My product, the Prott, is targeted to people who are unable to see.

After researching through some of the problems they might encounter while engaging in daily activities, the problem of not being able to carry a tray of food, in a food court/ fast food restaurant scenario, caught my attention - as they would need to hold their walking stick in their other hand.
 
Hence, assuming that in a food court or in a fast food restaurant, the plates, bowls and cutlery sizes are of a standard size, I came up with the Prott, a single-handed tray, inspired by an artist’s palette.
 
The tray is cut into holes that specifically fit all the plates, bowls, cups & cutleries. There is a special opening for the thumb (like in a palette), allowing the tray to be carried with one hand.
 
Not only is each section of the tray labelled with braille for easy identification, this product is also sustainable
