The context of use of my design is self balanced servicing tray. The problem that my design solves is the spilling or dropping the plates, cups or any other dishes served. My design provides a safe, spill proof, accident proof servicing experience. It is not just a servicing tray but it is an aesthetic, post-modern looking servicing element for casual or elegant use.

The innovation in my design is the its unique property of self balanced which uses the Earth's gravitational force. This design addresses directly the opportunity described above. I brought a new mechanism to servicing tray and made it smart. spill proof as well as ergonomics.

I was inspired by the balance systems of race yachts and gyroscope systems.The advantage it provides is that the user can walk safely and fast while serving the food and drinks.Other advantage is its unique design making it very competitive in the market.

There is a metal ball attached to the tray with a conical metal part. This is the most important element of the design because it makes the tray stay always perpendicular to gravitational direction. There are two circular metal frames around the tray which make the tray stay still while they are rotating in x and y plane. The conical part with the ball can be turned 180 degrees and attached to the handle to keep the tray on a table.
