Panasonic has announced a collaboration with Drop, a leading smart kitchen platform, which will see the release of microwave ovens utilizing Drop's guided cooking recipe format.

"Meal preparation can be a daily challenge," says Fumi Usuki, IoT business development senior manager, Panasonic. "This collaboration offers an articulated solution, providing adjustable step-by-step instruction and an additional value proposition to consumers using our appliances." 

With customized navigation, users will have access to features like resizing recipes or offering substitutions for missing ingredients. 

"We're excited to work with a company like Panasonic and find its focus on food and thoughtful design inspiring," says Ben Harris, co-founder and chief executive officer, Drop. "We share a vision for a unified experience in the smart kitchen, and this collaboration is the first step in showing how that can happen for the consumer."

In addition to its Drop collaboration, Panasonic has recently ventured into multiple other partnerships. Most notably, the company used its projection technology to aid Disney in the theme park’s newest attraction, “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.” Another partnership saw the same projection technology used to create “Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway.”
