About 20,000 years ago came the spoon made of wood, stone or ivory.
Of course, the knife already existed, but its utility was diverse, being used mainly as a weapon.
But the first cutlery to be considered as such was the fork, introduced in Europe in the 11th century.
And since then no one has bothered with it anymore.
Therefore, the invention of the Michel / Fabian design studio draws attention.
Goûte was created to simulate the sensation of eating by sucking fingers - with much more hygiene in the process.
The instrument aims to replace spoons, to enable you to enjoy creamy foods such as yogurt and honey.
With it, designers aim to rethink people's relationship with food.
The name chosen is a mixture of two French words: goût (taste) and goutte (drop).
Their inventors know what they do.
Dr. Andreas Fabian is a professor at Buckinghamshire University (England).
And Charles Michel is an artist, food scientist and former Michelin-star chef.
They believe that conventional cutlery has been designed with functional purposes in mind.
For this reason, they decided to create utensils that also enrich the sensory pleasures of eating.
The instrument is for sale on its creators' website for 29 pounds.
