SoTastyLah / Taste and eating

Eating disorder is a prevalent issue amongst Singaporean elderly. 1 in 3 of them are either at risk of malnutrition or malnourishment due to the loss of taste buds.
Our technology allows for various taste, such as salty and sour, to be electrically stimulated on our tongue.
SoTastyLah is an electronic spoon that explores into the area of weaving the familiarity of culture with the unfamiliarity of technology to bridge the uneasiness elderly has with using technology. Cultural patterns are integrated into the spoon to make it more approachable and friendly.
