If the one thing keeping you from being fit and healthy is the non-existence of an obscenely expensive fork that yells at you when you've eaten too much, well hold onto your giant butts: it exists!
But it doesn't yell, it vibrates. Bummer.
It's called a HAPIfork, and it's as first-world as you can get. It's a computerized fork that gives you a buzz when you're eating too fast. The product counts each bite you take and tracks your average meal time, the number of bites per serving, and the number of bites per meal where you were "overspeeding," or bringing the fork to your mouth too quickly.
The idea behind it is, if you eat too fast, you'll eat a lot before you feel full. The HAPIfork uploads its data after each meal either to your smartphone via Bluetooth or to your computer via a USB key attached to the end of the utensil.
Plus, not all meals are eaten with a fork or spoon. Especially delicious, dangerous french fries. It comes in five different colors and also is available as a spoon, though!
In the end, though… just one utensil costs ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS.
So, is it worth it? Probably not.
