One stop shop for meal prepping

Our assignment for this studio project was to design a product that could be used in the home. I decided to think about what kind of tools could help people who were trying to lead healthier lives. I was able to talk to people who had gone on weight loss journeys, and after taking a look at the tools they used I looked for a way to improve the experience.
That led to the creation of Bentos Box. It allows you to weigh out your food portions, and instantly log them into your meal tracking app through bluetooth.

Taking a look at the market

Implementing the research

Bentos Box

Bentos box is the perfect tool for someone who is tracking their meals. It allows you to weigh out your food portions, and instantly log them into your meal tracking app through bluetooth.

Full of thoughtful features

One great feature of Bentos is the discreet placement of the scale inside the inner flap so you can take this with you anywhere you go. It also has a removable separator for dry and wet food, and a gasket to prevent leakage. The scale itself is enclosed in soft silicone and it can be easily removed for washing the bowl, or for utilizing the scale to weigh other things.

Instant logging

Instead of developing an app to go along with it, I wanted Bentos to work seamlessly with whichever food tracking app the user is already used to, for example MyFitnessPal. That way any barriers to entry such as learning a new tracking system could be reduced.
