Hello Egg Bot Set to Automate Meal Planning, Grocery Shopping

January 4, 2017

Announced late last year as a quirky bot sidekick for your kitchen, Hello Egg was more novelty than functionality. Initially, it was part traditional egg timer, part Apple's Siri or Amazon Alexa, and part YouTube video machine with a tiny screen. However, today at CES, RnD64, the team behind the egg, announced a new focus of the product: artificial intelligence.

Eggspert, Hello Egg's web and mobile application, will allow users to automate their weekly meal prep planning and even order groceries. For those of us who endure the pains of meal prep every Sunday, we know all too well how much time can be consumed by simply planning out what to make.

According to RnD64, Eggspert will make it easy to plan weekly meals based on dietary preferences and also adjust to unplanned events. This builds upon the initial solution that would have Hello Egg act as a device to inspire you to cook more at home, cook with step-by-step instructions, and gain access to a 24/7 support team of cooking experts.

“The initial tests of Hello Egg went significantly well and the feedback we received after the product announcement has confirmed the need for a dedicated smart cooking assistant,” said Dmytro Shemet, CEO of RnD64. “With Eggspert, we apply AI not only to facilitate the user’s kitchen experience but also to analyze their nutritional needs and optimize their cooking process on every level.”

At the time of writing, Hello Egg is not yet available for pre-order and the price has not been listed; however, it is said to ship in Q1 of this year. RnD64 is also the company behind the popular Petcube hardware we reviewed late last year.
