Assignment: Redesign a hand-tool to make it ergonomic.
ergomoto is a chopstick that is intuitive, comfortable, and easy-to-use. we decided to redesign chopsticks because we noticed that many users were not practicing the traditional hold due to reports of it being ‘difficult’ and ‘uncomfortable in use’. creating a smooth, single piece chopstick, we also incorporated curves along the handle which guide the user into proper finger placement. pictured below is the final prototype of our design, made using modulan.
