Drop gets into the kitchen with a connected scale for bakers
In the internet of things, the kitchen often seems to be the last room in the house to get some love. Garages, locks, pets and especially outlets are all getting some kind of radio and smarts via an app, but so far, cooking is left on its own. Maybe that’s because there aren’t open data standards for food or because the connected fridge burned people so badly. Or perhaps it’s because everyone who sees the kitchen has decided that the best connected device to launch is a connected scale.
Adaptics, a company launching Monday afternoon, is no exception. It joins The Orange Chef (which raised $1.2 million from Google), Escali, Chef Sleeve and others in offering a scale that connects to a smartphone running apps. Like others, the Adaptics scale connects with an iPad (s aapl), a piece of technology already in use in many kitchens.
