Text from the designer :
Imagine having always intelligent cutlery with you, giving you a feedback, no matter where or what you eat. That is IC3. An intelligent shaft has 3 different add ons: spoon, fork, knife. Each add-on can also fulfill another duty: the spoon adds the weight of food eaten, the shaft adds it. The knife can measure temperature and the fork can take small probes of the food and analyze it by its components like fat, proteins, lactose, sugar. Being equipped with bluetooth,the intelligent shaft can send the data measured for example to a personal nutritional agenda on the website of someone.
IC3 is not only a help for people suffering from diabetes or lactose insufficiency, but could help everyone to feed healthy everywhere. Located in the near future – e.g. all technology exist nowadays, only food analysis has to be miniaturized a step further. IC3 was chosen to be displayed at the “Designparcours Munich 2008” at the “Forum for Young Design” same year.
