Smart Tongkat

"Tongkat" stands for a walking stick in Malay. For seniors using a walking stick, it is difficult to bend down and retrieve items. After surveying the market for existing solutions, we found a walking stick with a claw attached in the end. This feature does not solve the problem. It requires lifting the walking stick to retrieve what is grabbed with the claw. This action risks the balance of the user. Hence, our team build a walking stick that can grab and lift the item towards the user, without the trouble of lifting it.
