Talk about a High Tech Knife

CNJ is on the forefront of bringing you cutlery news, even when it is a bit out of the “collecting” realm. I would be remiss if, with CNJ being a purely electronic news source, I didn’t inform you about some of the technological concept advancements in knives.

Today’s feature is the epitome of a High-tech knife (by definition High tech- “technology that is at the cutting edge…”). 

No, I’m not talking about a super-duper steel, or some outer space multi-colored handle material, or any of the typical topics when you think of high-tech knives.

Instead, I am talking about a knife that actually measures the temperature of what you are cutting. Sounds pretty futuristic doesn’t it, like something used on the Jettsons, or Battlestar Galactica.

This high tech wonder is cutlery in the strictest sense of the word and is actually part of a three piece set with the fork and spoon (they also preform some cool feats themselves). It is called Intelligent Cutlery- IC3.

Here is their pitch and photos-

The IC3 concept consists of a computerized shaft with 3 interchangeable eating apparatuses; fork, spoon, and knife. The fork analyzes composition such as fat, protein, sugars. The spoon measures weight, and the knife takes temperature readings. Together this info creates a detailed report on what you’re eating, helpful to those with diabetes and nutritional sufficiencies.
