Lets lose weight!
A new product has come on the market for those wanting a digital solution to losing weight – a fork. A Hong Kong company, HAPILABS, has showcased its HAPIfork at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, USA.
The wireless fork keeps track of your dining habits, including your eating speed, and then downloads data via USB or Bluetooth to your iPhone or PC. The purpose of the fork is to help you eat more slowly. It tells you how long it took to eat your meal, the amount of ''fork servings'' taken per minute, and the intervals between ''fork servings''. If you are eating too fast, the fork will vibrate to let you know to slow down. The HAPIfork weighs 65 grams and is on sale for $99.
