      Apparently the electric carving knife came out of a General Electric company party where they had a contest to see who could come up with the most ridiculous electric appliance.  

      The winner was the electric carving knife.  

      And then someone in engineering decided to try making one.

      And then someone in marketing saw it.

      The rest is history.  

      But an electric spoon is a whole 'nother level!   Yes, it plus the electric knife, and the electric can opener, and a few other suchlike, are valid for disability access devices.  But otherwise...?
