Announcing Range, the smart thermometer from Supermechanical

Posted by Supermechanical (Creator)

It’s been almost two years since we launched Twine on Kickstarter; we couldn’t have done it without your help. Time has flown by since then, and now we’re excited to announce our new Kickstarter campaign!

Range. Smart thermometer, smarter cook.

Talking to a lot of our Twine users who cared about monitoring temperature, we realized that many of them made food and drink as both professionals and enthusiasts, and wanted to do it better. This struck a chord with those of us who don’t have the cooking intuition that our moms and grandmothers do, but love experimenting in the kitchen, especially with old family recipes.

With Range, you can take the guesswork out of cooking. Clip it on or stick it in and set an alert for the desired temperature with the Range app for iOS (we include presets for common uses). While you do the dishes or sip on a well-deserved glass of wine, Range graphs the temperature over time so you can learn and improve from each experiment. Once the temperature is reached and your roast has achieved perfection, Range tells you.

You’re already a pro at using your iPhone — Range can help you become a pro at kitchen craft as well. Soon, your home brew will be the talk of the neighborhood. Better throw a few steaks on the grill to feed all your newfound friends. Welcome to the internet of poultry. And beef, and beer, and chocolate...

Range has just launched on Kickstarter, and we wanted you to be among the first to know. (And we've included pledge levels with access to the API for the nerds.) If you’re interested, just follow the link above to check it out!

Thank you again for supporting us with Twine; we wouldn’t be here today without you!

      Looks pretty cool. I wish it was available for Android!
