The Samurai Samorai is an interactive cutting board that shows you how to make sushi in an easy and playful way.
The Sushi Samorai interaction is possible due to a few key elements;
On the surface of the board there are 9 metal strips that are wired to an iPack. The knife as well is wired to the iPack and is, in fact the ground key.
This way, whenever the knife touches one of the strips a circle is closed.
The software and animation were performed in Adobe Flash.
The cutting board is an everyday, ordinary object and we found it to be just that, ORDINARY and in other words quite boring. We decided to add a twist to it and make the “chore” of cutting veggies to a fun and exciting experience.
