One hand free: Cocktail party plate, version 2.0

Solutions to the problem of human beings only having two hands are always welcome around here. Here's an improved plate idea for cocktail parties, the Mantara Dish.

This crockery design solves that problem of having a drink in one hand, and a plate of food that requires utensils in the other: designer Gabriel Contino envisions a mini dish with a place to park your wine glass that also includes a secure slot for that necessary spork.

Now you can have that right hand free to shake hands, working the room properly. Too bad this little invention is not ready for those Fourth of July cocktail parties where your humble DVICE narrators are often spotted.
