Show notes

Pop quiz: what does the term “Milky Way” make you think of? Probably many things, like the galaxy or a candy bar, but what about breast milk? Or even IoT? Believe it or not, in the story of our new podcast episode of From KNOW-HOW to WOW these have more in common than you’d think: “Many mothers in Vietnam are facing the challenge of squaring their work with the wish to keep breastfeeding beyond maternity leave,” says Bosch senior delivery manager Dinh Thi Kim Thoa. That’s why she and her team in Ho Chi Minh City have developed Milky Way, a breast milk delivery service between the mother’s workplace and the baby’s daycare. The solution is based on a cooling box with smart Bosch sensor technology. A combined humidity, temperature and pressure sensor helps ensure both the freshness and safety of the milk. Bosch expert Thomas Block will share countless intriguing details about this 2.5 mm small Sensortec wonder.

Speaking of small wonders, we have a special announcement. Here on Earth, on the outskirts of the Milky Way, a new star is developing: Melena is pregnant! Whoop!!! This is her final show before she goes on maternity leave. All the best to the small family and thank you for 14 awesome shows! Starting in September, the great Shuko will co-host with Geoff. Welcome, Shuko!
