Fork Vibrates When You Eat Too Much

Fork Vibrates When You Eat Too Much

This is a ‘smart’ fork that measures how fast you eat in one minute intervals and during the entire meal. It’s meant to help with weight loss through portion control. If you eat too much, too fast, the fork will vibrate. Which is a super nice way of saying “Stop shoveling food into your face for one second, god!” The fork plugs into a USB drive where you can track your overeating habits on an app. Wheeee! The diet device was created by French engineer Jacques Lépine who’s dubbed it the HAPIfork. Umm, HAPIfork? Sounds like SADfork to me! Or JUDGYfork. Or — OR — NEVERMINDI’LLJUSTEATWITHMYHANDSfork. Actually that last one just rolls right off the tongue, doesn’t it? Damn I’m good.

    This is definitely sounding like anything but a happifork. However, it is a great application for technology. For anyone who tries to follow a diet and has trouble keeping track of portions or calories, this fork can do some of the tracking for them. Now, do you sell this in the home goods section or electronics?
