Imagineer / The blind tableware


The blind people are usually troubled by a lot of inconveniences, they are spending a lot of time in identifying the exact position of food and unable to enjoy the visual happiness, which are supposed to be the dining experience that they lack in. “imagineer” fulfills the blind people’s desire for visual enjoying. The plate can not only prompt the blind people by voice the exact position of food in the plate, but also describe the appearance of food. In doing so. The blind diner can hear the voiced description of food, imagining what the food looks like in his or her mind and enjoying a different dining experience.
