An operator checks the electric power control panel for the smart city project in Kashiwa, Japan, on July 7, 2014.

Since last year, the team over at June have been perfecting the oven to cook foods beyond steak. Indeed, it can now recognize a selection of foods that include bagels, cookie dough, salmon, leg of lamb, asparagus and more. Indeed, we had a demo where we inserted a couple of bagel slices and as the oven recognized it, it instantly popped up a menu choice on how we wanted it toasted. And even if it doesn't know what it is, you can always enter in the temperature and cooking time yourself, just like a regular oven. What sets the June apart is its smarts.
