing spaghetti sauce on your iPad whilst checking on your Twitter, Facebook, Spotify, and Pinterest, or look up new recipes right on your countertop!
