Willy Wonka would soil his britches! Chocolateer Timothy Childs controls his entire chocolate factory with his iPhone!

Childs in the co-founder of Tcho along with Wired’s Louis Rossetto and Jane Metcalf.

Tcho (“technology” and “chocolate”) has a 30,000-square-foot factory on San Francisco’s waterfront.

It includes a chocolate “lab” where Childs cooks up new flavors. It’s all controlled by a custom iPhone app. “Using iPhone, I can actually log into each of the machines and control the times and the temperatures, turn them on and off,” he says.
