See what’s cooking!

We love dreaming up new way, surprising technology solutions and drawing our inner child. With the lab, our focus is on fun, creativity, charity, or simply fixing every day issues.

Our team is encouraged to tinker, fiddle and play with hardware and think through own ideas or make them reality. Some ideas are odd – some are awesome. But it’s always fun.

LANC Control

LANC Control

I love my Nikon, and I have it for the last decade. It’s not fully digital. It used to be great technology, from photography perspective it still is. But then, no remote control, no connection to the smart phone, no hokus-pokus but local focus …. 🙁 But hey, wait a minute, what if….? I could use this LANC interface for something SMART? Could I not bridge LANC to BT to APP? Do some nice app and get my camera retrofitted to SMART?

Simple:
YES you can. See your camera for LANC support – see us for how to get it digital!

“Dr. Greenthumb” 2017

“Dr. Greenthumb” 2017

Yes, at aconno we are gr8 in technology but 2 nerdy 4 flowers – we don’t know if they suffer from being fed with “Club Mate” or if we just forget to water them – or is it a lack oh minerals? We don’t know. So from now on it’s either plastic plants (Hell No!) or we have to seriously fix this.

And welcome to “Dr. Greenthumb” – hell yes we think about the good old days with Cypress Hill and how important proper plant growing was! But now we take it to the next level: measuring water, humidity, light, temperature and the ph-value. Together with an app you can now keep track of your plants, get alerts, sos or …it’s dead Jim! To get insane in the brain we were thinking about adding Image recognition for plant growth and AI to make it perfect – but someone will need to fund this 😉

Smart Steaker – BBQ2.0

Smart Steaker – BBQ2.0

Meatering not metering – get the core temperature of your steak straight onto your smartphone. Hi, we really love BBQ – best with the team. But then when the fun starts – no one is excited to take care of the BBQ. Medium? Well? Well done? – Too Late! So how to get your piece of meat right? Well, it can be measured! And what can be measured can be digitalised and come to your smartphone. Welcome “Smart Steaker” – get your steak connected now! (And no, from inside your Weber Grill & BBQ you cannot send Bluetooth nicely – remember Faraday? Remember: HOT!)

So? We connected a wired thermometer from the heart of your steak, to our hand crafted wooden Bluetooth-Steaker-Beacon, attached with Neodym magnets to the base.

From now on it’s good by to bad steaks – set the desired stage in your app, follow the development of your steak on the BBQ with a beer in your hand, right from your smartphone – and get alerted when it gets ready. From now on your only excuse to bad steaks is too much good beer 😉
