SALY / A salinity meter


The concept of this product is to help the elderly who struggle to season foods as they get less sensitive to the taste by providing a meter that measures the saltiness of foods. Having too many salty foods can cause diverse medical complications. This product is, therefore, designed to help people to avoid having too many salty foods. It provides intuitive data and solutions through LEDs and LCDs. If you put the device close to the foods and wait for a moment after cooking, it will show different light colors based on the level of salinity of the foods. Information can be delivered more easily by utilizing colors rather than numbers.
