College Student Creates DIY Bluetooth Sous-Vide

An industrious MIT student created his very own sous-vide, to act as a final project. Also, it's completely wireless and uses mystical Bluetooth technology.

Sous-vide cookers are something of a holy grail among foodies. High quality home units can cost thousands of dollars and mid-grade units clock in at a few hundred. There's just something about a piece of meat brought to temperature in a sous-vide, and then finished in a hot pan, that simply cannot be replicated. Why spend all of that cash, however, when you can make a tech forward model out of spare parts? That's what one MIT student just did for a final project.

Matthew Arbesfeld spent around $100 on parts to create a completely functional, including an accurate thermometer, sous-vide system. Also, it must be noted, it goes even further than some restaurant level units. His sous-vide is completely wireless, being controlled via Bluetooth. To show the efficacy of his device, he cooked a steak and devoured it like the visionary he is. He's also used it to cook burgers, eggs and potatoes. The holy trinity.

If you ever find yourself in a tiny dorm room with some raw meat and a bunch of electronic components, you know what to do.
