Aware is a kind of chopsticks that could remind diabetics of how dangerous the food they eat is to their health. The richer the food is in sugar, the harder it is for the user to handle the chopsticks to get the food.
When a little sensor is embedded into the chopsticks, chemical signal that indicates the level of sugar in food can be transformed into magnetic signal at the tip of chopsticks. The more the food contains sugar, the harder it is for diabetics to separate the tips, thus suppressing their appetite for sweets and reminding them of how dangerous the food is. Diabetics can carry Aware with them everywhere due to its compact size.
