Orb is a universal replacement stove knob that aims to make kitchens smarter. To tackle the problem of users forgetting about their stove being on, the design uses a series of “whistles” to periodically remind the user to check on the items being cooked. In the event that the user has become distracted and forgotten, the device will automatically rotate to the off position at the end of the cycle. Attachable to any stove, old or new, it transforms a basic appliance into a smart one!
