With Mykie, Home Connect presents a concept that will not only make your daily chores easier, but also enrich it. Mykie stands for “My kitchen elf” – a personal assistant supporting you in your tasks and kitchen routine. Voice recognition allows you to operate Mykie through voice commands or alternatively via its touch display. Mykie answers questions, gives advice and provides support. It has, for example, instant insights about the food that is stored in the refrigerator, how much longer the roast should remain in the oven and even has the weather forecast for the weekend. The connected Mykie allows you to conveniently manage a whole range of home appliances. In addition, Mykie provides attractive services that allow you to organize your daily routine more efficiently or to interact with your friends and family. Mykie brings their users together virtually - joint cooking or the exchange of recipes gives you a new, exciting cooking experience. Get to know Mykie and learn about the vision Home Connect is pursuing with Mykie, the digital assistant for your kitchen.

Mykie can do more than just talk
Mykie interacts with a wide range of emotions and reactions via voice and head movements as well as gestures and light signals that vary according to the situation. Thanks to the integrated camera and real-time communication, people are able to share their cooking experience even when they are far away from each other.

Mykie means maximum flexibility and convenience for its users, because all kind of questions and requests that arise during kitchen chores can be clarified and fulfilled with Mykie’s help. There are new and astonishing ways to get your work done. And why shouldn’t it be fun, too? You can access voice-controlled music or other entertainment offers. And if you are looking for a competent and comprehensible cooking support then Mykie provided you guidance through step-by-step video sequences of selected recipes. Mykie adapts to your speed and reacts to your signals, so that you can leave your hands in the dough. Alternatively, complementary services, such as vast recipe collections or suggestions from online cook shows, can be obtained. Mykie can order groceries online and have them delivered home, in case any ingredients are missing. Finally, the recommended application settings from the recipe are sent by Mykie directly to the connected home appliances, for perfect result.
