Chopsticks Mate / Chopsticks Mate

Chopsticks Mate

How to use Chopsticks is very difficult to most people outside China. What we design is to help them to use the Chopsticks as using tweezers, which, almost everyone can do it without difficulty.This design is made up of soft rubber, which can easily change its shape. The mechanical spring not only helps fastening the whole structure, but also turns the chopsticks into tweezers so that everyone can use it.Its advantage is very obvious. Firstly, it is very small which can be easily put in their bags when touring. Secondly, there is no need to change the productive technology of chopsticks only because of this new design.
