Dining is something that we usually take for granted. However, for the visually impaired, simple tasks like eating and pouring can be extremely challenging.
For the visually impaired, they cannot gauge the amount of food picked up with a spoon, and much uneaten food is usually left scattered around the plate. Furthermore, misalignment of the spout to the cup while pouring water and cutleries falling into a hot bowl of soup are the worst experiences to deal with without proper vision.
To enhance the dining experience for the visually impaired, Eatsy is the solution.
Eatsy is a set of multi-functional tableware consisting of a plate, bowl, cup, and utensils. Each of them has a unique feature with subtle details that avoid stigmatization. They are universal, applicable for children, elderly and even people without special needs. Eatsy is user-friendly for both left and right-handed users, and they can be stacked up for easy storage.
Each piece has a distinctive spot to provide sensory cues for the visually impaired.
The Eatsy cup has a well-thought design which features a food-safe silicone flap which indents inward to locate the spout while pouring.
The Eatsy plate features a raised corner and slope to trap food. The curvature of the plate acts as a guide to direct the spoon to the corner for scooping. The corners also serve as a spot for drinking and pouring.
Cutleries can also be hooked onto the sides of the plate to prevent them from slipping.
