Panasonic Unveils Smart Microwave With Richmond Membership Setting
In front of a packed house at the annual Kitchen Technology Convention in Tokyo today, electronics giant Panasonic has sent shockwaves through the microwave manufacturing community by introducing a cutting edge smart appliance with an automated Richmond membership cooking setting.
“We had too many microwaves sent in for repairs after over-cooking the memberships throughout the 2016 season,” said Panasonic CEO Kazuhiro Tsuga. “We’re responding to our customer’s needs and providing a seamless experience where the Richmond supporter base can easily incinerate their membership cards after a poor game or two.
Programmed to recognise the dimensions and weight of the thin plastic cards, the smart microwaves can sense the moment a Richmond membership is placed onto the glass turntable plate and will automatically heat it to the temperature required for absolute destruction.
In addition to this Detect-and-Zap™ technology, the microwave is built to withstand one thousand cycles of having toxic melted plastic coat its interior surfaces, and connects with Richmond’s membership office through wi-fi to automatically order a new membership for the following year.
