Italian Kitchenware Manufacturer to Release Android Hub

In an odd but slightly cool move, the Italian Kitchenware producer Alessi is releasing an Android powered home hub for the kitchen.  Designed by Stefano Giovannoni, the AlessiTab as it is called is a tablet (surprise, surprise) unit that will display video, pictures and other information from social media outlets.  The video below gives a demonstration of possible uses for the AlessiTab. Be warned, there is no sound for some reason in the video.

This seems like a neat toy, but not sure if it is something that a family must have in their home.  Now, if they decide to include some remote functionality for home theater or other things in a wired home, you might spark some interest. I do have to admit that having video demonstrations of how to execute some recipes would be very handy, but it is nothing that I cannot do on a laptop now. It does beg the question as to why this company is releasing this appliance, but whatever the reason, it is cool to see Android in faraway corners of industry!
