Food Clamp

The idea with my invention is to create an efficient product that could potentially be useful in a stressful situation up in space. The Food Clamp would be used to ensure easy maneuvering of items from one’s plate to their mouth. It easily opens and closes to allow food to be scooped into the gap and easily dropped into the user’s mouths. It has holes on both sides to slide fingers in to slide open and closed. Each side is attached to each other by a nut and bolt, and they work as though using scissors (which could end up being a very interesting way of eating, and could even be kind of fun). Ultimately, this could be a very useful product, and hopefully it could supply some interest to the astronauts in space.
