A team of students from Brown University have created a smart kiosk that helps you zest up each meal with a set of recommended spices. The kiosk, named Zest, is meant to make cooking with spices more accessible to all.

Here’s how it works: users place an unseasoned dish in front of the machine, which will recognize the food and provide a list of recipe cards, with the required spices lighting up on an adjacent spice rack. Recipes show recommended spices in pictures, as well as how many shakes of each spice to add, and the spiciness level of each recipe. Zest founders envisions it situated inside a college dining hall, where meals are often conservatively seasoned. Students could experiment with machine recommended recipes, giving them the knowledge to use spices liberally in the post-grad world.
