Singing Straw / drinking straw

Singing Straw
Singing Straw

Visually-challenged people grasp information of what they are drinking only with their sense of taste and smell. Singing Straw helps such people by providing them with a third sense they can use when drinking something: hearing. It can also provide a little help when having a liquid food such as soup. When you put your finger into the ring part and put Singing Straw into your drink or food, the ball-type sensor creates a sound depending on the materials the liquid is made of. Eating food gives a pleasure as well as energy. By using Singing Straw, you can multiply such pleasure of eating.
