Bendable Nutrima analyzes food for nutritional value, toxins and freshness

Designed by Finland-based Janne Palovuori for the 2013 Electrolux Design Lab, the Nutrima has been invented to keep food as safe as possible. How? Place food on this bendable kitchen scale and it calculates the nutritional values, possible toxins and freshness of your food and ingredients.

The scale combines ‘piezoelectricity’ with smart and flexible technologies and is charged by manpower, that is, a few bends of the product by your own muscles.

A ‘Nutrimapper’ app also accompanies the design, so users can ‘discover and share information about food and places to buy, encouraging others to favor the best places of purchase and avoid the disreputable ones’. While Nutrima didn’t take out the grand prize in the Electrolux Design Lab, this is just a peak into our future (and how innovative some people really are!)
