Overview: The Nutrima Kitchen Scale concept combines piezoelectricity with smart and flexible technologies, making consumers more aware of food and it’s quality.

In the urbanizing world, we cannot take fresh, pure and healthy food as granted. Nowadays fresh and healthy ingredients are highly appreciated and the trend of cooking together is growing rapidly, yet even the most aware consumers cannot always tell whether the food they eat is fresh, healthy, or pure from toxins. This is a real concern especially for those with limited food supplies, funds, strict special diets or little children. Nutrima allows consumers to choose between alternatives by their actual qualities, allowing them to prepare the healthiest meal possible.

Before use, Nutrima is charged by bending repetitiously, creating enough electric charge for the scale to operate for the time needed.

Along with weight, it analyzes the food’s or ingredient’s weight, basic nutritional information (energy, protein, carbohydrates and fat content), freshness level, and cautions the user of high levels of the most common toxins, such as mercury. Nutrima can also be used as a traditional kitchen scale when measuring ingredients in a bowl.

Grow Your Own Proteins

Overview: Spirulina is a magic superfood that is suitable for all ages and stages in life. You can Wiki the details, so I’m moving on to the concept of this project called ‘Grow Your Own Proteins’. The idea is to have a workstation that allows you to grow and then 3D print Spirulina along with other food, so that you indulge in a healthy diet. This mini lab is equipped with all the tools to make it you an urban aqua-farmer.

Let’s get experimenting with these super cool algae! Hopefully we get to see more of this semi-finalist entry of the 2014 Electrolux Design Lab competition.
