If you were a design professor, what grade would you give this? Snactiv, a sort of wearable set of chopsticks, is a ridiculous concept--but I can't deny it solves the "problem" its target users face.
At press time Snactiv's Kickstarter campaign had mere hours left, but had been successfully funded with $40,541 in pledges on a $20,000 goal.
I believe this product would go over well in America and Asia, but not Europe, where eating is more of a standalone activity conducted in a group and with dignity. I remember eating a meal in the home of a Roman family as a young man, and using a piece of bread to sop up the sauce on my plate; "Per favore--fa brutta," the hostess whispered to me. ("Please don't do that, it's brutish/ugly.")
I'd be very curious, in particular, to hear opinions of the Snactiv from the Italians or the French. This thing might get an "A" at Pratt and an "F" at Domus.
