Troubled by the scars and scabs they received in the kitchen, Singaporean designer Kevin Chiam developed a set of cooking tools for the visually impaired in his final year at the National University of Singapore. The problem? Finding someone to help him bring his Folks product range to market. #MadeInSingapore

I think the knife is really good. it not only helps the blind but also seniors who are not blind but have failing eyesight as they age. The bright color of the retractable guard helps the highlight the edge so they know not to put their finger too near to the knife as they cut.

I feel like such initiatives should be highly encouraged and given ample support. After all, if there are so much of funding for all sort of start-ups these days; I don't see why this shouldn't qualify taking into consideration that it's also solving a problem that has been existent for the longest time.

From an investors perspective, there is probably low market demand for these products as they are in a niche category, and therefore won’t generate enough returns.

How could we help him to commercial this? It would be such a useful tool for the visually handicapped.

I have a visually impaired child, but I think this has so much more potential than that. I would love the lid just because I have 3 kids and my oldest loves to cook. Some of these tools would be great for us to use together. How about Shark tank? And I know you said Kickstarter won’t get you the man power, but if you show potential buyers you are more likely to get an investor.
