Dark Dining / dining device

Dark Dining

Most of those with visual disability still need others’ help to finish their meals. And they often put all dishes into one plate or bowl, so the foods are all mixed together. Therefore, they usually can’t taste the different flavor of the dishes.
So I want to develop a kind of device which can be used with any tableware. This device could detect the position of food. When the tableware gets closer to the food, the device will go on with faster sound or vibration. So that can help users pick up their food easily.
