The Fred “Equal Measure” Measuring Cup

by Joey deVilla on November 15, 2008

The Fred “Equal Measure” Measuring Cup not only provides imperial and metric measurements, but some equivalents measures for a sense of perspective. For example, the “100 mL” mark is accompanied by "volume of the brain of a Tyrannosaurus Rex” and the “two-and-half-cup” mark is captioned with “as many grains of flour as people on the planet (6.8 billion).”

At $12.50 from Amazon.com, it might make a good stocking stuffer for the science or math geek on your gift list:

The cup was designed by Harry White Design, who created these other two designs – first, the “Numbers” measuring cup:

425_numbers_jug_big 

and the “Abitrary” measuring cup:

425_arbitrary_jug_big
