“Pass the salt” just took on a whole new meaning, thanks to SMALT, the world’s first smart salt shaker. With a Bluetooth speaker, music streaming capabilities, color-changing lights, and, of course, salt dispensing abilities, this little gem is bound to up your hosting game. Call it OTT or just brilliant AF — either way, it’s bound to be the catalyst of some great conversations at your next dinner party.

The gadget was developed by Herb & Body, a California-based lifestyle company that creates tech to make daily life a little easier. Their mission is to “[transform] ordinary kitchen tools that people have been using for centuries into experiences for the senses.” From providing background jams for get-togethers to dimming the lights to bringing out the flavor in your munchies, SMALT is certainly taking entertaining to an entirely new level.
