The Sook Cut is a three-part concept by Adam Brodowski that makes delicious meals out of ingredients you may not know how to combine. The cutting board (Sook Cut) contains a moisture sensor, scale, and electronic tongue to determine what food is being prepped, then sends that information to the Sook Touch to generate a delicious recipe!
The Sook Touch is a touch sensitive display that lists recipes, detailed nutrional information, and stores a library of ingredients. You can touch and drag ingredients to build custom recipes and save them for upload to website.
The final piece of the puzzle is the Sook Dock. Not only does it charge the Sook Cut and Touch appliances, it also works as an RFID scanner to identify what foods are nearby and add them to the Sook Touch database.
Of course this wouldn’t be an Electrolux design entry if it didn’t embrace how we might communicate in the future. When you’ve finished cooking, the Sook Touch takes a snapshot of your creation, then syncs with a social cooking site. Apply tags and even invite other users to comment and tweak your recipes.
The entire system sounds incredibly complicated. I could never imagine my parents using it but then again, this was designed for the internet generation. It’s quite exciting to imagine a future where foods are so carefully organized and categorized for any consumer to use. Envisage how our foods will be prepared, how it’ll affect nutrition and perhaps the quality of life. Imagine how it could make decent cooks out of even the most kitchen challenged.
