Cooking spoon meets stylus, keeps touchscreens nice and clean
Love cooking? Then here's an accessory you'll be wishing you had during your last bake-off. It's called the ispoon and it's pretty much what it looks like – a large wooden mixing spoon with a handle that can be used as a stylus. Brilliant, isn't it? 

As you can already tell, the purpose of this modern spoon is to let one use a tablet or smartphone even when their hands are dirty. That's perfect for those times when you're cooking something new and you're reading the recipe from your mobile device. The stylus embedded in the handle should get along well with your tablet, regardless of its make, model, or type of display it comes with.

Sadly, the ispoon isn't in stock right now, but you can keep an eye on the Umbra store where it should be available once again in the near future. The accessory is priced at $7.

I don't know about how you cook.. but if my hands are too dirty to touch the touch screen, then they're probably too dirty to touch the spoon too... and if they are dirty and I'm handling a spoon, then the spoon will just get the screen dirty anyway.

And as Bblader mentioned.. any liquids on the spoon will just run down and onto the screen.

I see this as a fail.

Better.. just keep a stylus near your pad so you can pick that up and use it when necessary.

This is just as bad as the bowl with the slot for your phone. Who thinks this crap up? It's okay to be away from your phone for a few hours, people. No serious harm will come of it.
