Magic Tray
Magic Tray

This product is a tray set applied with the principle of magnetism. I have observed the mistakes occurred when carrying foods in restaurants by servers and attempted to think of a way to solve the problem of spillage. When food is carried the spring device in the handle raises the magnet within the tray to the underside of the surface allowing for the steel lined cups and bowls to stick.

But, when the tray is put down and the spring released the magnetic panel falls away from the underside, disconnecting contact with the objects held on the tray.
