We can use our smartphones and tablets to search the web for recipes and cooking techniques while in the kitchen. With Chop-Syc , we can have all that information right on the kitchen cutting board.
A concept by Sustainable Product Design student Siobhan Andrews, Chop-Syc is a digital chopping board that can connect to the internet via WiFi and display healthy recipes, recommended daily allowances or RDA, portion sizes, and other information.
When not in use, the board looks like a regular wooden chopping board. The cutting board is made out of scratch-proof glass and can be powered up by placing it on a rechargeable mat.
Chop-Syc was chosen as the winner of the #GetItDownOnPaper competition by Sharp Laboratories of Europe. Winning the competition gave Andrews, who is currently studying at Falmouth University, a two-month paid internship at Sharp Labs.
