About

Research Kitchen has been founded by two engineers with a clear view on science, products and markets. They are dedicated to products with high added value that make a difference in daily life and strive to make these products available to people anywhere.

The Research Kitchen is based at the
Radex Innovation Centre, Delft, The Netherlands.

Products

RoboMind

RoboMind trains Computational Thinking: an essential 21st century skill. By programming a virtual robot anyone can learn about logic, automation and technology. Logical thinking is directly connected to solving real world challenges. RoboMind is currently available in 25 languages, has proven to be an effective and motivating tool, and is used all over the world. Please take a look at the dedicated website: www.robomind.net

Development of a Visual Aid

Currently we are developing a new instrument to help visually impaired people to perceive the environment. As the product develops into maturity, we will provide more detailed information on this site. For questions, feel free to contact us at info@researchkitchen.net.

RoboMind Academy

The fully integrated online tablet proof version of RoboMind. Here you can get started with programming right away. At home or at school, on any device, and anytime anywhere. Interactive challenges guide students and teachers through the courses. A virtual mentor validates solutions, helps with problems and guides students through the courseware. Students can thus gain validated Computational Thinking diplomas.

Expertise

At the Research Kitchen, we bring together the newest technologies, algorithms and software solutions (the ingredients) to create high-tech applications that matter. In other words: cooking with science to create results that make a difference in daily life. We extend the senses for the visually impaired and provide educational tools for the younger.

We have in-depth knowledge about the following areas:

Artificial Intelligence

We have an extensive track record in automating complex tasks by applying and extending algorithms from computer vision, pattern recognition and machine learning.

Physical Computing

We develop interactive physical systems including the necessary software and hardware. For instance in projects which extend the senses for better awareness and decision support.

Technology Education

We are the creators of RoboMind, a unique and successful product which is used worldwide to motivate young students to choose a technical career.
