IoT Solution to Running Out of Mentaiko

Fukuya Co., Ltd. has launched an IoT-based service to deliver mentaiko to houses. The unique service aims to solve the problem of running out of mentaiko at meal times. Consumers will store their mentaiko in a special box which calculates the weight of mentaiko and sends that data to the Fukuya office. The next delivery will be automatically arranged according to the pace of consumption. The system is named Fukuya IoT, taken from “Itsumo” (always), “Oishii” (delicious), and “Todoku” (deliver). The company seeks participants for a paid-test of the new service and accepts applications via the website until Apr. 15. Source: Fukuya Co., Ltd.
