GOALS TO ACHIEVE

Understand habits and behaviors surrounding the preparation and cooking of meals. What does a typical cooking process look like? What do people have in their kitchen? What’s missing that they don’t readily have on hand? What technology is used (both in and out of the kitchen)?

Our goal was to create a product that stands out from our competitors by focusing our attention towards the following pillars:

- Personalization
- Food Recognition
- Data & Content
- Dynamic Cooking
- Nutrition Experience
- Tracking & Quantified Self

We know that utility alone is not enough to create a compelling experience. People have an intimate relationship with food that drive behaviors above the rational, technical and or everyday needs. Learning from primary research opportunities, research shows that we must include emotional connections to increase the chance of awareness, engagement and retention.

LESSONS LEARNED

It’s important to ask what kind of company we will become at Innit. Are we a technology company, or do we merely control the power of technology to deliver a more human-focused experience? It’s only through immersive recipe experiences that Innit can fulfill their consumer promise the machine learning technology that powers technology is unable to fulfill the promise of Innit. It’s the back end database that needs a front end design to actualize its power. Moving forward this is not sustainable, technology alone is not enough. Food is a universal human need to connect unlock a new level of scale.
