Instructor: Jini Zopf and Andy Lin
Description: The product objective is to design a silverware kit for a wide scope of users with dexterity limitations to elevate their entire eating experience from eating, washing, storing, and taking-out. Eating should be a comfortable experience for everyone, regardless of disability. But today, that's not the case. Many users with disability experience inconveniences in their eating because they have to rely on either custom-made tools or poorly generalized products. It is very difficult to make all-in-one products for users with disability because of the endless variables to consider. This makes it difficult for users who aren't using custom tools to find the right product conveniently in stores, or find the right product at all. These products that currently exist for users, can only be properly used by so many people because of their narrow scope of users.
