MAID, a smart kitchen assistant & oven which not only knows what to cook but also how to cook, has reached its target of raising $50,000 on Kickstarter in less than a week after going live on the platform.
The startup has just raised over $58,000 with 191 backers supporting it.
MAID is developed by SectorQube, a startup based out in Startup Village, Kerala.
MAID is the first microwave oven that brings crowd-sourced recipes directly to the kitchen through its ever growing recipe store via the internet. It also has a recipe store with a recipe builder application which sets a standard for recipe creation and then these recipes are made available in MAID after basic testing.
It also supports features like streaming cookery shows, acting as a personal dietician, voice instructions and visuals to prepare the ingredients and much more.
Recently, smart fitness band GOQii had also raised angel funding from WhatsApp’s Neeraj Arora, Marco Argenti, VP Amazon Web Services – Mobile. Earlier this year Fin, a wearable ring shaped device, raised $100k on the crowdfunding site Indiegogo as well.
