Coupons.com Incorporated today announced the availability of KitchMe for
Glass, a first-of-its-kind recipe and meal preparation app for Google
Glass™. The free app is immediately available at www.kitchme.com/googleglass.
“KitchMe for Glass brings Glassware to the kitchen in a unique app that
helps people do something the majority of families do several times a
week, cook,” said Steven Boal, CEO of Coupons.com Incorporated. “KitchMe
for Glass is the most recent example of our long-standing innovation in
web and mobile applications that help consumers do everyday things—like
cook and shop. Wearable technology is a huge opportunity and where
better to focus than in the kitchen where so much of what we do today
can be augmented by technology.”
KitchMe for Glass leverages the recipe and meal-prep features from the
recently released KitchMe.com web application. Key capabilities of the
KitchMe for Glass app include:

Additional features, such as the ability to snap photos of cooked meals
and share them with friends, are already in development for the next
version of KitchMe for Glass. Future development could also include the
ability to use voice recognition to fully navigate the app so that
getting cooking information hands-free could become a reality.
