2015 International CES: ARCHOS and Freshub jointly launch 'ARCHOS Kitchen Screen' for connected grocery shopping at home
By ARCHOS 2015-01-07
ARCHOS, a pioneer in Android Devices, and Freshub, a connected-kitchen Israeli start-up, are launching today an end-to-end service that enables consumers to instantly add items to a digital shopping cart using a kitchen-tailored version of the ARCHOS Smart Home Tablet, called ARCHOS Kitchen Screen.
The ARCHOS Kitchen Screen makes it easy for consumers to add a choice of thousands of products to their digital shopping cart throughout the week by simply waving the desired item in front of the screen, or via voice commands. The device also includes a touchscreen that suggests product alternatives if a wanted item is unavailable, as well as customized electronic coupons.
Loic Poirier, CEO at ARCHOS noted, “As leaders in the Connected Objects field, we are proud to work with Freshub to connect the kitchen. Our Smart Home vision now helps people to keep their kitchens filled up thanks to the world’s first connected device offering an instant grocery retail link. This game-changing connectivity will considerably alter the way people shop and will shape the future retailing experience.”
Iri Zohar, Founder and CEO at Freshub noted, “When we set out to deliver on the connected kitchen, Freshub knew that to succeed we’d need strong collaboration between our service, CE manufactures and online grocers. We were gratified that a Tier I market leader like ARCHOS chose to work with us, and to validate our vision. We see the connected kitchen as way to help consumers live healthier lifestyles, and to make thoughtful decisions about what they eat by eliminating barriers to shopping. This pilot is a great leap in that direction.”
The ARCHOS Kitchen Screen offers consumers a variety of kitchen, family and smart home apps including recipes, cooking timers, streaming music, safety cameras, digital picture frame, clock & weather and more.
