A new Internet of Things device has surfaced on crowdfunding website Indiegogo, and it’s one of the odder gadgets we’ve seen. Called Smalt, this smart salt dispenser doubles as a Bluetooth speaker, making it easy to add some tunes (and salt) to your romantic dinner. The unit could also double as a centerpiece of sorts, but its massive price tag means many people will probably just stick to shaking salt onto their food the traditional way.
It’s perhaps better to think of Smalt as a Bluetooth speaker that happens to also contains salt and a dispensing mechanism. The device contains a small removable drawer on the bottom in which salt is dispensed based on the quantities specified by the mobile app. Users can use their smart phone to tell smalt to dispense salt in either dash, pour or pinch quantities.
Finally, the device sports an ambient light for setting the mood. Smalt is listed on Indiegogo right now, where it is being offered for $99 as a super early bird special. The planned retail price will be $199 USD, assuming the product makes it to market. Shipping to backers is estimated to start in March 2018.
