The latest buzz comes from Electrolux Design Lab, the company that leads in innovation in the appliance field. The company has revealed two hi-tech kitchen concepts for the tech-savvy generation: Rendez-vous, an interactive dining table and Volare, a fold-away artistic kitchen.

Rendez-vous (featured on the top) is an interactive table, the first of its kind that features a tabletop that embeds an inductive cooking system on the whole surface that uses sensor technology to break away from the dedicated cooking zones, so you can now place the pan anywhere on the tabletop and start cooking. The tabletop powers all your appliances without the use of a cord. A mobile phone or blender can be placed on the surface to charge or activate. Beneath the table are modular drawers that can hold a stove, refrigerator or almost any kitchen appliance depending on your needs. When dining, the drawers tuck away beneath the table. Another futuristic feature of this interactive dining-cum-cooking table is a virtual chef that guides the consumer through the cooking process, making it foolproof.
