Smart fork

HAPILABS has introduced a new product that aims to help you lose weight and improve digestion. The HAPIfork is a ‘smart fork’ that lets you know when you’re eating too fast. Why? Because if you eat quickly, your brain doesn’t have time to register that you’re full. The slower you eat, the faster you feel full, so you take in fewer calories during each meal.

The clever fork transmits data to a personalised online account, via USB or your smartphone. It will be available later this year in the US and France, and hopefully in the UK soon. What do you think? Gizmo or gimmick? Only time will tell…
