What Functionality Can a Smart Cutting Board Provide Compared to a Regular Cutting Board?

Some potential features of a smart cutting board:

Temperature measurement:

This can help monitor thaw times, unsafe food temperatures, and rest periods for cooked meats.

Moisture detection:

Track the time and number of washes before sterilization or other periodic maintenance. Also useful for alerting users that they have been placed on a wet counter or other damp environment that may be unhygienic.

 Impact Monitor:

Detects when the board needs washing due to falling on the floor. Issues cleaning or inspection warnings after hard impacts such as those from a cleaver, allowing the user to check for surface damage.

 Surface chemistry analyzer:

Checks for dangerous bacteria, toxic residues or pesticides and otherhazardous chemicals that may pose a risk to the user's health.

 Variable Durometer:

Similar to dynamic body armor, the board can change its stiffness or other physical properties to facilitate various training methods. Some examples: change in hardness when more flexibility is required (e.g. grinding versus sheeting). It might even be possible to change the emissivity characteristics of a smartboard so that the thermal mass stays cold longer when making a pie crust or pastry.
