Chocolate Factory Controlled by iPhone: Willy Wonka Would Approve
March 3rd, 2011
I like my iPhone and if I could do my job from anywhere using the iPhone, I would. This must be what drove some geeks at a chocolate maker in San Francisco to have an app developed that allows them to control all essential factory and lab functions using the iPhone.
The company is called TCHO and it makes the dark and milk chocolate that Starbucks sells (for more than it’s worth) as well as making its own branded products. The CEO and creative director of the company is Louis Rossetto, the same geek that co-founded Wired Magazine.

The app means that the company chocolate-maker Zohara Mapes can perform some of the tasks she needs to do from home on the weekends rather than having to come in. Too bad the app can’t remotely whip up some s’mores, now that would be impressive.
