GE’s New Smart Microwave

For those of you all into Internet of Things home devices, here’s one that might interest you. GE introduced its Wi-Fi enabled smart countertop microwave that syncs Amazon’s Alexa to make heating those leftovers up, ummm, smarter.

While it can’t put the food you want to cook into the microwave by itself, it can do pretty much everything else in the process. All you need to do is scan the barcode of a specific food with a smartphone camera, and then the microwave will cook it perfectly using the exact correct time and power level. Over time, the microwave’s library of known foods will grow. Eventually, you can just tell Alexa what you’re cooking and have the dish heated to perfection.

Now, you might be wondering why we’d use smart technology to make microwaving a hot pocket even easier. But hey – it’s the wave of the future. The extra features make it worth the relatively low price alone.
