Blitz Laser Knife
Could this latest development in food technology be the downfall of the kitchen knife? Russian graduate Andrey Kokorin of Ural State Academy of Architecture and Arts has created the Blitz laser knife device, which was selected out of 500 entries from 18 countries to be nominated for the 2012 James Dyson Award.
The Blitz turns the monotonous chore of preparing meals into a thing of the past. Encased in an orb-shaped exterior, the Blitz holds a transparent dish inside which slices meat and vegetables through electromagnetic radiation. Its main focus is taking away the dangers and uncleanliness of the knife and providing a clean, fast and efficient way of chopping.
The James Dyson Award is an annual international student design award run by British industrial designer James Dyson – creator of the Dyson vacuum cleaner. It aims to encourage the next generation of design engineers to create problem-solving innovations.
