DIGIT Weekly News Roundup: August 11th 2017

  • You know the sheer misery of measuring salt? The grinding (sorry) tedium of scooping, pouring, or tipping small amounts of sodium chloride out of a container, with all of the heart-attacks and strokes which accompany incorrect measurement? You know how measuring your salt has always lacked accompanying music? You know how you always thought there should be an alternative? A digital solution, which would free you from the pointless tedium of your silent, salt-measuring agony? Now there is. A digital, app-connected salt measuring device which combines the best parts of an Amazon Echo and a container full of salt. Meet SMALT, your new music-playing, sodium-counting, salt-measuring digital chum. It’s more than a dispenser, it’s an interactive centrepiece. (NOTE: SMALT does not grind salt. SMALT only measure and dispenses salt. Take your artisanal rock salt and measure/dispense it some other way, you luddite!)
