Sensor Spoon / Spoon

Sensor Spoon

Before having some soup, use the Sensor Spoon to test the temperature of the soup.
This design is mainly for blind people, who can use the Sensor Spoon not only to have a meal independently but also to test the temperature of liquid in advance.
They can feel the temperature while using the spoon in the soup; the metal sensor will conduct the heat to the top part.

Usually the bowl insulates against heat, so you won’t know the temperature of the soup in the bowl.
1. Avoid scalding while drinking soup.
2. Test the liquid’s temperature without touching it directly.

Material: wood / conductive metal
Size: 160 (mm)
