Me: "Siri, I want to make chocolate chip cookies"
Siri: "Okay, I'm checking your refrigerator to see if you have enough ingredients to make chocolate chip cookies using your favorite recipe"
Siri: "You have enough ingredients. I am preheating the oven to 3xx degrees. Here's your favorite recipe for chocolate chip cookies." OR "You don't have enough ingredients. I will put a grocery list in your reminders." OR - if I buy groceries online: "You don't have enough ingredients. Would you like to go to the store or order the ingredients you're missing online?".

haha. I understand what he's saying. I often do this myself, think of different applications for software we have today. We have advanced so much in the past ten years, but there are so many places where we could be doing more...like the kitchen. I can't wait until the home is revolutionized. ;)

More likely of technology such as replicators from star trek being more feasible in the future.

Currently some fridges do remind you of items getting low so maybe that could be forwarded to your phone !

And current recipe apps are getting better.

With all the clever developers out there if demand dictated it then supply could follow !

Ah yes, Star Trek is kind of starting to become more reality than science fiction.

This is the future of the kitchen!

I don't even know what's in my fridge ... how would my phone know?

Probably because you used NFC to pay for your groceries. As a result, it knows exactly what you have. Create a recipe and it will know what you made.

Automations like this happen in the industrial setting all the time. Not necessarily voice activated.

whats the point of life if a machine is going to do everything for you?
Well, technology's main purpose is to make our lives EASIER. So, I suppose down the road a few decades if you needed to figure out what you wanted for dinner, told Siri that you wanted Italian, for example, and she pulled up a list of recipes, and from that list you picked out, say, Veal Saltimboca... Siri could figure out what recipes you have or require and place an online order for Peapod or some other type of delivery service and you'll have them delivered.

Sure, sometime down the road you may see HAL integration a la Space Odyssey where she'll set the oven too. Why not... It's really not that far fetched, all you need is essentially a central hub and network all your appliances into it, just like you would computers to a router.

.
...Might as well as just order food to be delivered to your house instead of having a machine order you ingredients and also have a machine cook it. And thats even if siri is a good chef..

Yup.

Example. Star trek flip communicator.
Many mobiles were styled in that fashion.
If I recall correctly, the designers of the first flip phones were deliberately using the communicator as their influence.

I also see a taser as basically a phaser on stun. And the iPad clearly is similar to the PADD from TNG.
