There are a number of tablets that, according to the manufacturers, are ideal for the kitchen. Think of the Archos Chefpad or Sony Xperia Tablet S . Sharp goes a step further and has a tablet processed in a cutting board.
The original idea for this model comes from Siobhán Andrews, a student at Falmouth University. He found the use of a tablet in the kitchen impractical and even dangerous. For this reason he sent a sketch of the idea for the research department of Sharp, where it went to work. The result is the Chup-Syc, a cutting board with integrated tablet to encourage healthy eating.
The idea behind the cutting board is that the user cook some helpful tips for fast and healthy, and get different recipes for a healthy meal presented. When selecting a recipe, the ingredients are adjusted to the number of persons that the table is to be seated. There is even an instrument for the perfect amount of spaghetti, and scales used in the cutting board.
The tablet is connected to the Wi-Fi network allowing the user to find several recipes, and thereby kept what you’ve cooked. Altogether, this according to a Sharp contribute in reducing obesity. However, currently the cutting board still a prototype and it is not yet known when the product is actually for sale.
