The Honeywell Kitchen Computer. It retailed, in 1969, for a mere $10,600.
None were ever sold.

Her outfit is more suitable for doing macramé than for being the chef of the future, though! Maybe the idea was to save time for macramé and spinning lumpy pottery and smoking doobies.

Wow, how much was $10,600 in 1969?

$61,335, about four times the cost of the average home. I'm guessing it would have helped resale value though.

Obviously everyone realized it would be more economical to go out for dinner every night. I'm sure it was a publicity gimmick and doubt they had any expectation of selling one.
