New light-up LED chopsticks designed for gamers makes snacking an OP experience

  • A recent LED chopstick design was created to assist gamers by offering a more enjoyable gaming and eating experience, keeping fingers and keyboards oil-free for snacking.

  • The light’s color can switch between nine colors: red, blue, yellow, green, white, purple, orange, pink and mint. Both chopsticks feature their own color settings, allowing for multiple color combinations.

  • For convenient clean up, the LED unit on the handle is easily detached for safely washing the resin chopstick like a typical utensil.

A Japanese company has created chopsticks with illuminating, color-changing LED lights to enhance the gaming experience by making snacking less disruptive and more enjoyable. 

Companies are expanding the meaning of multifunctional when it comes to chopsticks, redesigning the classic utensil for specific intentions such as the electric chopsticks made to stimulate umami and Louis Vuitton-branded chopsticks for fashion. 

Shanghai Donya, a retailer for specialized digital gadgets, designed the LED chopsticks to assist gamers in having a more enjoyable play experience, keeping fingers and keyboards oil-free for snacking. Without the need to turn on ceiling lights or fumbling to see, the LED light can help light up a cavernous bag of chips or the last strands of ramen without disrupting the gaming experience. 

Meeting the standards of Japan’s Food Sanitation Act and the Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare, the light-up LED gaming chopsticks are 260 millimeters long (approximately 10.24 inches) and are mostly made of resin.

To use the chopsticks’ main feature, users simply press a button on the handle to instantly make the chopsticks glow vibrantly in the dark with LED, or light-emitting diode technology.

The lights can switch between nine different colors: red, blue, yellow, green, white, purple, orange, pink and mint. Both chopsticks feature their own color settings, allowing for multiple color combinations.

Unfortunately, these specialty chopsticks are not intended for use in cooking or in enjoying oily dishes because the heat and oil may decrease the quality of the chopsticks.

For convenient clean up, the LED unit on the handle is easily detached for safely washing the resin chopstick like a typical utensil.

The LED chopsticks launched on May 26 for 580 yen (approximately $4.51) and can be purchased at participating Dospara locations — a computer specialty chain — in Japan or through their online store.
