observing the children eat through video recordings I noticed the
biggest issues were scooping food from the bowl and then delivering it
into their mouths. Parents disliked it when their child would place
their whole face in the bowl to eat. If the food was delivered to them
then this would not be an issue. Other home feeding devices that are
motorized cost thousands of dollars like the Obi. I wanted to create
something lightweight and affordable to parents because as the child
grows they get better motor control within their bodies and as a result
these devices become obsolete.
Materials include: Arduino-controlled servo motor, lasercut wood and acrylic, 3D printed spoon and bowl plus misc. hardware.
