The SmartChef by Kaiju Studios hints at what designers imagine what the future's kitchens may look like. A finalist in Microsoft's Next-Gen PC competition, the SmartChef is comprised of a large bamboo cutting board with a slot to hold a portable touch-screen tablet with browsing and food scanning capabilities, alongside a built-in scale to weight what you're preparing for supper...

The SmartChef was designed with a holistic approach to the software and hardware, with the goal of creating a device to enhance, expand and inform the amateur chef's time in the world of food. Finding and sharing recipes, connecting with local producers and farmers markets, seasonal menu suggestions and diet guidance are all part of the tools and content the device can provide. The hardware consists of a bamboo surfaced cutting board element containing the SmartChef's computing and food scanning hardware, while a portable touch-screen tablet provides a kitchen-safe interface that can travel throughout the kitchen and home.
