Folks Kitchenware for the Blind

Folks Kitchenware is a system of kitchen utensils designed to aid the blind.

The system is designed to reinvent the kitchen as a tactile environment in which the sense of touch is as important as sight. It includes retractable guards for sharp knifes; a chopping board side tray that acts as an extension of the hand for transferring ingredients with less spillage; stove rings that accentuate the burner’s boundaries; and a buoyant teaspoon to warn of impending liquid contact. By leveraging sensory feedback and haptic cues, Folks Kitchenware enables the blind to prepare food safely and with confidence.
