It's a spatula. It's a cookbook. It...doesn't exist yet

Wirelessly connects to recipes on your computer.

A lot of the "conceptual gadgets" we feature here are just for laughs. Case in point: Buster the snail vacuum . But this one, called Coo.Boo, I think is actually pretty neat. It's shaped like a spatula, but it's actually a "digital cookbook" that wirelessly collects recipe information or even audio-visual cooking lessons from your computer and displays them on its screen.

I love to find recipes on food blogs and recipe sites, so this could be really cool so that I don't have to either jet back and forth from the stove to my computer screen, or print out a recipe and inevitably get it totally covered in molasses or fish sauce or whatever sticky stuff I'm cooking with. So I could totally use the Coo.Boo. And the best part? It's dishwasher-safe.

But it's a prototype, so you can't get one yet. And neither can I. Boo!
