SousScale

Adam Louie

Graduate Industrial Design

SousScale is an appliance with a simple goal—to help you cook. It’s connected to the Internet, and lets you download recipes instantly. When you cook, it takes you through the recipe step-by-step on its built-in color screen as you measure the ingredients, so you get it right every time. SousScale can multiply recipes for more last-minute dinner guests, and even suggest substitutions if you run out of an
ingredient.

Developed by Adam Louie as his Industrial Design Master’s Project, the SousScale is more than a design concept— it’s a usable, tested, fully-functional hardware-software system. Through the design process, SousScale was prototyped and refined in several iterations. The final system is based on the open-source Arduino platform, with a case combining 3D-printed plastic and CNC-machined mahogany.
