Touch me / Cutlery for the blind

Touch me
Touch me

Currently, in poverty-stricken areas, blind people have a terrible experience when dining alone. The problem that blind people face when eating is not knowing the location of various foods. Feeling the position of food with your hands can easily be scalded. Therefore, we designed an insulated dinner plate to help blind people know where the food is. By touching the edge of the plate and taking the height of the plate as the benchmark, they can understand the location of different foods, avoid contact with food, and better complete a meal.
