When it comes to cooking you need to be prepared for one thing. You’re going to be measuring a lot. Any recipe, any serving size, any food activity means you’re going to have to scoop, spread, spoon, and sort a wide variety of ingredients. A cup of this, a tablespoon of that, a half-cup of whatever… it’s pretty complicated, even if you’re following a recipe. Plus, there’s always the complication of needing a dozen different scoopers and hoping they are actually accurate. Fortunately, there’s help on the way. The Smoon is a self-measuring digital spoon that follows recipes as you scoop out your ingredients.

Okay, so you can’t exactly buy a smoon right now, but the fact that there’s a working prototype suggests that there may be a future in the smoon after all. The fact that it can sync up to a recipe as you go through the measurements is very impressive, as is its ease of scooping and leveling. I really love that design of scoop, though if I were changing it, I’d make it so the smoon would also self-scrape with the push of a button. If I want a half-cup of peanut butter, the smoon should make that happen as precisely as possible.
