Kitchen Scale Doubles as a Media Player: Watch Videos While You Cook

by Paul Strauss

Say you want to watch a TV program or a video of a recipe while you cook? While you could always bring your smartphone or tablet into the kitchen, there’s always a chance you’ll get it wet or get food stuck on or inside of it. Here’s another way to watch video content while you’re in the kitchen, without fear of damaging your precious gadgets.


This unique scale not only can weigh your food, but it’s got a 4.3″ (480×272) LCD screen and a media player built into its surface. It’s also got a speaker for the audio portion. The scale can play back media in .AVI, MPEG 1/2/4, or DiVX formats or stills in .JPG format. All you need to do is load your files onto a MicroSD card and insert it into the scale, and you’ll be all set.


The scale itself isn’t waterproof, but most digital kitchen scales shouldn’t be submerged anyhow. Its also got a built-in rechargeable battery and can be juiced up via its Mini USB port. A 2 to 3 hour charge should give you about 2 hours of video playback – plenty for most meals I’ve ever cooked.

Too bad I can’t have one of these on hand in time to cook for Thanksgiving this week, but I doubt I could get it shipped all the way from Japan or China by then.
