Kitchen Tools for People with One Arm – We All Appreciate Expanding What We Can't Do Alone

We all know Donald Trump's supporters don't have a problem with his making fun of people with disabilities,. But there are plenty of the rest of us who know everyone is equal in that we all enjoy tools that enable us to do what we can't do alone.

Loren Lim has come up with an award-winning design of kitchen attachments that can allow a person with one arm wash dishes, chop vegetables, and bag items, etc. He is an industrial design student at the National University of Singapore. He is in talks with companies to market his ideas. 

Called Oneware, one of his most unique ideas includes a perforated silicone layer that grips dishes so users can apply pressure while scrubbing one surface.
