Why trust your senses when it’s more fun with technology? We use for instance thermochromic ink to tell us if our beverages are cold yet. It is fun and a great way to interact with consumers. Measuring is exciting and there is a small control freak inside of us all.
Now this thingy is really cool. You put this stick into your beverage and hey presto you get a reading of your drink status. Israel based Valiber has developed a hi-tech “spoon” that can measure not only the temperature but also the sweetness of a beverage. This is great but why stop here?
Their spoons will actually soon be able to provide a measurement for other taste sensations such as how sour, how salty, and how bitter your drinks are.
It also fits so well with our obsession to measure and calculate our other activities such as walking, running, sleeping and more. We could probably live without a fitness band, but why take the risk.
The measuring spoon comes handy when you want to know more about your thirst quencher. But you can on the other hand just as well trust your senses and read the label on the packaging…
