Seeing as how Chef Sleeve is best know for its combo cutting board / iPad stand, the company’s latest product isn’t a huge leap. Sadly, the it didn’t actually have a prototype of its Smart Food Scale at its booth here at TechCrunch Disrupt, but we did get a chance to chat a bit about the product, which just had its Kickstarter page open up. The device is a food scale that communicates via Bluetooth with your iOS device. Put the food on, input what it is and it will send that information to your iPhone and iPad.
The app offers up USDA nutritional information, letting you keep track of calories, fat, vitamins, minerals and other information. The company’s also looking to expand the functionality of the software, to open things up to chefs and other folks who might appreciate such info. The Kickstarter page still has 29 days left to hit its $30,000 goal, and pledge of $79 or more will get you access to the scale. When it hits retail, it’ll run closer to $99.
