It's amazing where technology is taking us. There is an app for practically everything.
Well now there is one for your eating habits.
Introducing the Hapifork! This fork can track your eating speed, pattern and habits and then track them using the hapifork mobile app.
The fork is set to vibrate if you take more than one bite every 10 seconds (This can be adjusted). The way it tracks this is by a circuit in the fork tines that is completed whenever the fork touches your mouth.
The concept of the fork was developed 7 years ago by Jacques Lepine using the same philosophies as trying to get habitual nail biters to break the habit.
If you are really struggling to slow down, the gentle vibration might be a helpful reminder to get you to do so. However the price tag of $99 a fork might leave you less than thrilled.
The good news is that it is easy to charge and on average only needs a refuel every 4 days.
Has anyone tried this product? I would love to get my hands on it and try it out myself.
