Smart kettles, tea makers, and coffee machines have been around for a while. The Appkettle is another app-enabled kettle that lets you monitor and temperature from its companion app in real-time. It pairs with your smartphone to offer smart scheduling. You also get to save your preferences.
The Appkettle is WiFi-enabled, but the developers are working on a cloud-based solution to let you remote connect to your kettle, share preferences, and more. You can find out more about this smart kettle on Kickstarter.
