After reviewing several of my classmates design blogs, and digging through several different articles, I found that T. James post review of the new Co Design Silver Spoon, the Lift Lab, to be quite interesting. This groundbreaking invention is supposed to help those who are suffering from old age and disease, specifically Parkinson’s, to feed themselves more efficiently.
The technology in this nifty new tableware is designed to cancel the motion of body tremors, making feeding yourself easier for those who are struggling. One way to maintain your dignity by far. The Lift Lab’s founder, Anupam Pathak, derived this invention from motion sensors and accelerometers, which are found inside the handle to detect the tremor. It comes with different attachments and is easy for packing on the go. I agree with my fellow classmate when he says, “Co Design … you get 4 out of 5 spoonfuls!”
