cutting scale

cutting scale by jim termeer from usa

designer's own words:

This concept is a cutting board that has an integrated scale within a defined area on it's surface. 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 tranformative trend in cooking based around the science of food. Central to this is the idea that precise measument leads to more possibilities for new flavors. Recipies will become more demanding, requiring simple ways to be precise in the kitchen.

Technology feasibility: (estimated timeline for research and devleopment)

Now: Manufacturing methods to embed the following electronics into cutting board material.

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.

  • Wow, comments 7 years after it hit the blog- I never would have guessed that. I am also wondering why this isn’t on the market, in this form or some other. Guess I have to take another look. -Jim

  • I am working in a kitchenware manufacturer and i think this idea has potential and make sure the price is affordable.
