The tablet that makes everything go chop-chop
The Almighty Board is the ultimate digital kitchen sous-chef. It not only serves as a cutting surface, but it also displays recipes, weighs ingredients and lets you know if it has been properly sterilised to avoid any cross-contamination.
Why it matters
This kitchen tablet is probably the dream kitchen tool for amateur chefs. As the tablet market keeps on growing, will we see this type of technology integrated in further household appliances?

Fashion retailer J-Crew has opened their first menswear only boutique in the historic Tribeca Tavern. Mingled with all the trendy menswear, the bar remains open and the beer still flows on tap. In conserving the historic use and character of the Tribeca Tavern, J-Crew has created the fashion boutique-liquor store hybrid.
“Garrafón” is the Spanish word used to describe bad quality alcohol. It’s also one of the most used words on social media networks on weekend mornings, a time where a lot of people complain about the quality of their drinks from the night before.
A consumer tired of suffering from bad hangovers created a collaborative website called the “Guía Garrafón”. It aims to report bars that serve bad alcohol but also recognises bars where consumers can find good quality alcohol.
Within a week of the site’s launch, it garnered thousands of consumer reports and more than 11,000 fans on Facebook.
