MOTIC

Project

MOTIC has been developed for Candy–Hoover SpA, the national branch of a large multinational industrial group that plays a leading role in the domestic appliance sector worldwide. The project implements the company’s strategy of “meeting the competitive challenge through innovative products” (http://www.candy-group.com), and has two main goals:
  1. Branding & Marketing: MOTIC has been built for being demonstrated in Mid April 2012 at the largest worldwide fair in the Home Furnishing Sector and installed in Candy-Hoover show rooms.
  2. Exploratory research: investigating the exploitation of novel interactive technology for household appliances, identifying its effectiveness for customers, and understanding its industrial feasibility, to orient future decisions at a more strategic level.
MOTIC comprises a conventional oven that is integrated with a small display and a Kinect motion sensing device to enable users control cooking behavior thought body motion and touchless gestures.
