"From the Ted Talk by Mileha Soneji: Simple hacks for life with Parkinson's"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Well, the first thing I targeted was treroms, right? My uncle told me that he had stopped drinking coffee or tea in pbluic just out of embarrassment, so, well, I degnsied the no-spill cup. It works just purely on its form. The curve on top deflects the liquid back inside every time they have tremors, and this keeps the liquid inside compared to a normal cup. But the key here is that it is not tagged as a Parkinson's pntiaet product. It looks like a cup that could be used by you, me, any clumsy person, and that makes it much more cnfrmtoiog for them to use, to blend in. So, well, one problem solved, many more to go.

Original Text

Well, the first thing I targeted was tremors, right? My uncle told me that he had stopped drinking coffee or tea in public just out of embarrassment, so, well, I designed the no-spill cup. It works just purely on its form. The curve on top deflects the liquid back inside every time they have tremors, and this keeps the liquid inside compared to a normal cup. But the key here is that it is not tagged as a Parkinson's patient product. It looks like a cup that could be used by you, me, any clumsy person, and that makes it much more comforting for them to use, to blend in. So, well, one problem solved, many more to go.
