Let’s talk about your salt shaker. Not something you normally upgrade, right? Those days are gone, friends.
Meet Smalt: the smart, interactive salt shaker that could change your life… I mean your kitchen. This gadget plays music, changes colors and will work as a centerpiece for any party you plan to throw this summer.
Take a look at the salt shaker you currently have. What does it do? Dispenses salt, yes? Super. But can it play music? The Smalt is blue-tooth enabled and can play your favorite songs. You can even pair it with Amazon’s Echo or Alexa. You could be a salt-shaking DJ.
Plus, this device emits color-changing mood light. Ooh. Aah. Your party just went from good to great. The Smalt can be used indoors or out and the company’s website shows both a black and white model, which could be confusing for pepper lovers.
You can also use this device as a conversation starter; because Smalt is the Norwegian word for “narrow.” So there’s that.
The company took to Twitter to promote the device:

“Everything tastes better with a little bit of salt. Surprise your guests and their palate with fun, interactive way to shake salt and bring out the flavor,” according to the Smalt website.
The bad news is that this product, which is reportedly funded by IndieGoGo, hasn’t hit shelves yet and doesn’t have a price tag either. You’ll have to sign up for the company’s newsletter to find out when it will be in stores, which also gets you a 50 percent off discount. Or simply stay with us for updates on this.
