Grate Expectations

Sometimes an invention is so brilliant because it is so simple and yet no one had ever thought of it before. One of the winners of the 2009 International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) competition is a cheese grater—with a solid bottom to catch the cheese. I wish I'd thought of that.

Another of the winners is a digital cookbook:
it sports a touchscreen and an edible print system with 18 "flavour" cartridges to recreate the taste of the dishes in the book.
I can imagine the dinner comments now: "Hmm...needs more magenta."
