CES 2013: A ‘Smart’ Fork That Measures Your Fork Servings Per Minute & Helps You Diet

ces13_hapiforkIf you’ve ever had a problem eating too much, or are just trying to watch what you eat, this ‘smart’ fork may be what you’re looking for. Unveiled at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, the HAPIfork is an electronic fork that measures your fork servings per minute, intervals between those servings, and total meal time. The fork (or spoon, which will also be available) then transmits this information via USB so you can track your progress through its online dashboard or mobile app.

French engineer Jacques Lépine, inventor of the HAPIfork, spent several years working on the product after landing in the hospital for a severe heartburn that closely resembled a heart attack due to his quick eating habits.

Slated for an April release, HAPIforks could be one of the best and most revolutionary tools for maintaining a healthy diet. Complete with a full 21-day coaching program that provides videos, tips, and balanced meal plans, the ‘smart’ forks and spoons are expected to sell for roughly $99, come in a variety of colors and be fully water-proof.

Visit the HAPILABS website to check out more information about the HAPIfork or to place your pre-order today.
