This is an incredible concept (and currently it is just a concep i’m afraid) that will certainly add some convenience to the kitchen. It`s an integrated scale within a state of the art chopping board. This allows a person to both cut and measure ingredients on the same surface with very little extra effort. Simply put, it precisely reduces the steps of preparation, dishes to clean, and time wasted. There has been a transformative trend in cooking based around the science of food. Central to this is the idea that precise measurement leads to more possibilities for new flavors. Recipes will become more demanding, requiring simple ways to be precise in the kitchen. Technology feasibility: (estimated timeline for research and development) Now: Manufacturing methods to embed the following electronics into cutting board material.
Here`s an idea as to where cutting board technology is going
1-3 years: Strain guage sensor grid technology that enables precise measurements to be embedded in a substrate.
1-3 years: Low-voltage PV (Photovoltaics) that would provide suffecient power.
1-5 years: “Electronic ink” display technology that does not use light and can be embedded into substrates.
