A Hong Kong-based company has introduced what's either the most annoying or the most brilliant eating utensil ever: a sensor-equipped fork that buzzes and lights up when you eat too fast, effectively irritating you into slowing down. The slower you eat, the less you eat, or so the theory goes. One fatal flaw: Hapifork is available in fork form only. So there's nothing to stop you from, say, picking up a spoon and shoveling a gallon of ice cream into your mouth. Hapifork was showcased at CES last week, and it's available on pre-order for $99. Here, Hapilabs's Philippe Monteiro Da Rocha explains how it works.
Hapifork? Happy Fork?
If eating less makes you happy sure but typically eating more does!!
No thanks I'll stick with my super size fork (and old salad fork that's two times normal size!).
There are other reasons that cannot be said, to why this device was not made with a spoon.
A vibrating smooth shape rounded vibrating spoon, maybe used for other reasons or locations, where a pointy fork would not, lol.......... enough said, ha ha...... snort.
Probably a great way to get kids to eat everything on their plate... some how I think it would make them want to eat more faster just so it does buzz and blink.
@Robot, I think you might be underestimating how masochistic some people are ;-)
Hapifork is an odd name... I originally misread it as the Haptifork (as in haptic feedback) which would have been a much more appropriate (if not more marketable) name.
Okay, well this would work i suppose. I think that i would be more annoyed in to using a normal fork though.
