in collaboration with NOKIA  |   topic: consumer digital health  |   2018   |   10 weeks

 

Nokia “kitchen mate” is a coaching device that gives realtime feedback about the impact of food on daily goals. 

Automatic recognition through weighing and visual scanning enable a comfortably easy tracking of calorie intake. 
With the data from the Nokia ecosystem, tailored recipes can be generated and guidance be provided.

 
 

Finding the target

 
 

Nokia digital is already a major player in the digital health market with products like activity trackers, smart watches, smart scales or blood pressure meters for the mainstream users.

Market segments like nutrition and habit change are highly relevant to a large target group and a great extension of Nokia's existing product range, making use of the existing product ecosystem.

Three individual scale pebbles are connected via bluetooth with the main device. This allows for maximum flexibility in size of what is to be weighed. Food can be automatically logged through weight and visual recognition. Interaction happens on the OLED display on top or through voice commands.

 
 
 
 

User journey

 
 
 

Several different users can be identified through face recognition. This allows each individual  to track and log food into their own personal diary.

 
 

The sideways facing camera recognizes food either through visual appearance or by scanning barcodes.
