There are a lot of innovations around food but this one will be special for Telugites as the innovator is a Hyderabadi. Not only the people behind, everything put into the innovation has been purchased from the local stores. Meet ‘Idli Machine’ which serves you hot and fluffy idlis anytime around the clock!
CEO of Possibillion Technologies, Ayyappa Nagubandi along with his doctor wife Mahalakshmi Nagubandi has invented this Idli machine which dispenses idlis in less than 2 minutes round the clock. When asked about the hardship invested in, the couple said they actually worked on the prototype that dispenses Panipuri but ended up with idli which is a go-to and healthy food. “The machine you see now took us one and half years to innovate and the idea behind is to serve hot and healthy food to techies and workers who have night shifts,” said Ayyappa. Upon ordering on the screen and the digital payment through QR code scan, robotic arms serve 2 idlis with chutney and sambhar which can be seen through the glass window.
Ayyappa didn’t settle down with this machine which took a team of 15 members and cost about Rs 80 lakh. He is now on plans to place a cooker inside the machine which would reduce the logistics cost. “Almost 30 MNCs have come forward to install these machines in their offices,” said Ayyappa. With made in India fever all around, this innovation with the least possible investment will no doubt stand as a benchmark for the aspiring innovators.
