Apron Alert is a wearable that tweets when a meal is being prepared and when it’s ready. The project was an experiment around “improving the communal kitchen experience.”

The Smart Apron was developed by Smart Design’s Interaction Lab and uses wireless XBee radios affixed to Lilypad Arduinos to create an apron that automatically notifies your diners when you’ve started cooking and when you’ve finished. The apron’s magnetic clasp initializes the signal that is sent to a server program that then relays that signal tosmartphones, tablets, and desktop computers following the cook wearing the apron. The entire set-up is lightweight, with the components discreetly stitched into the interior of the apron, and operates using a single AAA battery for power.
