Your salt shaker just became obsolete!!

Introducing the "smart" salt shaker:

Is This Bluetooth Salt Shaker the Juicero of Seasoning?

It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you of a “smart salt shaker” called “The Smalt.” Oddly, the shaking aspect of this shaker is still decidedly unplugged—you still have do all the shaking; Smalt just “tracks” it for you. (And lights up. And plays music.) It is, essentially, the Juicero of seasoning.

Obviously, YOU NEED THIS RIGHT NOW!!!1!! :WooHoo:

Article doesn't seem to say how much this baby costs, but clearly it is well worth it at any price.

If you have to ask how much it costs, you cannot afford it.
