A dedicated kitchen information computer is something that I have thought should have been on the market a while back. Pandigital is doing exactly that with their Kitchen Technology Center.
The center is a touchscreen device that gives you preloaded recipes, a browser for more recipes, a music player, a HD video and TV player, and a photo display. The part that makes it work is the touch screen, since often in a kitchen you will not have your hands free enough for a keyboard. I just hope that the unit is clean friendly, at least if you are anything like me during the construction of a recipe.
The specs on the digital kitchen aid include 1 GB of memory and 15 inch 1280×720 resolution screen. The Pandigital Kitchen Technology Center will cost $400, and it should be available in August.
