New knife design could keep sufferes safe

Keeping food allergy sufferers safe while going out to eat has always been a concern, especially for parents. Outside of the obvious concern of digesting a food that will cause a reaction, another concern is the potential cross contamination of utensils that may have traces of allergic foods, much the same as candies without nuts that are processed on production belts with traces on them. 

 However, there may be some good news as the traditional knife may be on its way out thanks to young designer Andrey Kokorin, who has submitted the  “Innovative Laser Device For Cutting Of Foodstuff’ for the The James Dyson Awards.

The circular pod uses lasers to cut up the food using a series of laser rings. It is believed that with further research it could become the way of the future. The best bit – no washing up after use.
