N1 Kitchen System

by LostEagle

Client: National Geographic Developed an interactive kitchen system for national geographic explorers including scientists, photographers and cinematographers. The idea is that this system may be shipped anywhere in the world in its crate. The crate can be moved around as necessary. The kitchen unfolds out of the crate. The primary interaction of the system is a self-proportioning cutting board. The user places food onto the cutting board they wish to portion, then they swipe how many people they are portioning for. The system visually divides up the cutting board surface using leds, then using a weight system helps the user portion the food by display whether the food is balanced or not. We actually built a working prototype of the cutting board. Involved using 3 arduino boards and a lot of wires. Project Timeline: 2 Weeks.
