References: designboom, a design news blog, recently held a design competition called dining in 2015. With an impressive 4843 entrants from 98 countries, three designs tied for first place. This was one of the winners - din-ink by Andrea Cingoli, Paolo Emilio Bellisario, Cristian Cellini, and Francesca Fontana from Italy. Replace your ink pen caps with these utensils.

Creating items that will make times like this easier for people who need to multitask are those that will thrive in the marketplace.
