Three questions to the project team

What was the particular challenge of the project from a UX point of view?
The kitchen scene is actually a harsh environment, and the cooking process is accompanied by the release of water vapor and oil fumes. This requires us to focus on the cleaning and hygiene issues in the use of products, and to this end, put more effort in the product shape and process requirements. At the same time, the mechanical movement of the product and the busy kitchen environment strictly require us to set a variety of safe distances for the product movement and present an intuitive UI design, so that the operator can clearly and safely use the intelligent cooking robot in the busy.

What was your personal highlight in the development process? Was there an aha!-moment, was there a low point?
In fact, the cleaning and hygiene problems in the product experience have brought great challenges and limitations to our product design in the early stage. However, in the middle of the product development process, we only realized the safe distance of mechanical movement, which made our products face a lot of changes and even start from scratch, but in the end, our whole team overcame these difficulties through step by step efforts.

Where do you see yourself and the project in the next five years?
We believe that in the current kitchen situation, PMax has achieved the dual combination of excellent product experience and design innovation, and will also promote a new round of development for the emerging smart kitchen cooking robot industry. It is believed that our product exploration will help this industry to emerge more good cooking robot products, and we will also upgrade our products in this process.
