A-Spoon / Spoon


When abducting someone, usually the first problem is to
anesthetize the hostage without them knowing of the attempt.
“How can I anesthetize someone without them noticing?”
“How can I drug someone’s food without anyone knowing?”
The concept of A-Spoon can affect the food without it being tainted
by any anesthetics before.
This concept is designed in a way that can identify the target user
with a fingerprint scanner planted in the handhold of the spoon.
After the identification it releases the anesthetic from a small
container into the food in the spoon, leading to anesthetizing
the target.
