Hip L.A. Chef Roy Choi Attempts to Make Google Glass Cool
Google Glass may be banned in bars across our fair city, but L.A. chef Roy Choi sees a different application in restaurant kitchens. The hipster chef responsible for the Korean tacos at the Kogi Truck made a propaganda-ish video for Google Glass showing the controversial technology's potential for finding, creating, and sharing recipes.
In the video, he scrolls through recipes for Irish food (seriously, is he just Googling "Irish recipes"? because that's a dangerous game) and then adapts one to make a St. Patrick's Day burrito that ultimately seems to have very little to do with Irish cuisine. No matter. Choi gives Glass a much-needed coolness boost, and shows how easy it is to use the hands-free device, especially when he takes a call from his mom while he's assembling the burrito.
Choi even went to far as to tell FastCompany that he could eventually see Glass used by chefs in professional kitchens, eliminating the need for tickets as chefs work from their own headset. Of course, it's probably only a matter of time before they're banned there, too. The only people we know more testy than bartenders are kitchen lifers.
