Toshiba Corp., Mitsubishi Electric Corp., Sharp Corp., and Sanyo Electric Co. said that the system called "iReady," which stands for "Internet-ready" or "I am ready," will make network appliances from each of the makers compatible and help reduce development costs.

Proposed network appliances include ovens that cook dishes based on downloaded recipes and home-heating systems that can be adjusted from mobile phones, the companies said in a joint statement.

The companies are asking others to join in developing the technology, including possibilities for offering it overseas.

The first products are expected by next year, Sanyo Spokesman Ryan Watson said.

Such Net-linking home appliances are available on the market in Japan, but they have not yet caught on.

The "iReady" system will work through special adapter machines that fit into each appliance, the companies said. (Associated Press)
