Or you could just ask the cheesemonger: German over-engineering or something useful?

Really? This is an issue or is it a case of tech noodling no cheese shop wants? Do we really want less personal connection even when standing face to face with the customer?

What do you think? Cheese shop owners, is there a market for this?



Introducing the Intelligent Cheese Counter, a new retail innovation that lets you buy  cheese from an in-store seller, just by pointing at it through the display glass.

No this isn’t a joke, and we’re a couple of months early for April Fools’ Day yet. This is a new in-store retail concept from the German Innovative Retail Laboratory, part of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence.

Designed to make the cheese buying  process a little easier (an admittedly daunting task for cheese amateurs) it negates the slightly embarrassing problem of being unable to pronounce the name of a cheese, not knowing how it my taste, and what other foods or drinks it would go well with.

Salutation Recipes

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
