Steering Meal is a project focused on the American habit of eating in the car. There are many reasons to be found eating in the car, but through all scenarios it is found to be cramped and messy. This product is intended to utilize the space of a steering wheel with a built-in food tray. This way, space is maximized for the user with a surface directly in front of them to eat upon. The food tray is accessed by pushing back the steering handles and opening the base to a clean acrylic surface. Eating in the car can be a private escape with the Steering Meal.
