Transformed Chopsticks / Hygienic Tableware

Transformed Chopsticks
Transformed Chopsticks

In China, there has been no tradition of a meal-sharing system since ancient times. Everyone eats the same food on the same table, which will lead to the cross-infection of bacteria and viruses. Especially when using single tableware. Transformed chopsticks start with chopsticks (China Traditional tableware), by observing the difference in the posture of the hand when eating at a distance and eating at a close distance, a pair of chopsticks that can be converted between public chopsticks and private chopsticks are designed, on the premise of ensuring the experience of using chopsticks, Effectively preventing the cross-infection.
