Start-up company WICIOT has launched what it’s calling the world’s first smart microwave cover. It’s called the °Cmicro and it reportedly measures the temperature of food and drink heated in the microwave in real time and sounds an alarm when it reached the desired temperature, defined by the user.

°Cmicro is designed to save time and make microwave cooking safer, healthier and more energy efficient, the company said. It is based on patented IoT technology and is compatible with all consumer microwaves, according to the release.
