industrial design podcast
We are excited to have Dave Joseph on the podcast. Dave talks about getting into ID and graduating right when the recession started. He chats about his time working for Contigo and MNML. We talk about Dave's current endeavour, a smartware startup called Ovie.
TOP 10 ENTRIES FROM THE #RENDERWEEKLY RAZOR CHALLENGE
“Dave Joseph’s razor features a Y frame too, but captures a completely different spirit. Warm, inviting, and friendly, Dave’s razor design features a plastic body that’s absolutely rendered to perfection. The material, its roughness, self-reflections, and color are simply spectacular. Modeled with TSplines in Fusion and rendered in Keyshot.”

Ovie has launched one of the most innovative new home products, taking on a challenge many may not even think about – food storage. It’s brought intelligence to food storage and they’re using KeyShot to communicate the design. We caught up with Dave Joseph, Co-Founder and CDO at Ovie Smarterware, to learn more.

Ovie, a Chicago based tech startup, has combined hardware, software, and machine learning to create a smart food storage system that will eliminate waste and change the way people eat, save, and shop for food. Founders Ty, Dave, Stacie sat down with the Big Data Beard to talk about how their innovative, IoT-enabled food storage solution can help solve the massive problem of food waste around the world.
This absolutely beautiful and stunningly simply product aims to integrate into your smart home seamlessly with Alexa integration and a big data powered app that not only monitors your fridge inventory, but also helps guide you to recipes that combine the food already in your fridge. The Ovie team just wrapped up a super successful Kickstarter campaign is looking to start shipping product in early 2019.
Hear first hand what it’s like to found an IoT startup; from taking the leap out of comfortable employment to the epic experience of showcasing your creation at CES.
SMART TAGS WILL ALERT YOU WHEN YOUR FOOD’S LOSING FRESHNESS!
Food wastage is quite a serious matter. We buy things, forget we’ve bought them and throw them away after weeks because they’ve gone stale. It only makes sense that we rely on AI to combat food wastage, and the Ovie Smarterware wants to do just that. The Smarterware eco-system revolves around smart tags, that store the nature of the item, its purchase date, and its expiry date. These tags fit into either Ovie’s Smarterware container or the Smarterware clip, and keep track of what you’re buying as well as when you’re buying them. When items start sitting around too long, the Smarterware clips ping you either on your phone or via your smart speaker, not only letting you know your veggies/meats are going stale, but they also browse through recipes for you to use those ingredients in!
Using a Smarterware tag is as simple as tagging your produce on Ovie’s app before storing it in your fridge. A Smarterware hub plugged into an outlet outside the fridge allows for communication between the Smarterware tags and your smartphone/smart-speaker, while the Smarterware tags themselves communicate with you visually through the medium of a colored ring that goes from green to yellow to red as your produce ages.
Working with everything from veggies to meats, and from dairy to poultry, the Ovie Smarterware uses IoT and AI to solve two problems. One, the problem of food wastage, and two, the problem of not knowing what to cook based on what you have in your fridge!
