The 'Companion Bird' may not look like much to a strapping young person, but to senior citizens, it is a colorful tool designed to help make them more self-reliant. The 'Companion Bird' from designers Kim Bo-kyung and Baek Eun-ha is meant to latch onto railings to help seniors walk up stairways.

Walking up a staircase isn't as easy as it seems when you get older -- take it from a guy who has helped many an old lady up a staircase. The 'Companion Bird' provides much-needed grip and is easy on the eyes.
