It's only normal that companies start experimenting with MP3 docks to see what additional crazy contraptions they can add. The Frieling JOY Kitchen Scale is definitely one of those products.
The Frieling JOY Kitchen Scale is essentially a measuring tool that also doubles as a stereo. The dock fits all the current iPhones and iPods therefore you can listen to music and charge your device all at once. Behind it is the scale made from safety glass that displays the weight of the produce in ounces and grams only. If you're worried about dirtying the gadget, there's a protective cover that will protect it from all sorts of mess.
A scale/stereo hybrid is probably a strange combination, but it's not strange to see that there's a market for it. Besides, it's adding convenience to the cook of the house.
