Wooden Spoon Stylus: Brilliant or Silly? Beth Snyder March 10, 2013 That’s actually an honest question, by the way, because I really don’t know. For those of you who use an iPad or other tablet in the kitchen instead of printing a recipe, I can only imagine how hard it must be to keep the screen clean when scrolling for more instructions or to wake the screen back up. I also know there are a number of products made that are essentially zip-top plastic bags so you can place your tablet safely inside without fear of spilling on it. But this actually makes some kind of sense to me. You’re probably going to have to be stirring something while you cook, so having a wooden spoon that has a treated handle to make a stylus seems reasonable. But then I think…what if you’re making something soupy? Wouldn’t it drip down the handle onto your tablet anyway? And if you have anything on your hands and happen to touch the end of the handle, you’ll get it on your screen as well. I guess just like anything else, how practical this is would depend on how you’re using it and what you’re making. Probably not the best idea for, say, soup. But probably pretty excellent when making cookies. I think. The thing is, it only costs $7.00 US. Which is cheap for a stylus, yet expensive for a wooden spoon. But if it works and you win, you just saved yourself more money than you think, because you’re also protecting your tablet from being damaged by food. If it doesn’t work…my theory on stuff like this is that I’ve spent more money on stupider things, so it’s easy to write it off. Source: Gizmodo Share This With The World!
