This may not sound terribly geekish or useful, but a new chopping board design by Jess Giffin and Tim Termeer is really quite the thing. Everyone on the block is talking about it, and they have good reason. This board has an in-built scale that can be seen on the picture, so you can be chopping away and then have a peak to see how much you have before throwing it in to your pan. This technology is really cutting edge, but it's a shame it doesn't come in black. Then again, they'd probably charge more. The board measures 10" x 15" and could be seen displayed at kitchen exhibitions worldwide. If this doesn't quite take your fancy, perhaps cake would.
That's right. I'm talking about cake on a technology website. I think I can be excused, taking into account that the cake is based on a video game. A Super Marrio Wedding cake infact. According to one of the wedding guests, the cake tasted rather 'Dense and suggary. Very candy-like, but not too sweet.' A good description! Click here to see for yourself. Now I want one of these for my Birthday!
