Electrolux's prototype 'Smart Knife' is being hailed as the iPad of kitchen utensils.
The rechargeable knife has a sensor blade that can tell you how fresh your food is, whether it's contaminated with bacteria and the nutritional value while you're chopping.
There's also Siri-style voice software and embedded 'negative ions' that can keep food fresher for longer.
We're kind of sensing a flaw here. A distracting talking touch screen + very sharp knife = recipe for disaster.
But as pointless gadgets go this is a pretty stellar option.
