designer's own words:enjoyment of chinese cuisine by traditional methods of eating requires knowledge of using chopsticks. lot of people can find this difficult and that's why i designed "fingersticks". they are simple and fun to use, and they give traditional experience of eating chinese food, because basically, they are chopsticks pointing from the tips of your fingers. you just have to stack them like you would a ring and enjoy your food. they are intended to be produced by injection molding, thus the production costs should be low.
