TOKYO — Jorudan Co., Ltd. will adopt Fuji Xerox’s cloud service SkyDesk Media Switch in a free app for its new cooking magazine, Kirei Shoku. A secret recipe will appear on the smartphone screen when a photo of the meal in the magazine’s supplementary booklet is taken with a smartphone camera. Kirei Shoku will be issued quarterly from March 2.

SkyDesk Media Switch is Fuji Xerox’s cloud service that delivers multimedia contents such as videos and websites to smartphones when a user takes a photo of a particular marker embedded in an image printed on paper with their smartphone camera.

In Kirei Shoku’s supplementary booklet, which will feature 30 recipes focused on dietary education supervised by the cuisine professional Yukio Hattori, only the recipe for the main dishes are printed. However, by taking a photo of the meal using the app, secret recipes for their side dishes will appear on the smartphone screen. Additionally, recipes for the main dishes are also shown on the smartphone screen. Therefore, with this app, readers will be able to choose recipes from the smartphone screen and, for example, go shopping for the ingredients by looking at the smartphone screen without having to take any notes.

The app can be downloaded from Google Play of Google Inc. and App Store of Apple Inc.
