Fill Up Your Brain: Equal Measure Cup from FRED

Fill Up Your Brain: Equal Measure Cup from FRED

Have you ever wondered how what 6.8 billion grains of flour look like? This, incidentally, is also how many people live on our planet. How about twenty thousand grains of rice? Or maybe you want to measure enough oil to fill the brain of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. This new beaker will help you measure all these things and more...

It's called the Equal Measure and it's made by FRED. Fortunately for those of us who don't have any recipes calling for sugar equal to the water in a cumulus cloud the size of a bus, it also has measurements in ounces, milliliters, and cups in this 2 1/2 cup beaker.

Really great for kids, or for anyone who is interested in measuring out five thousand drops of water. No word on availability yet; it will probably be available at ShopFosters or another of FRED's major retail outlets online soon.
