Meet Mykie short for “My Kitchen ELF”, is a digital robot similar to smart speakers like Amazon Echo or Google Home: You can use voice controls to ask Mykie questions such as, “What’s the weather today?” It will also be able to control connected Bosch appliances like dishwashers and ovens.
Mykie’s main goal is to help you cook. You can search for recipes with voice commands or on Mykie’s control screen, and Mykie will project videos of someone preparing the recipe on your kitchen wall.
In addition to voice control, Mykie has a touchscreen you can poke at, but its most useful feature has to be a powerful little projector in his butt.
Mykie is a product concept right now, and as such, Bosch isn’t sharing any information on price or availability.
